A predictable thriller novella, with zombies coming out of lakes and a serial killer on the loose.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: Mothers, Mansions, and Mayhem: Voices in the Snow
I've read other books by Darcy Coates and enjoyed them, but Voices in the Snow was disappointing. I expected more dystopian, more apocalypse, and less overdone wendigos and zombies.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: Through the Woods
If there was a musical equivalent, it would be a hint of Myrkur's haunting vocals coupled with the feel of the moors in Wuthering Heights.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: The Tale of Halcyon Crane
What unfolds reads like a quintessential gothic novel. Not quite as gloomy or dark, but certainly has an atmosphere that lends itself to deep shadows and cold nights.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: Horrid
Horrid tells the story of Jane, whose father died 5 weeks ago, and whose mother is lying to her.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: When I Arrived at the Castle
Emily Carroll again delivers a disturbing and gory narrative, complete with illustrations that drink from a well of the macabre.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: Graphic Novel Review Locke and Key #1: Welcome to Lovecraft
Sufficiently creepy, Welcome to Lovecraft was an alluring welcome to the series. I ordered the second volume before I finished reading the first.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: Within These Walls
3 stars Cinematic as usual, Ahlborn's writing in this book was just as good as her other ones. I can't say Within These Walls is my favorite of hers or her creepiest, but it's definitely good, though not up to standards as her other books.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: The Shuddering
The book starts off mid-action and does.not.stop.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: Hunted
Coates has you panting as the forest killer hunts down the characters, starting with poor Eileen. A typical mystery/thriller, Hunted leaves you guessing what the hunter with the razor sharp claws is, and who's really behind the murders.
