A young adult horror story with significant Lovecraftian influence, Splinters deals with how ordinary human resistors must sacrifice the normal lives they could have tried to live in favor of fighting for all humankind Under most circumstances, Ben and Mina would never have had reason to speak to each other; he's an easy-going people person with a healthy skepticism about the paranormal, and she's a dangerously obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal. But the small town of Prospero, California, has no ordinary circumstances to offer. In order to uncover a plot set by the seemingly innocent but definitely shapeshifting monsters that look like friends, family, and neighbors, the two stark opposites must both find ways to put aside their differences and learn to trust each other.show more

Review quote

"A snapping, crackling, popping homage to classic horror that alludes to no optimistic resolutionall the more reason for a series." Kirkus Reviews "Indeed, the balance of horror and humor here has a very X-Files feel about it, with our two heroes engaging in amusingly clever, whip-smart dialogue as they do battle with some genuinely terrifying Splinters, the descriptions of which will have fans of monster films utterly enthralled ... A promising series opener, this will satisfy those readers who like their scary stories to be as clever as they are chilling." KQG, the Bulletin of The Center for Children' Books "The husband-and-wife writing team of Tichenell and Carter offers readers... some genuinely disturbing human and creature Splinters and provide a few welcome touches of humor." VOYA magazine "... Splinters really hits its stride. The cold war boils over. The stakes are high. The action is intense." Washington Independent Review of Booksshow more
