Once again, Caitlin Kittredge delivers. The Nightmare Garden is a wonderfully dark sequel to The Iron Thorn & further proof that she has conquered the YA market. I read it in a 2-day marathon. Could not put it down. Lovecraft, steampunk, horror & fantasy fans rejoice--this is the best YA series being written today!!!

Even Better Than The Iron Thorn
I loved The Iron Thorn and have anxiously awaited the next book in the series. While I recommend either re-reading book one or at least refreshing your memory a little before starting this one, I thought Caitlin did a nice job of building upon the world and characters begun in The Iron Thorn.Was this review helpful?

The Nightmare Garden is dark, fast-paced, complex, and riveting. Aoife hasn't changed a whole lot since book one, but everyone else has grown quite a bit. I love the added world building in the mists and the arctic--so real and vivid. I found myself riding an emotional roller coaster: at times angry, sometimes frustrated or apprehensive, sometimes hopeful, and at one point absolutely heartbroken.
The Nightmare Garden is an excellent sequel--even better than The Iron Thorn!! So, so good! I can't wait to see where Caitlin takes us in book 3.
