Trapped in a cellar from a powerful spell, Clementine DeVore was found by a boy named Fisher. Ten years prior in New South Bend, strange and different things began to happen. The towns people became worried and burned Clementine's house down. All grown up now with no memory of the past years, Clementine begins her journey to find out the truth.
I was ecstatic to finally have won a young adult (YA) book from Penguin's First-To-Read program. But to be honest, I'm not really a fan of Ms. Yovanoff's work. I wasnt able to finish the The Replacement duology, so I was hesitant going into this read. At first, I loved the mystery and the characters. The first fifty pages were creepy, enticing and vivid; I couldn't read fast enough. However, as the story progressed I became bored. I kept zoning out, the mystery was dull and slow. I was craving more of the goriness and creepy bewitching stuff.
This cover is one of the most fitting covers I have seen for a YA book.The quality of the picture looks HD. I really adore this cover.
Ultimately, if you've read and enjoyed this author's previous work, this is a great addition. If you have not, I would recommend Fiendish to R.L Stine fans.
