If you’re looking for the perfect spooky Halloween book, this is a definite read. I had heard of Christopher Golden before but had never read any of this books. Now I’m very excited to start diving into his backlist of spooky books. As Halloween is my favorite holiday there was no doubt about me reading this. It was creepy, unsettling, and full of twists galore. I thought I would get confused by the multiple POVs but the characters were so perfectly fleshed out that I wasn’t confused at all. The children in the creepy, old costumes were definitely the one aspect of this story that prevented me from reading this book at night, they truly scared me. I also enjoyed all of the crumbling family dynamics in this book, it was a nice break from all the brutal horror.
Many thanks to St. Martins Press for the gifted copy for my honest review.
