The fourth thrilling book in this darkly funny, horror series Darren Shan called 'deliciously nightmarish'. The first book, Mr Mumbles, is shortlisted for the Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children's Books Kyle wakes up in hospital -- which is strange, because he doesn't remember being ill. And that's not all. He's also deliriously flitting in and out of the Darkest Corners, and in the shadow version of the hospital the surfaces aren't clean, and the sharp instruments aren't used for healing. It's Kyle's most terrifying experience yet, and it's about to get much, much worse. The doctor will see him now! The fourth installment of this darkly comic horror series.My Thoughts
Even within a couple of pages of Doc Mortis I knew that I would like reading this book. And I did. I really enjoyed it. At first I didn't think it'll be my type of book as it's mainly aimed at children but boy was I wrong. Doc Mortis is without doubt for everyone and anyone over 9.
Doc Mortis continues where it's left off in the previous book in the series, The Crowmaster. Kyle, the protagonist, is not in a very pretty situation having had to deal with another Invisible Fiend, and a whole load of other problems. Things just keep getting worse though the book keeps getting better and better.
Doc Mortis takes you on one horrifying yet thrilling rollacoster. It's very creepy and the imagination in it is just amazing. I have to give it to Hutchison, he sure knows how to keep us readers on our toes. Everything about this book is just wow. And oh did I mention the cover is also very awesome. It totally goes with all the other books in the series. Very spooky indeed.
I really enjoyed reading this book! I can't wait to see what the other books have in store for us. I can't wait to read the next book either! I thoroughly recommend Doc Mortis (:
