Synopsis:

Gone forever...

Corky and the Shadyside cheerleaders are sure that the evil spirit is destroyed. The terror is over.

Then Hannah is mysteriously thrown through the car window. And Naomi is nearly burned to death. One horrifying accident after another. And now Corky can no longer keep her greatest fear to herself—the evil is back!

But where is it?

Corky, Kimmy, and Debra aren’t waiting to find out. They have a plan to draw the evil out. Draw it out and destroy it for good. Unless, of course, the evil destroys them first...

My rating: ★★★★★

Season’s greetings... the evil is back!

Yay! We’re back with the Shadyside Cheerleaders! I love the Cheerleaders trilogy, so I was very much looking forward to reading this, and it was great! I love that it even has little recap of what previously happened to the girls because guess what, the evil is back!

Corky: “The worst has already happened. Nothing else is going to happen to us. Right?”
“Right,” Debra and Naomi replied in unison.

That’s a good one, you guys... It’s like you forgot you’re in a Fear Street novel. Lol.

I really liked this book and the return of the Evil.



I also like that the climax took place out of town. I actually enjoy these little outings outside Fear Street and even Shadyside. Don’t get me wrong, I love the creepiness of Fear Street! But a little change of scenery every once in a while is nice, too.

And we get another main character death in this one which hasn’t happened wince Bobby in The First Evil! I was so surprised! The death was just awful! R.L. Stine is very good at describing deaths and sprawling bodies. However, it’s a shame that the death happened off screen.

I have to say, Corky is probably one of my top favorite protagonists in any of the Fear Street books— I love her! She takes initiative and gets things done!



I also love that she isn’t petty and appreciates when another girl is good at cheerleading... unlike some of her teammates. And I also really liked Alex and Corky together—they were very cute!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! Here I thought we were done with the Ancient Evil, but nope! And there’s a sequel to this book, so I’m interested to see what that one will bring. Anyway, I highly recommend the Fear Street Cheerleaders series!

Time for some Easter Eggs! Janie from The New Boy and Gary Brandt from The Overnight were mentioned!

The Fear Street connection: Corky still lives on Fear Street, even after everything that’s happened. Lol.
