That was exactly what I needed to get out of my reading slump. The perfect combo of skin-crawling horror and skillfully-placed comic relief. Also... The dog!!! Full review to come.

Sam returns to her family home in North Carolina and bad things begin happening almost immediately. Sam's first "greeter" waiting to welcome her home is a vulture perched on the mailbox. It's watching the house like any good "watchdog" would. Sam hardly recognizes her mother. She's lost so much weight and is unusually anxious, even fearful, about something. The house feels and looks strange. The brightly colored walls of before are now painted a dull white and old decorations from her late grandmother time are displayed all over the house. Sam is worried... but she is determined to find out what is the cause of all this strangeness that now surrounds the house. As a biologist I had to chuckle at Sam’s nerdy opinion on insects and arthropods. It added the balance that was badly needed to offset the dark secrets that she eventually discovers. Sam’s humor also provided a realistic commentary on racism and generational conflict in the "old south".... not bad but rather comical. The main problem with this story and what lost it a half star, is that the main plot twist is glaringly obvious, way to early...almost from the start of the story. Sam herself is also too oblivious to all the glaring clues. Nevertheless, this was a really good story.... especially if you are a horror fan. Sam’s thoughts were interesting and revealing as she uses her scientific training to try to "make rational the irrational". The final part of the book contains enough gory detail to make any horror lover squirm. The final conflict could have lasted a bit longer, especially when it had had such a huge buildup for about 75% of the story. Still, I had a great journey with it.… (més)

This high fantasy novel is quirky and fun. I would recommend it for younger teens and people looking for YA books without romance.

Ten-year-old Rosa Mandolini lives with her extended family at their studio. Nearly all of her family members are artists who create illuminations: magical artworks that bestow a spell where they are mounted, whether that is keeping mice out of a pantry or purifying the city's water. Rosa dreams of becoming an illuminator herself someday, though she's not quite there yet. While searching the basement for a stuffed armadillo, she comes across a mysterious box with a powerful illumination on the lid, one that makes her want to stay away from the box. What is the mysterious box hiding, and can she figure out how to open it?

Another delightful Kingfisher story. This one I would class as juvenile fiction, since both the age of the main character and the subject matter are suited to all ages. I got strong Magicians of Caprona vibes from the setting and characters. I did feel like the pacing dragged a bit in the middle, but since I listened to the audiobook, this may just have been a result of my fragmented listening time and not the book itself. Fans of this author, and especially those of her juvenile works, will want to check this one out.
