    This is a YA horror, a posthumously finished novel of the Johnny Dixon Series A fun 1 day read There s not much depth in this single novel Perhaps there isin the series as a whole It reads rather like a Golden Age horror which I find a plus One likes the kids and the professors.

    Here, John Bellairs meets Brad Strickland halfway, with Strickland taking over the series from this point onward Their styles are extremely similar, and it s hard to tell where the one ends and the other begins As a Johnny Dixon novel, this one holds up fairly well there are a few differenc...

    I read the book aloud to my son to the end of Chapter 9 He picked it up himself and finished it off, because he didn t want to wait for me The writing is pleasantly complex, withdetails than seems to be the norm today Challenging vocabulary also offers opportunities for vocabulary building without...

    As with The Hand of the Necromancer , I really enjoyed Strickland s handling of the Bellairs characters He brings out the crankiness of the professor and even uses the professor s proclivity for ranting as a plot point near the end of the book , and he also explores some of the secondary characters, like Charles Coote and Johnny s dad, who provides a thoughtful little sub plot for Johnny Strickland is a pro at preserving the world created by Bellairs while imagining new details of his own T As with The Hand of the Necromancer , I really enjoyed Strickland s handling of the Bellairs characters He brings out the crankiness of the professor and even uses the professor s proclivity for ranting as a plot point near the end of the book , and he also explores some of the secondary characters, like Charles Coote and Johnny s dad, who provides a thoughtful little sub plot for Johnny Strickland is a pro at preserving the world created by Bellairs while imagining new details of his own The story itself iswell thought out than any of the previous Bellairs books It sets up the surprises nicely, and careful readers will be able to piece together the final weapon that saves the day.There is one little touch I especially liked that may be a bit of a spoiler Note that when Todd Lamort, who has been spending the night at Charles Coote s house, tells the professor that he couldn t sleep in the bedroom because the cons...

    Enjoyed this but it had a muchmodern feel that the others is that Strickland s influence Also, I always thought Fergie lived in a poorer part of town but In this book it is described as snooty.

  7. Becky says:

    Not terrible, writing is competent, some parts quite suspenseful, but middle lag really got to me Might go back to it, might not.

    Although Johnny Dixon is my favorite of Bellairs protagonists, the evil voodoo flavor of this novel doesn t really do him justice The zombie is a pretty lackluster element, and the evil voodoo angle is troubling in its characterization of indigenous religions Strickland takes pains to establish that this particular brand of voodoo is evil because it is in the service of a fascist dictator, but it doesn t quite lift the feeling of slightly racist cliche Kudos to Strickland, however, for dan Although Johnny Dixon is my favorite of Bellairs protagonists, the evil voodoo flavor of this novel doesn t really do him justice The zombie is a pretty lackluster element, and the evil voodoo angle is troubling in its characterization of indigenous religions Strickland takes pains to establish that this particular brand of voodoo is evil because it is in th...
