Gr 4-6-In this sequel to Gustav Gloom and the People Taker (Grosset & Dunlap, 2012), the protagonist and his friend, Fernie, are facing a new and terrible foe named October. He is especially dangerous to Gustav and his family of living shadows because he is a shadow eater. Readers learn more about Gustav and his family, the history of his home, and the dangers facing everyone should October, disguised as a creepy ice-cream salesman, obtain the Nightmare Vault. As Fernie and Gustav move through the Gloom Mansion, more and more truths of Gustav's past are revealed to them, including the fate of his missing parents. Margiotta's illustrations, complete with large emotive eyes, are a delightful addition to the opening of each chapter. The climax is predictable, and there are places where the author spends a great deal of time giving exposition rather than showing action, but the plot is likely to engage reluctant readers with a taste for the strange and unusual.-Wayne R.

About the Author
Adam-Troy Castro has said in interviews that he likes to jump genres and styles, and has therefore refused to ever stay in place long enough to permit the unwanted existence of a creature that could be called a "typical" Adam-Troy Castro story. As a result, his short works range from the wild farce of his "Vossoff and Nimmitz" tales to the grim Nebula nominee, "Of A Sweet Slow Dance In The Wake Of Temporary Dogs." His twenty prior books include a nonfiction analysis of the Harry Potter phenomenon, four Spider-Man adventures, and three novels about his interstellar murder investigator Andrea Cort (among them the winner of the Philip K. Dick award, EMISSARIES FROM THE DEAD). Adam's other award nominations include six Nebulas, two Hugos, and two Stokers. Adam lives in Miami with his wife, Judi, and three insane cats named Uma Furman, Meow Farrow, and Harley Quinn.
