Review: The Third Evil by R.L. Stine

The Third EvilIt’s back!

Did the evil spirit really leave Kimmy’s body? The cheerleaders of Shadyside High can still feel its dark presence, and Corky knows that it is out there, somewhere close. And getting closer.

Corky is tormented night after night by dreams of her dead sister, Bobbi. What terrifying message is Bobbi trying to tell her? When the evil begins again—more horrible, more gruesome than ever—Corky knows it is up to her to learn the century-old secrets and destroy the evil spirit’s power for good. But so many have died already—will Corky be next?Add to Goodreads

When it comes to the Fear Street novels, there are some that are hits, some that are misses and some that are okay. This is perhaps one of my favorite novels from the series. It’s one of the ones I vividly remember from my childhood and I believe it’s probably one of the first books I ever owned from the series.

Is it perfect? No. I still have a lot of confusion about the death of Sarah Fear. According to another book, she died in a different manner. Not only that, but she supposedly died within months of marrying into the Fear family and was killed by the evil spirit of her spiteful friend, who was the real Sarah and who happened to have drowned on a ship while crossing the Atlantic. And yet, I do not know if my memory of all of the books has blurred and perhaps Sarah’s death is as it’s been described in the cheerleader series or if there was a big whoops! when Stine proceeded to create one of his other Fear Street series.

As for the cheerleader series, I find this book to be lacking on the thriller/suspense front. Perhaps it’s because this story finally decided to be narrated by the person who was possessed. In fact, I thought that was a great twist and I enjoyed it. There is only one more cheerleader novel left for me to indulge. I can only hope it continues to follow the same story line, but I’ll admit, it’s one I think I have read, but can’t really recall.
