Rex Gerard and his father move to Scholomance after his mother died in a car accident. Rex is not convinced her passing was an accident. As he investigates the crash, he makes some interesting discoveries about the monsters living in Scholomance and his family’s past.
Rex is a noble hero. He has good instincts and follows them. I enjoyed that he is into classic horror books and movies. My heart went out to him for the unfortunate situations that happened to him.
Harlow becomes a really good friend to Rex. I like that she is not afraid to take risks, especially considering her mother is the school principal.
The plot was interesting and original. REX'D: Welcome to Scholomance had a really great ending and some interesting surprises. I could see my eleven-year-old son and his friends enjoying this book. It would also make a good movie.
