This is a book for middle grade children, with an age range of 8 to 12 years old. Obviously I’m not a kid anymore and I know my opinion will not be the same as the one of children; even so, the book is interesting and makes you want to know more.

In the first pages of the ARC I got there are reviews of children saying they “couldn’t put it down” and actually, me neither. Since the first chapter it hooks you up with a mysterious vibe full of suspense and action. The book is written without fillers, when it starts to slow down something intense occurs and makes the book fast paced again and keeps it interesting.

Definitely Marcus is the most remarkable character; the book is in his point of view so he appears almost all the time. Something that caught my attention is that Lu and Theo, Marcus’ friends, are supposed to be protagonists too, or that is what the synopsis makes you think, but they actually have a minor role and their scenes slow down the story. It’s not until the last chapters when they have a more important role in the story.

The villain is an interesting entity, it appears since the prologue and all the time it has this sinister and cruel aura. The reader doesn’t know its intention until half of the book, it’s until then we learn who or what it is, and its real intentions. At first it’s just an enigmatic and creepy character.

MacHale has the ability of describing in a way you can actually feel what it’s written, he knows how to create the right mood in each scene. There is a scene with spiders and, believe me, I could feel them walking on my arms.

The finale of the book makes clear that the story will continue. Also, speaking of the ending, I didn’t like it at all. I got the impression that the final battle wasn’t as impressive or dramatic as other confrontations with the Boggin (that’s the name of the villain, and the reason behind the title). I won’t give spoilers, but there is a confrontation scene at Theo’s house, and I think it was better than the final one.

Curse of the Boggin is a light novel due to the audience it’s targeted to, but that doesn’t make it less interesting or enjoyable. If you want to have a good time reading a light supernatural book, I recommend it :) ( )
