THE CHARMED CHILDREN OF ROOKSKILL CASTLE, by Janet Fox

rookskill

The story: There’s an ancient evil lurking at Rookskill Castle, and when Kat and her siblings are sent there to escape the bombs of the London blitz, it just might turn out that they’ve gone out of the frying pan and straight into the fire. Only the magic chatelaine’s keys given to Kat by her great aunt will be of any use in fighting the soul stealer–but will Kat be able to figure out how to use it in time to save them all?

The library lady says: I thought this one had something for everyone: boys, girls, A&A fans, and scary story fans; there’s a hint of steampunk, some downright scary moments, and kids who actually like their siblings and parents, despite the occasional fuss. Don’t be put off by the length–it’s a fast, suspenseful read.
