Reviews

'The otherworldly happenings are even more terrifying in Shiver, and the ghosts are more frequent and prominent, which will keep readers on the edge of their seats. In both tales, Nye's prose is chilling and sparse, and works well to build tension as the ghost stories emerge. The ancient house comes alive, and the ghosts' eerie movements and noises will have readers jumping at creeks and bumps in the night. These scary stories are a great addition to any middle-grade collection.'
-- School Library Journal

'This is the long-awaited sequel to Chill ... Readers who enjoyed Chill will be delighted to pick up the story here and new ones will want to go back and read the earlier adventures.'
-- Jane Sandell, The Scotsman

'This will be a great story to read with Junior classes or to encourage 8-12s to read for themselves'
-- Wendy Worley. The School Librarian, Winter 2009

'I think this book was very spooky and exciting... I would give it 5 out of 5.'
-- Freya, James Gillespie's High pupil, Teen Titles
