With three knocks, Ruby is cast into a living hell…

Traveling to what seems like the perfect job, Ruby is excited about staying in a Yukon cabin with only a pack of sledge dogs to care for.

Book 1: Black Eyed Children

Ruby finds that the Yukon wilderness is not the refuge she thought it would be. She hears voices whispering to her in the bleak silence, and thinks she is losing her mind until the children arrive. Ruby soon discovers that it’s hard to keep the devil out when you’ve already opened the door.

Ruby hopes her new job at a ski resort will help her bury the past and move on. But when a group of skiers mysteriously disappear, she knows that the children survived, and they won’t rest unless she lets them in.

Battered and wheelchair bound, Ruby has now found refuge in a dingy apartment building. Her brain is wracked by nightmares and an all-consuming sense of paranoia. Yet the demonic children with their pool-black eyes have not forgotten her, and they will not rest until they finally possess her.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The heroine was a Warrior woman. She kicked ass and took names. She was great and so were the dogs!

    Wow! Excellent! Loved the whole plot! I could really imagine Being in the cabin all alone and how creepy it could be. Good job Sara! I can’t come up with anything bad about it. Looking forward to the next one!

    This time Ruby is working at a hotel/lodge called the Bears Run Resort. It is located on a hilltop offering skiing slopes also. When the mist rolls in Ruby starts seeing the children again. She and her co-worker, Tristan begin to be attacked by the ghost children. This story is full of creepiness and goosebumps. It could be a standalone but I would recommend them in order. Great story and I can’t wait for the next one!

    A great horror story about demon children. Imagine stranded in a cabin in the frozen wilderness with creepy children trying to get in. Also loved the sled dogs and really prayed nothing would happen to them so I thank the author for that. The one funny thing I couldn’t get out of my head was the original AND Jaws skit with the shark knocking on people’s doors trying to get in. 😄

    I gave this book three stars because I felt that the story should be rewritten as a short story. The endless descriptions of how cold she was and how isolated she was became, after awhile, annoying. The appearance of the children seemed anticlimactic.Some parts of the story lacked realism. Nobody would hire an inexperienced person to take care of his valuable sled dogs. Also, the first night trip to the outhouse would make her aware of the practicalities of a chamber pot.This was an an entertaining story, but a bit disappointing in the creepy story category

    I really enjoyed reading this book. By the end of the first chapter I was hooked and I didn’t want to put it down till the end. I like scary stories with a lot of suspense, and this one definitely fit.The only reason for giving four stars instead of five, is because of the occasional grammar mistakes (i.e. using distinguish instead of extinguish, or he instead of she). Sometimes I had to read a sentence over again to figure out what it was supposed to say, but that only happened a few times.I know this is the first in a series of two books and I am definitely going to read the next one.

    Good take on this legend. The main character was problematic but with an inner strength. Highly recommended for horror fans.

    I would’ve rated it higher but every time I came across bad spelling , it would take me out of the story. If that doesn’t bother you and you’re looking for a good & creepy book, this is a pretty good one. That being said, I look forward to the next book.

    Why go to all the trouble of explaining how the main character has a disorder that doesn’t allow her to “read” people then never refer to this again. She degenerative capable of “reading” the “children.” Overly long and convoluted story. I’m sorry, but I was not a fan.

    I recommend reading Black Eyed Children first so you know a little of the back story but you could read this as a stand alone if needed….poor Ruby is stuck high on a secluded mountain with another co-worker for 3 days fighting off the ghostly children who love to use decapitated heads as a weapon….very creepy book!!

    They knock 3 times…do NOT let them in!! Once I started reading I could not put this book down….this is a great story to go along with the legend of the Black Eyed Children

    I have read a few stories about black eyed children and this one was pretty good. There were minor editing issues but that doesn’t take away from the story. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. I was left with a few unanswered questions but that makes sense since this is the beginning of a series. I do plan on reading the next book in the series.Another great book provided by my subscription.

    One dimensional throughout. Attempt made at backstory for main character but no others. Plot flimsy & totally deniable. Wouldn’t recommend to any one. Not even young, unsophisticated readers who might like campfire horror stories. Even they would be sickened by violence to animals. Sick, not scary, and there are more? Why? Don’t waste your time.

    Really good read! I have never read from this author, but will again in the future. Some of the suspense scenes were real page turners. And I REALLY liked her always protecting the dogs above all else. Thank you for that. If you want a book that makes you feel as if you are freezing to death in the Yukon territories, then this is the one

    Black eyed children #1 & #2Both were great! Kept me at the edge of me seat. Read both in one day, couldn’t stop.Only one problem, in book 2 they lost their phones…shortly there after, the phones were back again. How did that happen? Did I miss something?

    Pretty good story; especially during a snow storm! The ending was congested and abrupt. Creepy, especially if you’re home alone.

    Another very scary story about those creepy kids. I found myself shivering at times while reading this. Great believable characters! I think the Gondola scared me as much as the kids. I’m a bit afraid of heights. 😱

    Good story. Good series. Believable character. Can’t wait for the next story. Would’ve given four or five stars but editing issues brought down the rating. At one point both characters lost their phones. A few chapters later they were using said phones as flashlights to see around the kitchen. Also the word barely is misspelled half the time.(spelled barley)

    I was so scared I had to stop and start, I think this series should be made into a movie,, I would definitely pay to see,, just make sure either to write the screen play or someone like the writer of insidous

    This being the third book I suspect will be the last. I hope I’m wrong this series has been excellent and this third the best of them all. I would be freaking out to if little kids were wanting and begging to get in. Knowing they were little evil monsters! I would hope to see this on a movie screen also. What a fest that would be. Well Sara, you’ve outdone yourself! Absolutely loved every word! Keep them coming!

    This book was too much liked the first one. It started out good but quickly evolved into a repeat of Ruby’s Yukon experience which took out some of the excitement for me. Makes me hesitant to read the third book of the series. This one is slightly less captivating than the first book.

    After reading all three of the Black Eyed Children books, I want to first applaud Ms. Clancy’s ability to create a sense of tension and fear and hold it throughout an entire story. This is both a gift and, if you’ll pardon the pun, overkill. The books are intense page turners, and the writing is excellent – descriptive, sensory inducing, your heart races and you find yourself pulled into the action and terror. Despite all this, the books left me unsatisfied. There were void of any explanations as to the origins of the Black Eyed Children or why they had this polite limitation of requiring physical entrance before they could do physical damage. Terrifying and unrelenting only goes so far. Its like a rich dessert without a meal or a free fall without impact.If the next book is another battle without any deeper understanding or insight into the who, what, or where of the BEC, I think I’ll pass. I love dessert, but occassionly need a little meat with my meals.If, however, you prefer ice cream and are not looking for something meatier, the books are a chilling read.

    Ruby got the ideal winter job of caring for a pack of dogs and staying in a cabin in the wilderness. As soon as she was alone the feeling of being watched was strong. The story from here on was so scary I about jumped out of my skin more than once. I highly recommend this book if you like reading on the edge of your seat and have a wild imagination.

    Although editing was better in this book, the story wasn’t as good as the first two books. Although this last book in the series was a disappointment I’ll keep reading Sara Clancy’s books.

    I have read a lot of horror it’s practically all I do read. I could not stop turning the pages on all three of these books. I really felt for Ruby but what I loved about her is she kept fighting. The whole series was excellent and I would love to see this as a series of films. As I was reading I even had actresses and actors picked out as it played out in my head. While there is no more to this series I will definitely be reading more from this author already have a book bought. If you want to be creeped out and unable to put a book down this series is for you.
