Night creatures prowl the town after dark. Ailis and Na’ya are young weirns, witches who have connected astrals. But they still have to go to school, taking a shortcut through the creepy woods. Then Na’ya’s younger brother D’esh goes missing–and his disappearance seems to be connected to the old house in the woods. Can Ailis and her friends defeat an ancient evil before it’s too late? From the author of the Berrybrook Middle School books Awkward, Brave and Crush.
Victoria S. says: “The Weirn Books, Vol. 1 has amazing illustrations. They make the cartoons look real. Like the grandmother. She is very old, and I can tell by the wrinkles on her face. In cartoon books, that is not used very often, so that is an illustration I really enjoyed.
“The characters are like monsters. Like Ross. He is a werewolf. And Ailis has a crush on him, which is pointed out in the first part of the book, when Jasper broke her window and she had to use a magic seal to fix her window.
“There are also like little demons that help with magic. The demons are like guardians.
“Some supernatural things are happening around town. The source of the supernatural things happening is a boarding school under the school. I recommend this book for readers who like spooky comics.”
