Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Canada's response to R.L. Stine is the "Northern Frights" series, and Slade's entry should give Stine a run for his money. Teenage twins Sarah and Michael arrive in the wilds of Manitoba to vacation with their Icelandic grandfather. His stories based on the old Nordic legends are scary enough in themselves, but when the "draugr" (an Icelandic zombie) he describes comes to call, the kids find themselves dealing with life-threatening situations. This is a competent contender in the fright/horror genre.
School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-Sarah, Michael, and Angie are spending the summer with their grandfather in Gimli, Manitoba. While walking in the nearby woods, they encounter a ghost child who warns them of danger. That night, the teens awaken to the sound of shots, screaming, and shattering glass, and discover that Grandpa has been dragged away by a powerful creature. While investigating his disappearance, the cousins find that he is the victim of Kar, a draugr or undead man who is carrying on a family feud that began in Iceland over 70 years ago. When Angie and Michael also vanish, Sarah must fight Kar alone. The novel begins vividly with Grandpa telling the kids a scary story. His humor and playful nature make him an engaging character but he only appears in the first third of the book and briefly at the end. The teen characters are not developed enough for readers to see them as individuals and become involved with their struggle. Sarah's psychic abilities and her spiritual link to her ancestors, who ultimately help her fight the draugr, are hinted at but not fully explored. The action is fast-paced but the plot becomes repetitive. Although this is better than much of the series fare being published, Bruce Coville's many books and Paul Jennings's Uncanny! (1991) and Unreal! (1993, both Puffin) are more enjoyable reads.-Jinder Johal, Richmond Public Library, B.C. Canada
