The Clackity

We rated this book:


After losing her parents in a devastating accident when she was younger, Evie moved to Blight Harbor to live with her Aunt Desdemona, who deals with the paranormal going-ons in the town. One night when Desdemona goes to the abandoned slaughterhouse near the edge of town, Evie is intrigued; the slaughterhouse is the one place her aunt forbade her to go. Desdemona has disappeared— and in her place, a strange and terrifying creature named the Clackity appears. It tells Evie that if she ever wants to see her aunt again, she must enter a shadowy world filled with the things of nightmares and bring back the ghost of a serial killer— all while she searches for Des. Can Evie save her aunt? Or will she play right into the hands of the Clackity?

I liked this book because it was well imagined and amazingly creepy, with just the right amount of adventure and suspense to pull it all together. I liked Evie as a character, her persistence, and her will to protect her aunt, making this a great read! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a spooky, wildly entertaining ride.
