“A cute, action packed ghost story! Geared for middle grades, but fun for all ages. Age appropriate spookiness.
Great characters, a good voice and well flowing story. A great little Halloween read.”

“Lilac Skully and the Haunted House is so much fun. Lilac is a really likeable character. She reminds me some of Serafina from Serafina and the Black Cloak, because she doesn’t let her fear stand in her way. She’s plucky and tenacious and utterly adorable.

And Lilac Skully is funny. Not in the ha-ha, that’s a funny story way, but in the tongue-in-cheek way that only adults will pick up on.

As for the story, the ghosts are great. The action is great. The setting is great. It’s short enough to read in one sitting, but good enough to spread out over several, if that’s your thing.“

“This book was such a hoot! I loved every page, and it was so much fun to tag along with nine-year-old Lilac as she overcomes fears and defends those she loves.

I recommend this book to any and all who love spooky stories, ghosts, haunted houses, or middle grade books in general!”

“I enjoyed reading Lilac Skully And The Haunted House! It’s a short, sweet spooky book. The ending will leave you wanting more.

I love Lilac’s character and how she overcomes her fear. She’s a courageous and adventurous girl that’s nine and three quarters. I found her age to be cute probably because it reminded me of the platform in Harry Potter.

I recommend this not just for middle grade readers but for adults too.
