Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell
Shiverton Hall. It would be all too easy to jump to the lazy comparison of Hogwarts and Harry Potter, but that’s like saying all school-based stories are the same. Grange Hill this isn’t. Here, Emerald Fennell delivers her second slice of fearsome storytelling, as Arthur Bannister returns to Shiverton Hall for a second term.

Book review: Through Dead Eyes (Chris Priestley)

Book review: Through Dead Eyes (Chris Priestley)
Chris Priestley has a great track record in the horror genre, having released a number of Tales Of Terror books and Mister Creecher for young readers. His latest entry, Through Dead Eyes, takes the tale of a young boy Alex who is struggling with the separation of his parents, and places it in Amsterdam – a city so bright and pleasant on the surface, but with an undertone of something more sinister. It’s easy for anyone to relate to that...
