The Lovereading4Kids comment
A thrilling urban debut teen novel from the author of the hugely successful Bryant & May crime novels for adults. Creepy and scary by turns Hellion will have you looking over your shoulder long after you’ve read the final page for there is something creeping unnoticed that’s sucking life out of anything it meets. With lives at risk Red Hellion and Max set out to find the whereabouts of Max’s father who has disappeared in mysterious circumstances but the terrible legend of Medusa threatens to engulf them in even greater danger almost before they even begin their investigations.
Hellion: The Curse of Snakes by Christopher Fowler
'Something had been released into the night streets. It moved unnoticed and sucked the life from people. It caused slow painful death, but even those who could sense its presence were too scared to admit it was there. And now, with quiet deliberation, it was heading for the street where I lived'. Red Hellion lives opposite the creepy, tightly locked Torrington Park, or 'Viper's Green'. Walking home from school one day, he meets Max, who is trying to break in. Before he knows it, Red finds himself sucked into Max's plans to discover the whereabouts of his father, who disappeared weeks before under sinister circumstances connected with the park. But neither Max nor Red realize just how much their lives are at risk for their investigations into the park, are linked to the terrible the legend of Medusa, and are about to lead them into horrific danger...
