Before long, Iris begins to come out of her shell. She and Vi and Eric do everything together: ride their bicycles, go to the drive-in, meet at their clubhouse in secret to hunt monsters. Because, as Vi explains, monsters are everywhere.

READ MY BOOK REVIEW
Jennifer McMahon (to me) is the female equivalent to Stephen King. I know that’s a big thing to say and really, can anyone live up to the master? I think yes, they can, and McMahon is one of those people.
The Children on the Hill is a spooky book. Not because there are ghosts hiding in the shadows or demons going after the innocent but because the monsters in this book are REAL and they could easily be someone we know. This is a darker read, one that sends chills up and down readers spines, and it’s also a story that is easy to get lost in because we all have a little monster inside of us. It’s easy to relate to these characters and sympathize with them especially considering what has happened to them in that Inn. Not only that, but I believe there is some truth behind this one as well and the things that happened within these pages easily could have happened in the past. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you read this one.
Overall, this is another solid book by McMahon! I enjoyed her take on the original Frankenstein tale and feel like it’s perfectly fitting for our time. I definitely recommend this one along with her backlist because she has written some of my favorite books!
