Publisher's Summary

In this clever and quirky follow-up to The Gates and The Infernals, Samuel Johnson's life seems to have finally settled down - after all, he's still got the company of his faithful dachshund Boswell and his bumbling demon friend Nurd; he has foiled the dreaded forces of darkness not once but twice; and he's now dating the lovely Lucy Highmore.

But things in the little English town of Biddlecombe rarely run smoothly for long. Shadows are gathering in the skies; a black heart of pure evil is bubbling with revenge; and it rather looks as if the Multiverse is about to come to an end, starting with Biddlecombe. When a new toy shop's opening goes terrifyingly awry, Samuel must gather a ragtag band of dwarfs, policemen, and very polite monsters to face down the greatest threat the Multiverse has ever known, not to mention assorted vampires, a girl with an unnatural fondness for spiders, and highly flammable unfriendly elves.

The latest installment of John Connolly's wholly original and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, The Creeps is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its best.

Think 'Aladin 4, Jafar Gets a Haircut'

I love most of John's work. He is guilty of milking his two big successes, Charlie Parker and Samuel Johnson, far beyond any natural end point. Narrator from "The Gates" is much better. Blatently transphobic, a real shock from this author.

Fun short series

The Creeps is actually book three of a three part series and each builds on the next, beginning with The Gates. The final two books are narrated by Tim Reynolds, who is one of my favorite readers, and does a great job with these stories as well. The stories are light hearted, very funny, and conclude very satisfactorily. If you are in the mood for a very entertaining and clean story about a young boy and his dachshund who get involved with some very unusual characters and some nefarious evil doers, this is for you.

Just not as funny

Would you consider the audio edition of The Creeps to be better than the print version?

Well yes the narrator has great voices.

What did you like best about this story?

The Crudford demon

What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voices and the way he reads the story

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Maybe

Any additional comments?

The book was good, but the other two books in the series were just very good.
