"Thrills and laughs are carefully balanced in the fourth comic horror novel from L.M. Falcone. Young readers will find it almost impossible not to read just one more chapter before bed." - Quill & Quire

"This is an amazingly fast-paced story and amusing to boot. Descriptions of chilly manor houses and chilling cemeteries are here, but mostly there’s dialogue propelled with plenty of eerie action on every page. Reluctant readers will especially appreciate how quickly this moves while enjoying every moan and groan." - Booklist, Chicago
