    7. The Mystery of Drear House is the follow up to The House of Dies Drear The first of the series was a little fun and adventurous, but this one was interesting as well Virginia Hamilton defines the Small and Carr families thoroughly and helps put some closure on the mystery Still a fun read, and I love Underground Railroad stories.

    9. Review to come I have to admit, this was a little harder to get into than I remember House of Dies Drear being, probably because you have to rely quite a bit on reading House of Dies Drear to get into the flow of reading this at first But once I did get into the book, it was smooth sailing, and I was glad to follow Thomas s voice and experiences again I hope to do a thorough analysis of the book in my extended review.

    10. Book Review originally published here iheartreading mini revThis is a great mystery novel for young adults The most interesting part was Drear House itself It s a labyrinth with secret tunnels and hideouts The pace is quite fast, and the main character Thomas is the kind of protagonist kids can easily relate to An intriguing, quick read.

    12. This was the sequel to The House of Dies Drear It picks up 6 months after the prior one ends It still has some mystery in there, and introduces a character you didn t meet in the first one This one was ok too, but sort of a re hash of the first I still liked it.
