Locke & Key, Volume 3: Crown of Shadows: 05/03/18
Locke & Key, Volume 3: Crown of Shadows by Joe Hill is the half way point of the series. More keys are discovered. More mayhem ensues. The main characters come to more danger.
Kinsey, who removed her fear at the close of the last book, is now living on the wild side. She's taking all sorts of risks, many of them unnecessary.
She and some friends go into an abandoned facility that's flooded by the ocean. She's looking for her father's name, proof that he was here once. She ends up getting everyone trapped and nearly drowned for her efforts.
Meanwhile the boys of the family are playing with a key that controls the shadows. The way its drawn, the shadows look more like black goo than shadows. Regardless, they become all sorts of monsters and creatures.
I really wish I could say I was hooked by this series but I'm losing interest. I'm reading it mostly now out of maternal obligation as my son devoured the series in one sitting.
