I think anyone who enjoyed reading the Fablehaven series would enjoy these books as well. I also believe that both girls and boys would like this book, that it is not meant for just one group. - Student Reviewer – Priya 8th Grader on booksinthemiddle.wordpress.com
Read the rest of the review for Nightfall Gardens and The Shadow Garden.
The fantastic blog Fantasy Book Critic has published a glowing review of "Nightfall Gardens."
"A thoroughly creepy and well-nuanced plot that ends on a solid note, Nightfall Gardens is a great MG/YA fantasy debut. For those readers who loved R.L. Stine when they were kids, might find this book very much to their liking. This was a different read for me simply because I’m not usually a reader of this genre but Allen Houston’s storytelling style and imagination have won me over and now I can’t wait to read the sequel The Shadow Gardens."
