Flock Horror Book Review: Birds on a Blood Hunt

If you’re on the hunt for a children’s book that marries the elements of horror and humour, look no further than “Flock Horror.” The third offering in Jennifer Killick’s Dread Wood series, this middle-grade novel is a soaring new addition to young readers’ horror fiction.


A Glimpse into the Unfolding Adventure

Angelo, Hallie, Gustav, and Naira, four friends who met under rather unfortunate circumstances (the world’s worst school detention, no less), are back for more action. This time around, they’re faced with flocks of bloodthirsty birds that have descended upon their small town, leaving everyone terrorised. With the school’s big events on the horizon, the young heroes must strategise a way to keep their classmates safe while solving the mystery behind these eerie avian attacks from giant vampire birds that are after blood.
