Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. Today we have a review of a middle grade fantasy horror audio book I listened to recently titled Hide and Seeker by Daka Hermon.
I heard about Hide and Seeker from another episode of Reading Glasses. Their recommendations really are great. I wasn’t expecting a middle grade book to be this good.

Zachariah Murphy is back, as suddely as he disappeared almost a year ago. His close friends are coming together to celebrate his return. Then they slowly begin to disappear and learn exactly why you follow the rules of the games you start.
From the very first chapter you are drawn in and feel for the characters. This fast paced action driven book does not disappoint.
I enjoyed this book and its unique plot. One of my favorite parts is how each character has their own fears to overcome. Which leads me to my favorite character, Lyric Rivers. His fear disturbed me the most.
Hide and Seeker is a great scary middle grade horror. I loved it! There was one particular part towards the end that reminded me of old movies like Poltergeist and Paranormal Activity. I don’t think todays middle schoolers have watched either of these movies so, I don’t believe it will hit them the same. Also, I have a big imagination.
In Hide and Seeker, there are a few possible triggers like, Familial death, missing children, and poverty. I recommend this book to any reader. Although it is a middle grade book, I enjoyed listening to it and think it was perfect for horror fans of any age.
