Book Review: Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #2: The Slither Sisters

Today's review is on The Slither Sisters (Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #2)

This delightful series, for children age 10 and up, is exceptional. The story line is well thought out and it is presented in a fun and entertaining manner. I myself couldn't refrain from chuckling out loud a time or two.

Lovecraft Middle School isn't your ordinary middle school. Built with the remains of the old Tillinghast Mansion, it has become a portal to the "invisible lands." Lands where monsters and demons dwell.

Robert Arthur, along with Glenn Torkells and Karina Ortiz, have just defeated the Gargoyle disguised as Professor Garfield Goyle, but the danger is not over. This time they have to tackle Sarah and Sylvia, who were taken into Tillinghast's Mansion and have returned as demons in disguise.

The Master himself wants to take over Lovecraft and intends to take every student. In order to prevent that from happening, the school's librarian steps up to help and comes up with plan of action that no one sees coming. But will the plan work?

I don't think I have been this enthralled by a children's series since my Nancy Drew days. Only this series is much creepier, and I just love it. I guess I'll have to clear more space on my bookshelves because this series is sure to become a great success.

This second novel in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series begins right where Professor Gargoyle ended.  Seventh-grader Robert Arthur has discovered that two of his classmates are actually sinister snake-women in disguise. Even worse, his new middle school is full of “gates” to a terrifying alternate dimension – a haunted mansion full of strange spirits and monstrous beasts.  For Robert to protect his teachers and classmates, he'll need to return to this haunted dimension with his best friends Glenn and Karina.   Can they uncover the secrets of Lovecraft Middle School before it's too late?

The Slither Sisters features more bizarre beasts, more strange mysteries, and more adventure.  It's perfect for readers ages 10 and up. Best of all, the cover features a state-of-the-art “morphing” photo portrait – so you can personally witness the sisters transforming into their slithering alter egos.  You won't believe your eyes!
