This is a spookier story than the other ones I have read in the Tales of Tossledowns series. It is the tale of Gwyndl and her fear of creatures known as Howlergoons. Creatures with claws that jump out at you when you cross Bloodbridge. What she discovers is even scarier than what she had imagined.


I am not exactly a huge fan of horror stories. I mean, when I was little, I was terrified of The Nightmare Before Christmas. So, yeah, not really my thing. But I liked the sci-fi and fantasy edge to it. It reminded me a lot of one of my favorite books–The Host by Stephanie Meyer. Only written for a younger age group. I love a complex science fiction story. :)

The other things I really liked about this book were that the ending was very satisfactory and I also saw how the spinspider and the tomebeetle seemed to become closer friends and less enemies than they have been in the past. It is crazy, but it’s kind of sweet.


Hi. My name is Kara. I mostly read YA books, but I love other books as well. My favorite genre is fantasy. My favorite authors include: L. M. Montgomery, Margaret Peterson Haddix, and Gail Carson Levine. I'm very eclectic and love all different kinds of music. Like Adele, Flyleaf, and Josh Turner. :)
