LoveReading View on The Creeps

Samuel Johnson and his loyal dog, Boswell, have already saved the world from being overrun by demons – twice.  You would have thought they had done enough, AND they’ves had to put up with a couple of strangely undemonic demons who stayed behind after the last adventure and are living with them at home.  But no, it seems they must take on the forces of evil once again. There are weird things happening in Biddlecombe – statues that move without help, shadows that seem to grow and grow and begin to block out the sky’s light, strange goings on in the town’s big department store, which is theoretically opening as a toy shop.   Something is not quite right (well, many things, really)…

The Creeps Synopsis

After years of neglect, the grand old building that once housed Wreckit & Sons is about to reopen as the greatest toyshop that Biddlecombe has ever seen, and Samuel and his faithful dachshund Boswell are to be guests of honour at the big event. A splendid time will be had by all, as long as they can ignore the sinister statue that keeps moving around the town, the Shadows that are slowly blocking out the stars, the murderous Christmas elves, and the fact that somewhere in Biddlecombe a rotten black heart is beating a rhythm of revenge. A trap has been set. The Earth is doomed. The last hope for humanity lies with one young boy and the girl who's secretly in love with him. Oh, and a dog, two demons, four dwarfs and a very polite monster.

 

This is the third book in the Samuel Johnson vs. the Devil series which began with The Gates and followed by Hell's Bells.
