Genre: Horror / Paranormal
Synopsis: #EvilLibrarian He’s young. He’s hot. He’s also evil. He’s… the librarian.
When Cynthia Rothschild’s best friend, Annie, falls head over heels for the new high-school librarian, Cyn can totally see why. He’s really young and super cute and thinks Annie would make an excellent library monitor. But after meeting Mr. Gabriel, Cyn realizes something isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the creepy look in the librarian’s eyes, or the weird feeling Cyn gets whenever she’s around him. Before long Cyn realizes that Mr. Gabriel is, in fact… a demon.
Now, in addition to saving the school musical from technical disaster and trying not to make a fool of herself with her own hopeless crush, Cyn has to save her best friend from the clutches of the evil librarian, who also seems to be slowly sucking the life force out of the entire student body!
From best-selling author Michelle Knudsen, here is the perfect novel for teens who like their horror served up with a bit of romance, plenty of humour, and some pretty hot guys (of both the good and evil variety).
Mini review: I pretty much loved Evil Librarian from the first page. Why? Because the writing is engaging and funny but most of all – Cynthia. Cyn for short. She is the ideal narrator. Cyn provides an ongoing commentary on everything around her and there will be times you’ll struggle not to laugh out loud.
Michelle Knudsen has a great balance between the danger Annie is in and the fact that Cyn still has a musical to be technical director for. Add to this that the plot isn’t predictable, great characters (not just Cyn) plus the writing, pacing and have I mentioned the humour yet? 🙂
In short Evil Librarian is a highly entertaining, witty, brilliant read. So go read it.
