Unless you are brand new to Clues and Reviews, you know how much I adore Ania Ahlborn. Her writing is smart, chilling and downright addicting.  In honour of her new book, The Devil Crept In, releasing TODAY, I had the opportunity to ask Ania Ahlborn some questions.

In case you missed it, I read The Devil Crept In late last year and LOVED IT! I think it was my favourite Ania Ahlborn, to date.   You can check out my review here.

The novel follows a young boy, Stevie, whose best friend (and cousin), Jude, goes missing. Sick with worry at the loss of his only friend, Stevie begins his own search for what happened to Jude when he went into the woods. Deer Valley, the town where the boys reside, is no stranger to tragedy; a little boy went missing (and was murdered) years ago and animals in the town go missing often. Stevie continues his search and finds out that whatever is in the woods is a lot more sinister than he could even imagine. And when Jude shows up back in town, seemingly unharmed, Stevie realizes that this Jude is not Jude. Whatever evil lurks in the woods seems to have crept in.  Super creepy right?!

Super creepy right?!

 The Devil Crept In had a little bit of everything, for every reader. It contains some elements of every genre (supernatural, horror, thriller, mystery) and has such multi-dimensional characters. I truly became invested in each storyline.  I have been recommending this book to everyone and anyone. I am already naming this one as one of my favourite releases of 2017!
