Darkmouth by Shane Hegarty

Every time we go to the library my ten and twelve year old will have a quick look at the "new books" shelves and usually grab the latest scary/ghoulish/parentless adventure with the opposite-of-pretty cover. More often than not these are returned unread but last week, this one, Darkmouth was a hit.
My ten year old described it has half Harry Potter, half Skullduggery Pleasant. In other words, fantastic.
With manageable, well spaced text and a few illustrations too. For ages eight or nine up, I'd say. 
P.s. and if you are feeling generous, this is book two.
