The Nighthouse Keeper (Blight Harbor) (Hardcover)
This is the portal fantasy (? or horror?) for all you spooky fae cryptid kids (and adults). Evie and the denizens of Blight Harbor are on the trail of missing ghosts. It's just poor luck that Evie has to open another creepy door (or three) to help her friends. Perfect for the cozy/soft goth in you. I only had to check my heart rate twice, so it's not too scary, with strong Ghibli vibes. And if you didn't read THE CLACKITY it's not a problem, except that you'll want to make sure it's on hand once you finish NIGHTHOUSE KEEPER because it's just as good! I read it in just one sitting!— From Jessica's Picks!
Evie Von Rathe has been home for only a few weeks from her adventure in the strange world of seven houses when Blight Harbor’s beloved ghosts begin to disappear. Did they leave without saying goodbye, or has something gone horribly wrong? Soon Evie is invited to a mysterious council meeting, where she learns about the Dark Sun Side and a terrible secret.
Yes, the ghosts have gone missing. And that means serious trouble.
With the help of an eleven-year-old (or 111-year-old, but who’s counting) ghost named Lark, trusty Bird, and a plump ghost spider, Evie must find a way to defeat the vicious Nighthouse Keeper responsible for the missing ghosts, save her otherworldly friends, and find her way home from the Dark Sun Side before she’s trapped there forever.
— BCCB, Starred Review
“Senf’s nightmarish, well-imagined supernatural landscape is original and compelling. . . . More than just a battle between good and supernatural evil, this story shows the ultimate power of empathy and tenacity. Readers will be left both satisfied by the ending and wanting more. . . . Deliciously dark and gripping.”
