Recensioner

Well, this was a lot more horrorizing (to use a word invented by my grandson) than I expected, based on other Bellairs books I've read. And using voudon as the entire plot, background, and everything of the book is a pretty bold move. I don't know if the authors actually did any research, I certainly have not, but when you're taking an actual religion and/or cultural phenomenon that's not your own, it's good to put in an author's note to enable your readers to know. Is this purely fantasy (in which case a disclaimer would be courteous) or is there any grain of truth? One of the things I have always liked about Bellairs is that he gets Catholicism and its appurtenances right, unlike (for example) Stoker. Not sure he's getting voudon right at all.

Great Edward Gorey frontispiece! I'm so glad that he stuck with the series for so long.

Things start to go missing on the island... things are getting stranger and the group has to cope.

This book continues on with the epic adventures the teens face on the island. There's a bit more action to spice things up. This would have been the perfect climax for the series, but there's a ton more books.

Three out of five stars.
