Horn Book Review

In Ghostly Echoes, a new threat emerged for seer/sleuth R. F. Jackaby: the Dire King. Now, in this final book, the torn veil between the real world and the fairy world of Annwyn releases the Dire King's undead army to wreak havoc on Jackaby's nineteenth-century New England town. With wry humor, Jackaby's assistant, Abigail Rook, once again narrates this satisfying and surprise-filled supernatural mystery. (c) Copyright 2018.
