After the brilliantly-shocking "A Warlock in Whitby", I wasn't sure if Robin Jarvis could possibly create another hit and cap off the series well. Boy was I in for a shock. "The Whitby Child" is not only longer and more intense than both of its predecessors, it is better than both combined! With new terrifying monsters keeping the story alive, and the arrival of Crozier's Coven at last, this final installment is an excellent excercise in the macabre. With more twists than before, and some nice scenes (as well as a heart-breaking, well-written ending that manages to steer clear of cheese territory), this is a brilliant last book. May Robin Jarvis continue to write forever!
