It's bad enough when Max, Rebecca, Noah, and Theo just think Grandpa Gabe's house is haunted. But then the old movie projector in the library opens a passageway to a world of monsters and creatures made of shadows - a place of secrets and dangers set loose when the sun sets. The only weapons to fight them lie in the land on the other side of the Shadow Door. . . .

I was unprepared for how very gritty this series is. With children (preteens, but still children) as the heroes, I had expected peril but not real violence. Instead, there are depictions of blood, deaths of SIGNIFICANT characters, and a level of darkness to the feel of the story.

That's not to say it isn't compelling or well-written. I read all the volumes the library owns because I wanted to see what happens next. It just may not be suitable for some younger readership, despite its young protagonists and cartoony art style. FYI, if you're thinking about checking it out.
