Only the bravest detectives can detain a demon: send for supernatural investigators Billy Flint and Charley Steel!

Review:

I’ll write a general review for this duology. The S.C.R.E.A.M. series is a middle grade historical fiction featuring a main character with a disability, lots of action and the supernatural touch that I love in a book.

I found the first book casually, searching for “mummy” books on Amazon. I’m really happy to have found it and to have read it, it’s a really underrated series, but look at the amazing covers!! Aren’t they great? Have you seen the detail on the cover of Carnival of monsters? Isn’t funny? I laughed when I saw it!

As I said, this series features a main character with a disability: as you can see from the covers, Charley Steel, the female MC, is on a wheelchair, but this certainly doesn’t stop her from being intelligent, wise and incredibily brave, and I know children will love her, along with Billy, the boy with a troubled family and some paranormal powers.

Both of the books are really intense and historically interesting, the second one (Carnival of monsters) is a little darker than the first, because includes children abduction and evil demons, just to let you know.

My only regret with these books is that I want to know more about the S.C.R.E.A.M. department, how has begun for example and also that this is a duology (for now), because I want to read more books with Charley and Billy!!
