by Michael F. Stewart 
Publication date: May 18th 2017
Genres: Horror, Middle-Grade

Reaching for her dream, Limpy unleashes a cute, fluffy, NIGHTMARE …

Keep in a cold, dark place. That’s what’s written like some ancient law on every bag of potatoes the family farms. And it’s where Limpy fears she will always remain.

It’s also carved on a box of spheres she discovers in the cellar. Spheres that hatch.

Cute at first, the creatures begin to grow. Then the chickens disappear. The cat is hunted. And something sets the barn ablaze. To survive, Limpy will need to face her greatest fear. The whole family will. Or they may end up in a cold, dark place indeed.

MY THOUGHTS: This is so not my normal kind of read ... lately that is such a great moment in my life. I had a lady good camping buddy ask me... WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF BOOK TO READ? To be honest ... I usually would pick mystery, something that makes me think or makes me wonder who did it? Exercises my brain, so to speak. This was such a great read. If you wish to see my full review check Goodreads & Amazon ... but in short and right to the point ... would I recommend this read ... heck yeah!! Is it going to be a light not dark read. Nope. But it is so creative and I love an author who goes there and give ya a creative ride. Well done Michael. AWESOME! Thank you for stopping in today. Be Well & Be Blessed!! ( ;
