{Synopsis} – Cleo and Evan have a secret. A collection of books so dangerous they are locked up tight. A friend has vanished inside the pages of one of them. It’s up to them to find the key that will set her free.


On a dark and stormy night, Cleo and Evan are haunted by a disaster. Evan has been bitten by a werewolf! If they can’t find the cure — and the right key — before the full moon rises, he’ll be stuck prowling the pages of this ghost story for good!

{My thoughts} – Evan And Cleo get to go on yet another dangerous adventure thanks to the key they’d received in the last book. In this story Evan is a werewolf and he and Cleo have to figure out a way to stop the werewolves from destroying the village that they are living in. They are friends with a boy named Francis that offers to help them try and put an end to the curse. He says they can do this by using his father’s research notes. The three of them set out to gather the ingredients needed to create a potion that is suppose to cure the sickness that makes individuals werewolves.

While they are on their journey they make some unusual allies. Those allies prove to be very helpful near the end of their adventure.

Will they be able to get all the ingredients needed to create the cure? Will they be able to find the next key needed in order to go into the next story? Will they ever be able to mutually work with the new librarian in their quest to save their old librarian?

I recommend this book for any young reader that wants to go on an adventure. It’s an added bonus if they enjoy reading stories about werewolves and ghosts. This story helped to fill in some missing gaps in the storyline that were much needed. It also helped me as a reader to better understand the storyline as well as the character’s roles within the series.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
