Up and Coming: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Fans of the strange and dark take note, Librarian M is here to talk about Brenna Yovanoff's latest:

Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

 Release Date: August 14, 2014

Brenna Yovanoff is back with another book to creep you out!

Clementine has been down in the cellar of her family’s burned-out house for ten years. She hasn’t really been living, but she’s not dead either. She’s been in a kind of stasis, waiting for someone to discover her and set her free. One day a group of boys find her and bring her to her aunt’s house. Clementine is grateful to be out of the cellar until weird things start happening around town. Is Clementine a harbinger of evil doings? Maybe it would have been better if she had never been found.

The setting of this book is spooky and strange. Words like fiend, craft, and reckoning are used frequently and the story is woven like a web around the main characters. Yovanoff spins information out slowly as she constructs this eerie world. I recommend reading this book after dark and under the covers with a flashlight.
