    One thought on “Candle Man: The Society of Dread”

    1. Strange things are afoot---again. Bones are vanishing from cemeteries. People are vanishing. And "he" has returned. Theo hardly knows what to make of all of this, but one thing is clear: he must go back into the network of underground tunnels and face a foe more deadly than Dr. Saint.The book starts in a very odd way: Theo is in a cemetery, which is just like the first book, only to see him there you'd think he'd never been to one before. The first book showed him whining and ungrateful at being [...]

    2. Why I read this: I absolutely loved the first book in this series and had to continue on with the next.Plot: With this second book in the series, there are new friends introduced along with new enemies. Theo must now descend below ground to save his friends who have been taken and enslaved by a wicked man whose power lies in destruction. there were some great twists to this book that put the world and history of Candle Man into perspective in a way that I wasn't expecting. I absolutely love the [...]

    3. Like so many other young heroes, Theo finds himself a leader without benefit of training or much knowledge of his own powers. Dr. Saint is gone and Theo is heir to a large mansion which served as a prison for him too long for him to want to spend his time there. Fortunately, he does continue to have the support of the the Society of Unrelenting Vigilance, but he isn't privy to its history or secrets. Too soon he finds himself pushed forward to put an end to the evil that is springing up from wit [...]

    4. I read the first book in this series last year at Scout Camp, and magically it just so happened I read the sequel at this years camp! The characters and setting all flooded back (with the help or surprisingly small back-story(good thing!)) and I was instantly hooked. A great and varied cast list with continous plot hangers at the end of every chapter (which were all surprisingly short), this is a great addition to the Candle Man world, which i can easily imagine being made into a series. (PLEASE [...]

    5. If you've read the first Candleman book, go ahead and read this one too. I found it to be slower paced for the first 3/4 of the book and nothing really interesting happened, but in the last fourth is enough rich information to read for. No spoilers here but if you make it that far, you won't regret it.

    6. The story of a boy with a very lethal and creepy talent and his struggle to do the right thing with them continues in this second book in the series. Loyalities and values are tested, technology and fantasy abound. I look forward to the next installment

    7. Refreshingly original. The protagonist is painfully naive at times, but the story is told in a way that explains that trait, rather than making it annoying or baffling. Neat characters and plot too.

    8. Great follow up story to book one. Theo and his friends go through more adventures. Theo finds out more about his powers and about his family.

    9. A well-done second book, which is all too often an unusual thing. Definitely worth picking up if you at all enjoyed the first.

    10. The character of the candle-man is really starting to show! He is a finally accepting his powers and using the skills he was taught to overcome the evils of the world.
