The author of the New York Times bestselling Goosebumps and Fear Street series uses his knack for creating terror to tap into some very grown up fears in this terrifying horror novel centered on a town in the grip of a sinister revolt.

Travel writer Lea Sutter finds herself on a small island off the coast of South Carolina, at the wrong place at the wrong time, and barely escapes with her life when a freak hurricane cuts through the island. In the storm’s aftermath, she discovers two orphaned boys—twins—and impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys seem amiable and immensely grateful; Lea’s family is not quite so pleased. But no one could anticipate the twins’ true nature—or predict that within a few weeks’ time, Lea’s husband, a controversial child psychologist, will be implicated in two brutal murders.

For the millions of readers who grew up on Goosebumps, and for every fan of deviously inventive horror, this is a “creepy, fun read” (Library Journal) from a beloved master of the genre.

I was super excited to read a new R.L. Stine book. I was obsessed with his books growing up. It was OK. I was a little disappointed, as it wasn't all that great. Interesting premise, but I didn't like it all that much. Not sure I'd recommend it. Read full review
