Book Review: Candle Man: The Society of Dread

Candle Man: The Society of Dread
Candle Man: The Society of Dread by Glenn Dakin

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Theo is officially the new Candle Man, and with that power comes responsibilities that Theo doesn’t want. But the police are dragging him into an investigation of the underground tunnels, and when Chloe is kidnapped by mysterious creatures, Theo has to use his power as the Candle Man to rescue her and bring peace to the underground. Theo will fight alongside terrible allies, and some strange people come out of the shadows.

Not really impressed with this book. I got bored towards the end, what with all the monster fights and gooey slime stuff. The plot moves along pretty well. There are many interesting and weird characters. I do like the main character, Theo, and enjoy seeing his awkward attempts to make friends. But it feels like the same plot from the previous book.
