Scary stories are often told around a campfire, preferably with some s’mores. But what happens when that story you tell to scare your friends turns into a real issue? New Rotterdam, an eerie place well known for its monster legends (it even has its own wiki!) is no place to grow up. Emrys, a young boy who happens to enjoy various items of the horror variety, absolutely loves this place. He is an admin on New Rotterdam’s wiki, helping upkeep the many articles of the fabled monsters of the town. When he and his friends, Hazel and Serena, run into a talking book that used to be their neighbor (Yes, talking book. You read that right.) they learn that maybe the legends aren’t so fun and games after all… They’re very real. The End is here, and it’s hungry. Lock your doors.
Not big into horror, but while I don’t recommend reading this before bed, the plot line was very good. It keeps you tied in and ready for the next book in the series. I would recommend to any Horror enjoyer.
