This book is amazing!! It was very fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time!

This book was so good. I had some doubts (because of the whole demon thing), but it was fantastic, with me racing through it. I was also expecting it to be scary, because well, basically everyone I heard talk about it said that it was creepy. So, I was surprised when I didn't find it scary at all, especially since I'm not the bravest person.. I guess just depends on whoever reading it. Overall I loved all the characters, the plot and just all of it. I am sad that there's only two books in the series though...

i really enjoyed this book. is there a second book? this one kind of ended on a cliffhanger.

The book was like a really spooky book. Filled with cobwebs, demons and witchcraft. I liked the concept of the book and how it was put together. I thought at first that this book was going to be a book about exorcism or a demon hunter book but this was totally different. The book itself paints a dark story but adds its light humor to the mix. I also like the fact that book made me think of Tim Burton and Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events.

As for characters I really liked getting to know. Prosper is not the most popular person in his town and his family. Felt super sad about how his life was and the story made me want to be his friend because he was way better than what his family thought of him. As for my favorite character in the book is Alastor the demon. He was both serious, sarcastic and even has a touch of humor.

Overall I really like most of the Halloween spooky moments in the book and like how the both Alastor and Prosper interacted with each other throughout the story. I can’t wait to see what happens in the second book.
