  • Fantastic haunted house tale!

    This was a fantastic haunted house story for the middle-grade set but it should appeal to a wide range of readers. This is the second book in the Small Spaces series but it could be read as a stand-alone despite the fact that events from the first book are discussed. I really enjoyed the spooky feel that this story had and found that I was really eager to see how things would work out. All in all, I thought this was a well-done novel. Ollie, Coco, and Brian are off on another adventure. This time they are headed to a ski resort with Ollie's dad and Coco's mom. There is so much snow that they are the only ones that are able to make it to the resort. Things at the resort are less than ideal because of the storm but they are determined to make the most of it. There is some excitement with the addition of a new guest that knows some of the less than positive history of the resort. I loved the spooky atmosphere of this story. I was worried about these kids anytime they went off by themselves in the resort. Learning the things that happened in the building before it became a ski lodge only added to the creepy feel. Ollie, Coco, and Brian are all great characters and I love their friendship. They really do watch out for each other when it is necessary. I wasn't sure how things would work out but it was nice to know that these kids were in it together. I would recommend this book to others. I started reading this series because I love Katherine Arden's writing and wanted to read more of it. I picked up this book because of how much I enjoyed the first. I found this to be a creepy and atmospheric tale filled with fantastic characters. I can't wait to see what happens to Ollie, Coco, and Brian next!

  • Less creepy, but better than the first!

    It's a good thing I don't already have a fear of ghosts in ski lodges like I did about scarecrows, because I would have had nightmares again! I really appreciated how we just jumped straight into the weird things, since the first book had the whole introduction to the characters it made it a lot quicker and plot focused. I also love the setting of Vermont in both books! It's really the perfect winter spooky read because you just want to get some hot cocoa and a blanket with it, and you don't feel like there are snowy serial killers stalking your house. The ending of the first book was a little rushed, but I think she really fixed that in this one, because even though it was quick, I understood more of *why* they won against the smiling man. On to the third one! Which... is about deep water monsters. Great. I'm more scared of them than scarecrows.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great Spooky Middle Grade

    I loved this book. The friendship between Ollie, Coco and Brian is so sweet. I loved getting to see it. I also loved the spooky stuff. The story was interesting and I was hooked until the end. I would recommend this book.

  • Fun MG series

    The Orphanage + The Forbidden Game + The Shining Coco, Ollie, and Brian’s friendship has grown stronger since their confrontation with The Smiling Man. So much so that Ollie’s dad and Coco’s Mom are taking the trip to stay at a skiing lodge. They get snowed in. While they’re waiting for the snow to let up, they join forces with another guest, a reporter researching the rumored haunting element of the area. What will they find? Loved this book!! The friendship between Ollie, Coco, and Brian is wonderful and helps enforce to kids that sometimes the best friends you can have are completely opposite of you. I love getting the different pov’s and look forward to seeing Brian’s in part 3. I will say that, although I gave both 5-stars, Dead Voices didn’t creep me out at all. I never knew how scary scarecrows were until I read Small Spaces, but nothing like that here, sadly. Buy this for yourself or someone looking for a dark middle grade series. Or, if you’re twisted, get it for someone who grew up being taught by nuns (full disclosure: like moi, but they were some of my faves **shrug**)!

    Thanks for your feedback!
