"Move over, Neil Gaiman’s CORALINE and THE GRAVEYARD BOOK … make room, Lemony Snicket’s A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS … you’ve got company and competition for shelf space!" -- THE HORROR FICTION REVIEW"WOW! What an absolutely horrible book (horrible meaning fantastic!) ... This book was laugh out loud funny. I loved when Mom accidentally turned people to stone. Dad's crazy attempts at running a pizza store were just hysterical." -- KIDS 'N' BOOKS "This is the perfect book to be read aloud, read at night under the covers or simply devoured in one sitting. Robert Gray’s Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks simply shines with all of its fun creepiness, compelling characters and stellar writing. A MUST read for any MG fan!" -- WORD SPELUNKING "Eve Hallows is highly imaginative without being too complex for its target audience. Fall in love with Eve, her friends and her family of adorable monsters. Lose yourself in a light read that will remind you of those days when your English teacher just want you to read something, anything. This book is it. The one that you wish you read when you were in grade school." -- JOYOUS READS "Overall, this book was fantastic. It presents an admirable role model as well as a strong family unit which will benefit young readers. When so many books right now have presented teens in a not-so-flattering light, it is so wonderful to find a book like this one." -- BOOK COVER JUSTICE
EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHADOWS (BOOK 2) Ever since encountering The Source and its minions on Halloween, Eve Hallows has found life surprisingly quiet … not to mention adorably boring! So when Dad receives a Ouija message that she must return to Gravesville, Eve couldn't be happier—at least until she discovers the Director of URNS, also known as the Grim Reaper, has a special job for Eve … one that will lead her to New York City and to the true identity of The Source.With The Book of Shrieks offering zero help and a new URNS agent driving the school boys—and Eve!—crazy, Eve's beginning to realize this whole saving-the-world nonsense isn't what it's cracked up to be.All this and she still has to find The Book of Shadows....Praise for Eve Hallows and the Book of Shadows: "This book was perfectly horrible! Horrible meaning amazingly awesome, of course. Eve's world once again sucked me in and would not let go until this part of Eve's story was finished" -- LILI LOST IN A BOOK "This is a perfect combination of YA, Horror, Paranormal and Fun!" -- BOOK LOVERS PARADISE "I love love love Eve. She's a strong, awesome, female character that I would be delighted to recommend to any little girl. (No sexism at play here, boys will love this book too!)" — MUST READ FASTER "I absolutely love this series and cannot wait to keep reading the fun adventures of Eve Hallows. Mr Gray has such a fantastic style of writing and his books are such fascinating tales, that everybody should read them for the fun factor. The topsy turvy lingo, adorable creatures and imaginative Gravesville, make one horrible book." — TURNER'S ANTICS
Here is an interview with Robert Gray
The idea for the Nightmare Series came about five years ago when my daughter asked me to write her a story. Her requirements were that the main character had to be a girl, and the story must have lots of monsters. With that in mind, I created Eve Hallows, a human teenage girl who lives with her adopted monster family in a world called Gravesville.
Coming up with the storyline was a little bit trickier, mostly because I had no clue what problem I wanted my hero to solve. I began by writing random scenes until I got to know my main characters really well. After that, I found the story I wanted to tell, which later became EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHRIEKS.
Originally, I planned to write the one book, and then switch back to an adult novel I'd been tinkering with. But it turned out that Eve, her family, and her strange world were just too big for one story. Now, five years later, I'm writing the fourth and final book in the series. And let me tell you, it's been so much fun living in this world and spending time with all of these quirky characters.
