Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Katherine Arden returns with another creepy, spine-tingling adventure in this follow-up to the critically acclaimed Small Spaces.

Having survived sinister scarecrows and the malevolent smiling man in Small Spaces, newly minted best friends Ollie, Coco, and Brian are ready to spend a relaxing winter break skiing together with their parents at Mount Hemlock Resort. But when a snowstorm sets in, causing the power to flicker out and the cold to creep closer and closer, the three are forced to settle for hot chocolate and board games by the fire.

Ollie, Coco, and Brian are determined to make the best of being snowed in, but odd things keep happening. Coco is convinced she has seen a ghost, and Ollie is having nightmares about frostbitten girls pleading for help. Then, Mr. Voland, a mysterious ghost hunter, arrives in the midst of the storm to investigate the hauntings at Hemlock Lodge. Ollie, Coco, and Brian want to trust him, but Ollie's watch, which once saved them from the smiling man, has a new cautionary message: BEWARE.

With Mr. Voland's help, Ollie, Coco, and Brian reach out to the dead voices at Mount Hemlock. Maybe the ghosts need their help - or maybe not all ghosts can or should be trusted.

Dead Voices is a terrifying follow-up to Small Spaces with thrills and chills galore and the captive foreboding of a classic ghost story.

Critic Reviews

"Arden handily transforms the haunted house story into something much richer, scarier, and more sinister.... Middle-graders who thrill to spooks and scares will find plenty (maybe even more than they bargained for!) here." (Booklist starred review)

"Arden's high scare factor, richly drawn mountain setting, relevant themes of loss and belonging, and vividly eerie descriptions evoke the very best of horror for this age set." (Kirkus starred review)

"In this spooky sequel to Small Spaces, Arden excels at creating an atmosphere of claustrophobic tension with memorably menacing details. Readers will again be invested in the ghoulish surprises in store for the resourceful, likably flawed protagonists." (Publishers Weekly starred review)

A Very Enjoyable SPOOKY Series For Young Readers

I have quite enjoyed the books in this series and I’m anxious for Katherine Arden to publish more. For young readers, these stories are scary but not (in my opinion) overwhelmingly so. In fact, I really like the fact that the books end on a strong and happy note (rather than an ominous note that makes you feel a bit icky). Very likeable characters and superb writing.

Perfect for older kids

This book is so well written. I listened to it with my son and we both enjoyed it. It's scary but not too scary. The story line is well put together from beginning to end. The characters have great dimensions. And it really hooks you in. Great for older kids, I would say 4th grade & up (and adults).
