This one is by “The Novel Enthusiast.” I remember she was turned off by how dark parts of book 2 were, although she reviewed it favorably. I contacted her because “Hopper House” isn’t quite as dark, and is often more fun and adventurous, if anything. Also, it departs from the ride/ride/ride model I used in book 1 and 2. There are rides, yes, but Dan’s starting to make new friends and break out of the hole he’s been inhabiting for 20 years.
Have a look, and be sure to thumbs-up 🙂
