The Various  - Steve Augarde I picked this up because I liked the cover and title. Having finished the book, I suspect both were marketing gimmicks to make the books seem more intriguing. Not that it sucked or anything, but it wasn't novel or mysterious the way I had been hoping. A pretty standard kid-staying-at-old-family-home-discovers-secret-supernatural-whatever fantasy. Moderately interesting to read. Pacing a bit off, with the second half feeling much more full than the first and introducing most of the secondary characters and plot points.
