Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is this the destiny he had come to find?

To die in a house of secrets, to discover

not his past but his fate: doomed to

spend eternity as one more ghost

haunting the halls of Ravenscliff?

Every kid fears the monsters in the closet — but for Devon March, the monsters are all too real. At fourteen, Devon is sent to live at Ravenscliff, a dark seaside mansion where secrets abound and the dead just won't stay that way. He learns that he is a sorcerer of the Order of the Nightwing, a three-thousand-year-old tradition of mysticism and magic — the roots of which run deep at Ravenscliff. In a house of mysteries, he'll have to decide quickly who is friend and who is foe, because Ravenscliff's worst nightmare — the Madman — is coming back, and he's bringing Hell with him.

Review:

"Not as charming or as breathtakingly inventive as J. K. Rowling's series nor as witty and resilient as the Buffy books, this novel is still well-constructed fun. Less horror than creepy fiction, it features some fine suspense with old-fashioned demon fighting thrown in." Timothy Capehart, VOYA

Review:

"This first book in a new series is a dark, moody, and sometimes frightening tale with many questions and few answers." School Library Journal

Review:

"[H]orror fiction is in short supply for this age group, and although this isn't great, the familiar allusions and melodramatic action (and occasional satire) will help sell it." Booklist

Review:

"Mystery and fantasy fans, as well as reluctant readers, will find this novel difficult to put down. It ends with tantalizing unsolved mysteries, but as Book I in the Ravenscliff series, this one sets up readers for its sequels." Alan Review

Review:

"The terror begins on page one and never stops! This is my kind of book — filled with magic and dozens of frightening surprises." R. L. Stine

Review:

"Sorcerers of the Nightwing is a rich, riveting, and sophisticated read. Readers will be hypnotized by its brew of New England gothic, character-driven suspense, and childhood magic. I'm hungrily awaiting the further adventures of Devon March." Christopher Rice, author of The Snow Garden
