by Katherine Arden (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2019); audiobook read by Renee Dorian (Listening Library, 2019)
Arden pitches the fright level just about right for MG dark fiction. This sequel to Small Spaces is told mainly from Coco’s perspective, though with enough from Ollie’s that it seems a bit too omniscient. Brian’s side-lining also feels a tad unnatural.
