Title: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding (The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding #1)
Author: Alexandra Bracken
ARC received through NetGalley.
This was such a fun read! It’s middle grade, but I totally enjoyed it nonetheless and I really think readers of all ages will enjoy it. The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding is the perfect read for the fall. The story features witches, demons, Salem, curses, pumpkins, and other magical creatures that definitely put me in the mood for Halloween!
The story is very well written; it’s creepy and mysterious, but light-hearted and humorous at the same time, which can be hard to execute but Bracken does it perfectly. It features the perfect cast of characters, and I loved both the main character, Prosper, and his inner monologues with Alastor, the fiend.
The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, but I really enjoyed this and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel!
