“The voice of wisdom inside me was silent. I had nothing I could say to her that could fix this or make her feel better. But that was okay; she didn’t expect me to help her. sometimes all a person needs is for someone to listen.”
–Monster in My Closet by R.L. Naquin

They find some unexpected help along their journey, but soon Lilli and the others realize that anyone they contact is in danger. As their adventure continues, taking them to Egypt,London, and other dangerous countries, betrayal comes from a person that Lilli was positive they could trust. Will the three kids be able to stop the horrors brought on by the evil Zorav and Bishop Carrington or will they die trying?
I really liked this book and what a quick read it was! It moved quickly and kept me interested through the pages as I read about the various countries they travel to. The book was made more interesting to me by its focus on religious elements of mythology. It was a very interesting read and kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning. I really liked Lilli’s character and her grasp on the things that are really important in life. I didn’t like how their were a couple of things that I didn’t feel were explained as well as they should have been, but overall it was good.
