Hands down, still one of my favorite series. Glad I was able to read them again.
A quick read, reminiscent of Christopher Pike, but updated to present-day. I flew through this well-told story, eager to solve the riddle(s) and understand the meaning(s). Enough creepiness to keep you awake until the end; but, not so much that you can't sleep when it's over.
My first spooky book, and it did get a little spooky back in the day. It really was a lovely series. Nothing too over the top. No love triangles. Just spooky mysteries riddled with witchcraft and friendship.

Overall, these aren't masterpiece books, but they're a really fun read. Plus, they are probably the first more mature books I read when I was younger so there's a bit of familiar comfort in that.
Not bad. Not one of my favorites either. I guessed at the ending pretty early in the story and it seemed like it took a long time to get there. I could have done without all the in depth description of what every detail symbolized in all of the rituals, but when there was action, it was well written. I know several people who really like the series, so I'm likely to keep going with it, keeping in mind that BIFN was her first book.
It isn't a bad book, and it does kind of suck you in, but I really didn't like the main character very much. I especially didn't like her friend that she was trying to save. She was a brat, and you didn't even want to root for her the whole time. In fact, my favorite character was Chad, who wasn't a main character really, and I spent the whole book just hoping he wasn't the crazy stalker. That tells you a lot.
