Children of Fear

Availability: Ready to download

The power of fear… Luke Fier hates listening to the townspeople talk about his sister, Leah. They call her evil. They say she has unnatural powers. Leah does have a strange talent—she can communicate with the animals. But Luke is sure she would never use this gift for evil. At least he was sure before their parents’ horrible accident. Now Leah seems so different. So angry. Lu The power of fear… Luke Fier hates listening to the townspeople talk about his sister, Leah. They call her evil. They say she has unnatural powers.

    Well other then the fact Leah is the original Parsel-tongue (figures it's a Fier/Fear right?) this was surprising. having not read this years ago it was all new to me. Stine does seem obsessed with weird sibling dynamics (in a set of 3 at least one is crazy, one mistakes the innocent sibling as the crazy one and one will either die or almost die. Every time.).

    Remember, little kids, when evil, are scary as hell. And don't ever piss them off! These books are always quick, and simple. You can't really judge the characters or storyline to much because it isn't meant to be AMAZING. It's just purely entertaining. If I were younger it could be fantastic, but to me it's just a filler between thicker books. It was sad how they lost their parents, and just gave up their farm.

I really was convinced that (view spoiler)[Leah was behind everything, she seemed so evil & so angry when people were attacked (hide spoiler)] and those were some gruesome attacks! Was there really an Orphan Train back in the day? That would definitely make for some interesting books. Poor Mary, got herself in the wrong place at the right time. She seemed sweet although the relationship between her and Luke was super fake. Sometimes its hard to read the dialogue in these books without rolling your eyes. I can't believe that ending, it was to simple with the person behind the attacks just (view spoiler)[leaving them. (hide spoiler)] Also the fact that (view spoiler)[the little brother was behind it all! I honestly did not see that coming at all even with the fact that he never spoke at all. (hide spoiler)]

    I really like the way the author R.L. Stine writes it's so descriptive which is exactly how I like to write. I enjoy the darkness and the surprising twist.

    The Fear Street Sagas are proving to be most disappointing. RL Stine not writing these is truly making these suffers. You can see where his ideas started and where the ghost writer killed it. Luke Fier is trying to keep the family farm afloat once his parents are killed in a carriage accident. But his sister Leah is seen talking to animals and wins a horse race because of it. His brother Corey hasn't spoken a word since their parents demise. And the villagers hate them for these quirks. Forced t The Fear Street Sagas are proving to be most disappointing.

Forced to board the Orphan Train, the Fiers are still faced with bullies and unnatural animal attacks. Luke is convinced Leah is evil and once a family takes them in, has her hauled to an asylum...upon which she is released when she explains to the doctor she has a gift with animals. Right. Cause "I have a gift with animals, I talk to them and they understand" is grounds for release from the asylum. There was so much that was never explained, like why Leah was happy and excited when everyone died because...spoiler, of course she's not actually the evil sibling. This was an annoying book. Strong dislike.

    This is a story about sibilings. Okay, the end was unexpected. Although i got the feel it wasn't Leah. Something was way off towards the end. That still didnt explain her actions - like how she would smile when those were murdered. It is quite disturbing. Like both leah and corey have bipolar in such young age. The snakes really creep me off. Urrgh!

    It was promising at the beginning. Very promising with the prologue. The middle was ok, ok. But the ending, it was really really poorly ended. Anticlimactic. Stine could've done a lott better than this, it had shown so much potential.

    I think I liked the Fear Saga more than just plain old fear street the series just had more to it for me .... I really loved all the twisted tales from this series so much fun I had an absolute blast reading all of these again in 2013 .... :)

    While the period setting of the novella does little to impact the overall plot of the novel, the story, overall was pretty good. I'd recommend it for fans of the Fear Street books.

    This reading was good from the beginning to end. It had such a twisted ending as usual coming from r.l. Stine. I actually loved this one! I would reread again!

    After reading a couple of bum ‘Fear Street’ books, this one was actually really great. I swear these three siblings had the worst luck in the history of the world. It was like tragedy after tragedy and I felt so bad for them. The parts with the townspeople made me so angry. I couldn’t believe it when things escalated to the point where (view spoiler)[they formed a mob and tried to burn the home of these poor kids down with them inside (hide spoiler)] .

The entire situation was super messed up and I was in a rage from how unfair it was. The speaking to animals aspect of the story could have been cheesy, but I liked it a lot. It was pretty creepy how these series of ‘accidents’ kept popping up against the people that weren’t nice to the Fear children. I sat there in suspense for the majority of the book, wondering what was going to happen next. When they showed up at the farm of the kind elderly couple, I was horrified because I knew that things weren’t going to work out like I wanted them to. There was this twist that I kind of saw coming and kind of didn’t. It made me wonder how events could have played out differently if (view spoiler)[all three of them had been happy at the farm, instead of Leah sulking and being difficult. I guess Corey was just a psychopath though, so it probably never would have worked out anyway (hide spoiler)] . The ending itself was good, but I wish that it hadn’t been left so open-ended.

    This was more entertaining than a lot of the Fear Street books I've read, although they all seem to have the same rather-stilted way of writing (interesting, given that they're ghost written). (view spoiler)[I guessed the 'twist' very early in the book, so a lot of my drive to continue centred around wanting to be proven right ;) (hide spoiler)] This was more entertaining than a lot of the Fear Street books I've read, although they all seem to have the same rather-stilted way of writing (interesting, given that they're ghost written).

    I really thought this series was one of the best ones he had written. I loved all the stories and the characters. The plot line of every story never wavered and was always entertaining. These are the kinds of books I would want my kids to read some day because I remember reading them and liking them so much. They are quick and easy to read and they help fuel your imagination. Love them!

    I always loved the Fear Street books, and to find one with a character that had the same name as me was hard to pass up. The story is wonderful and filled with chills and thrills, a great ride to try and figure out what is really going on.

    I read this book while in middle school. I was a HUGE R.L. Stine fan and like most of his other books, especially the Fear Street Sagas, I couldn't put it down.

    Nice little plot twist. Very much like Stine. Still enjoying this series. It just brings me back to the days when I was a kid and read these without having to come up with an explanation.
