Thank you so much to TheWriteReads and Farshore for the ebook to read and review for this blog tour.

Review: This book is so creepy but honestly so so entertaining. It’s a really unique thriller horror sci-fi book for middle grade to young teens and it’s so eerie and fun.

I loved the characters and instantly liked them which helps make it all the better, they had such a perfect dynamic and the mix of personalities made it perfect. They all were so smart and all had their own struggles, they all played a huge part in piecing together everything In the end and I seriously loved these kids. And also the evil villains should I say were amazing so so so creepy and sadistic even though they were bad I really liked them in a weird way.

The story was written so perfectly it was completely eerie the whole time, even when it was just subtle, the story had lots of twists and made me gasp in shock a few times. The spiders were terrifying had I didn’t prepare myself for what was going to come in this book at all.

I loved that through all the horrors, the eeriness and the creepiness the characters all learnt so much about themselves, about each other. I really loved that even though it was a horror and it was scary and creepy it also had a sweeter undertone with a sweet story of friendship and self discovery it really added another amazing element to the book.

I really thoroughly enjoyed this book more than I thought I would, it was more eerie and just creepy than blatentent horror but it was written in such a great perfect way. I am intrigued now how the second story in this series will go but it’s going to be really good I know because this one was.
