In this clever and quirky follow-up to The Gates and The Infernals, Samuel Johnson's life seems to have finally settled down - after all, he's still got the company of his faithful dachshund Boswell and his bumbling demon friend Nurd; he has foiled the dreaded forces of darkness not once but twice; and he's now dating the lovely Lucy Highmore.
But things in the little English town of Biddlecombe rarely run smoothly for long. Shadows are gathering in the skies; a black heart of pure evil is bubbling with revenge; and it rather looks as if the Multiverse is about to come to an end, starting with Biddlecombe. When a new toy shop's opening goes terrifyingly awry, Samuel must gather a ragtag band of dwarfs, policemen, and very polite monsters to face down the greatest threat the Multiverse has ever known, not to mention assorted vampires, a girl with an unnatural fondness for spiders, and highly flammable unfriendly elves.
The latest installment of John Connolly's wholly original and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, The Creeps is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its best.

Entertaining end to an Entertaining series
I liked the Samuel Johnson series and that sympathy kind of saved this book for me. the other two books didn't exactly lead up to this one and the characters unfortunately didn't develop much... it's still fun to listen to but somehow i smell a publisher who wants a series but with books you can read independently... it's just too close to a Marketing Strategy and too far from the joy and insight of the first two books book. What i try to say here is: VIVE LES ARTS! AND LEAVE THAT AUTHOR ALONE!
