Lately I’ve been saying it often, but I really need to sit down and read some more middle grade books. I’ve been reading a lot of romance lately. Nothing wrong with that of course, but I need to change it up this autumn. Today is my stop on the Ravefall book tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours. This seems to be one I should add to my TBR soon. Keep on reading to find out more about this book!
Ravenfall by Kalyn Josephson
Genre: Middle Grade Dark Fantasy
Publishing Date: August 30, 2022
One magical inn, two kids with supernatural powers, and an ancient Celtic creature trying to destroy their world by Halloween night…
Halloweentown meets Supernatural in this spooky middle-grade series from the acclaimed author of the Storm Crow duology!
Thirteen-year-old Annabella Ballinkay has never been normal, even by her psychic family’s standards. Every generation uses their abilities to help run the Ravenfall Inn, a sprawling, magical B&B at the crossroads of the human world and the Otherworld. But it’s hard to contribute when your only power is foreseeing death.
So when fourteen-year-old Colin Pierce arrives at Ravenfall searching for his missing older brother and the supernatural creature who killed their parents, Anna jumps at the chance to help. But the mysteries tied to Colin go much deeper than either of them expects. . . .
As the two team up to find answers, they unearth Colin’s family’s secret past and discover that Colin has powers beyond his imagination. And now the supernatural creature, one with eerie origins in Celtic mythology, is coming after him. If Anna and Colin can’t stop the creature by Halloween night, the veil to the Otherworld could be ripped open—which would spell destruction for their world as they know it.

About the Author
Kalyn Josephson currently works as a Technical Writer in the tech industry, which leaves room for too many bad puns about technically being a writer. Though she grew up in San Luis Obispo, California, she graduated from Santa Clara University with degrees in Biology and English (Creative Writing). Currently, she lives in the Bay Area with two black cats (who are more like a tiny dragon and an ever tinier owl). THE STORM CROW duology is out now.
Seeing how this book is pitched as Halloweentown meets Supernatural I may just have to add it to my October TBR. What spooky middle grade books do you love? Let me know in the comments. I’m always looking for new recommendations.
