For any small town a traveling carnival is a huge event. This traveling carnival is a little different because not everyone will survive this one. This carnival's Castle Of Horrors is the real deal. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves. They're all here and waiting for the unsuspecting townspeople. When JD Cole and the other kids from the local high school entered the castle they thought it would be fun, instead they have to count on each other to survive.
Carnival Of Fear by J.G. Faherty is the type of book that to me shouts: "Read Me Now!" Monsters, a traveling carnival and a bunch of teenagers who can't get along, what's not to like? This book was really a mixed bag though, it kind of felt like a YA novel but with more violence. It has its moments though, I liked the idea that all these kids from different social backgrounds had to work together to survive and because of this they grew and changed. On the bad side there was so much going on in this book it bordered on ridiculous. If you can suspend your disbelief though this is a fun book.
