A coven of witches know of the horrors that transpired near Galaxy Farm and they plan on taking full advantage of the evil residue left behind. All they need are children to help fuel their spell to summon the longarez beast.

Laura and Teresa will have to come together if they are to stop the coven from unleashing an unimaginable evil and save the children from a horrible fate.

I haven’t read any previous adventures about Laura and Theresa, but the beginning of the story find them at each other’s throat due to things that happened in another story.

This was a real middle of the road read for me. It was interesting enough that I followed it through to the end, but there were no “wow” or “cool” moments.

I had a few issues with how Laura was portrayed and some of the things she did. They didn’t sit right with me.

The characters were not as developed as I would have liked with little to no real background.

The ending was sort of slow and a bit anti-climatic, but the pacing of the story was steady.

I might try something else by this author by not right now.

This was a light, simple read.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.
