When Johnny Dixon, Professor Childermass, and Fergie Ferguson have a party for their friend Dr. Coote, they expect the evening to be a blast - and it is! - but not quite the way they have in mind.

Soon Johnny, the professor, and Fergie are in a battle with the fearsome Priests of the Midnight Blood for Dr. Coote's life - and their own.

The Drum, The Doll and The Zombie From reading this book I have discovered that this book just isn't for me but I do recommend it to people. The author could have done a whole lot better.In my book this boy named Charlie is at a party and he meets a scientist named Dr.Cootive. Charlie and the doctor start walking and it turns out it is one of his dad's friends. Charlie's dad is in the Marines across the see. As they are walking Charlie notices a man following him to his car. Then Charlie blacks out. When Charlie wakes up in an old dentist chair he sees the doctor.The book described the characters and the settings so well.From reading this book it's not as bad as I thought.I give my book 4 stars.
