1 out of 5


Six children are the first to start changing into something not human, and no one knows why. However, all of them are drawn to Coldharbour, and they can hear a roar. What is making the roar? And how will they be able to fight it?

First, what was I thinking when I thought I should re-read this in order to make a better review?!

Okay, my feelings haven’t really changed from the first time I read it.

I’ll summarize since I don’t want to think that much about this book. Things I didn’t like:

  • This book is very short. You can finish it rather quickly, if you even finish it.
  • This book is not that well thought out. Too many plot holes and not that many details.
  • Descriptions, wording, events, etc are all very choppy and strange.
  • Too much like a junior fiction book than a young adult one.
  • Personalities of the characters are not that well developed. Also, they are very boring. ~_~

And there isn’t anything I liked about the book. :(

They definitely aren’t worth reading unless you are really, really bored.

Where I Got It:

Checked out from the library.
