A New Kid In Town. A Demented Gang of Bullies. An Ancient Evil. The City of Crofton Is About To Face Its Worst Nightmare...
Adam and his father, the enigmatic Dr. Alfred Novello, arrive at the small city of Crofton, looking for a fresh start after the death of Adam's mother. But soon, Adam meets a troubled kid named Macs (pronounced Max), who drags Adam into a terrible nightmare of ancient evil.
To make matters worse, Adam and his new friend attract the attention of a vicious gang of bullies who call themselves "The Ghosts", and who want Adam dead!
With his father wallowing in his own grief, Adam and Macs have no one to turn to for help against the evil they are about to face, an evil that has been waiting for centuries to tear Crofton apart...
MY RATING: 3 STARS
Beware the Night is a YA-driven, horror novella perfect for tweens looking to read something a bit on the scary side. The story is mysterious and interesting and will keep the younger audience reading and enjoying. The “monsters” in this story are unique, which is a plus. I also felt the pacing of this story was on-point.
On the technical side, there were a few problems, which is why I had to give Beware the Night 3 stars instead of 4. There seemed to be some occasional missing periods and misspellings (“fate” instead of “fat”). I believe the dialog was a bit off-putting and could have been a bit more realistic if more contractions would have been used, especially within the dialog for Adam and Macs.
Overall, I did find Beware the Night to be an interesting story that I enjoyed reading. I could very well see tweens loving this story.
