Read full description of the books:
I thought this was one of the better volumes because it dealt with witchcraft. Of course, there's a twist to it but it still was a pretty cool set up. There was a also a first here in that the "other" teenager involved in the case was a girl. Now, what I did find unusual was how little the guys reacted to her being a girl. These are guys in their early teens, and they basically just treated her like...well, like a guy. There was no romantic tension to speak of. I'd have thought them to either be like "Oh man, it's a girl" or "Oh Man! It's a girl!" but there was none of that. I'm guessing the target audience is too young to notice such things but it stuck out to me.
A good volume for fans of the series for sure.

Sidelights: Carey told Contemporary Authors: "I began writing late; my first articles and stories were published after I was thirty, and I was motivated by money. Money is not a bad motivation. The need to eat keeps us from laziness, and the fact that someone is willing to pay to read what we write assures us that we have indeed written."
"I think that writing should be honest and simple, and it should say something about what it means to be a person. When God is good to us, we write in such a way that the act of reading becomes a pleasure to those who buy our books. This experience doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it is at least as heady as winning the Irish sweepstakes. It makes mere competence seem dull. It is probably also what makes writing a compulsive occupation; some of us are uncomfortable when we are away from our typewriters for any length of time."
"My lifelong ambition, aside from writing, is to finish exploring the American West. This should keep me busy for at least another thirty years, since there is a
