“But no matter where I ran to or how loud I played the music, I could still hear a low chuckling coming from the thing on our front step.”
The town of Sering isn’t as quiet and quiant town as people think it is as every it’s haunted every night by creature that the town ironically refers to as Halloween. Once the sun sets each day, Halloween comes to collect it’s prize: a small live offering from each house and the residents don’t want to take any chances and find themselves facing Halloween’s wrath. But, the nightmare of residing in Strang is nothing compared to the yearly ritual Halloween demands of the residents on All Hallows Eve.
This is the first novel that I’ve read by C.V. Hunt and I have to say it was pretty good, I wished it was a little longer but other than that the book was pretty great. The book is fun and Hunt is able to captivate the readers with creating an atmosphere that oozes desperation while writing tersely and had you hooked from the first page. One of the biggest things that I loved about the book was imagining Halloween as a menace to society cause that is such an interesting and unique way to look at it. With some Halloween books, they can be quite predictable of how things are gonna go but that wasn’t the case here. Hunt does a really good job of fleshing out the plot in a way that isn’t predictable or overdone. But, this was an entertaining, spooky, and fun tale so check it out if you want!
