    God, I love this series. RTC.

  • Sami

    Another creeptastic middle grade novel from Katherine Arden! Dead Voices takes our clever crew to a haunted ski resort and face-to-face with new enemies and old enemies alike. Ollie, Coco, and Brian's friendship is every bit as layered and complex as a real friend group, and the added mystery of Ollie's watch keeps the story going. This is easily becoming my favorite mystery series and I can't wait for what comes next.

    I have been a fan of Katherine Arden ever since I read The Bear and the Nightingale and fell in love with her magical way of writing. I actually hadn't heard of this amazingly creepy middle grade horror series until I was asked to join in on the blog tour. I of course said yes as soon as I saw that it was written by Arden, and promptly bought the first book on Kindle only to devour it in one day's time because it was so addinctly and scarily good that I couldn't put it down!! Small Spaces was exactly as it says on the front, terrifying and fun! This being said by our beloved Goosebumps author, R.L. Stine had me convinced right away that I would love these books. And sure enough I couldn't get enough, and then on top of that having the opportunity to jump right into Dead Voices as soon as I finished book one was like the cherry on top. I was so excited to get back into this spooky world and see where the adventures of these wonderful characters would take me next.

    These books are amazing and highly addicting. I can see these being perfect for fans of Goosebumps by R.L. Stine, City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab, and even a little bit of The Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snickett. They have all the feels of the spooky and macabre, as well as a great group of characters who stick together at all odds to overcome their fears and get safely out of the danger that they always tend to find themselves in. Hope you all love this as much as I did, I can't wait for book three!!!

    I really loved this one! In this second installment (I believe there will be 4), Olivia, Coco and Brian have to escape from the clutches of (no spoilers) some evil people, but this time, they are stranded in a haunted ski lodge in the middle of a snow storm with very little power (weak generators). In some ways, it wasn't quite as creepy as the first one, but I think that's partly because I knew what to expect. Although the thought of all the dead animals was pretty creepy for me. WHY do people

WHY do people insist on having taxidermy animals around the house?! What I liked more about this book was that the perspective switched between Coco and Olivia, and you were able to find out more about what they were thinking. I also liked that we got a little bit of Olivia's dad and Coco's mom. I'm hoping the next book will feature more of Brian.

    Special thanks to Katherine Arden, NetGalley, and the publishers for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    That was even better than the first book! Creepy as hell. Didn't like a certain twist, 'cause I expected this installment to be more independent and self-developed, but this detail didn't spoil my fun after all. Love Arden's writing style, btw.

    Well hello, I’m delightfully creeped out right now.

    DEAD VOICES reunites us with the trio from SMALL SPACES, Arden’s first in this middle grade fantasy and paranormal horror mystery series. They survived the creepy scarecrows and fall-themed maze, they survived the Smiling Man, and now they are off to vacation at a ski resort during the holidays. But the vacation ends up being less hot chocolates and fun in the snow and more snowstorms and failing heat, hauntings and danger.

But the vacation ends up being less hot chocolates and fun in the snow and more snowstorms and failing heat, hauntings and danger.

    Arden is no stranger to weaving magic with her words and creating a biting, brutal, and unforgiving atmosphere. The Winternight Trilogy still makes me cold to think of it (amongst other things!) and she brings that same talent to this instalment. What I think is actually the coolest (hah) part of this series is each book is set during a season; fall for SMALL SPACES and now winter for DEAD VOICES. It’s wonderfully creative. But onto this story itself.

    If your imagination is overactive during the night, seeing shapes move in shadow and darkness, if you hear voices in the whisper of the wind, feel someone move behind you as your skin breaks into goosebumps, but there’s no one there.. you’ll probably hate this story. In the best way! Because this book really was eerie, really was creepy, and the ghoulish fear of spirits and the unforgiving violence of the cold is right in your face. Sometimes literally.

    Beyond the characters and the seasons, there is connection between book one and two and I was not totally expecting it. But we also see some non-fantastical growth, too, and it was lovely to be back with this trio — and Ollie’s dad, too. Shoutout to awesome parents in fiction!

    I am definitely hoping that Brian will be getting some time front and centre with the upcoming instalment and, based on how this one went, giving Coco some of the focus in addition to Ollie, I would be surprised if that wasn’t the plan anyway.

    Can’t wait for more from this world and this author.

    This paled in comparison to its brilliant predecessor, Small Spaces, but it’s still a cute and entertaining story.

    I had very high expectations for Dead Voices because I LOVED Small Spaces, but where that was richly atmospheric and unique, this felt thin and typical of its genre.

    Atmosphere is what Katherine Arden does best, and while there’s more of that here than in your typical middle grade book, the spooky, hauntingly magical feel of Small Spaces and The Bear and the Nightengale trilogy is a

    Atmosphere is what Katherine Arden does best, and while there’s more of that here than in your typical middle grade book, the spooky, hauntingly magical feel of Small Spaces and The Bear and the Nightengale trilogy is absent here.

    Some of this is just personal preference on setting (give me small town Halloween any day over a ski lodge), but this premise could have worked better than it did had the tone been similar to the first book.

    Additionally, the villains came off as VERY stilted and cartoonish in this one, despite having a common thread with the well drawn, menacing scarecrows from Small Spaces.

    I’m always happy to try anything Arden writes, but I hope to see a return to form in the third book in this series.
