Fun, Fast, Middle Grade Horror
My inner child was hooked from page one! Soon my adventurous inner child joined in, followed by my “all things scary” inner child. We all agree, <b>Brunderfold</b> by Jason M. Burns is a terrific middle grade read that will catch the eye and imagination of readers of all ages who are looking for something fun and a little spooky, too!Was this review helpful?

Aiden has been sent to live with his father, after some trouble he had gotten into and is now the new kid at a small town school, filled with the typical school population, the pretty girls, the bullies, the geeks, etc. He unleashes an evil monster that has been locked away in Locker 13 at his school and if Aiden thought his current life was a nightmare, meeting what lived within Locker 13 certainly put his life in perspective. Brunderfold is the boogeyman in our deepest imagination, he is what goes bump in the night, and he is dangerous, deadly and seemingly unstoppable. When the danger starts hitting too close to home, Aiden knows he must act or Brunderfold’s reign of terror will only get worse. Can he stop Brunderfold with the help of his arch enemy and his only friend? Can the geek, the bully and the new kid really form an alliance that will find a way to destroy Brunderfold or will help come from the past, from a source that will leave Aiden in shock?
<b>Brunderfold is fast, furious and a delight to read! Jason M. Burns has pulled together characters that we can all relate to, they have distinct personalities, easily similar to someone we may have known in school and given us new heroes fighting against evil! Aiden is often poised beyond his years, although his past is shrouded in mystery until midway through this tale when his own inner turmoil becomes more understandable, as does the relationship with his father. There are characters that do an about face and watching their growth and change truly adds to the story! (Okay, that was my inner adult talking.)
Mr. Burns’ writing style is fresh, up-tempo and his use of phrases and comparative references are definitely attention-getting and helped make this the great piece it is. I would mention the lessons learned and the understandings gained, but those were like bonus points for a tale that was already a huge success in my “book.”
Would “we” recommend it for younger readers? Definitely!
