Book Review: The Haunting Season
Do you like your horror with ghosts, demons, paranormal powers, and creepy graveyards? Than this may be the one for you. A group of teens is thrown into a supposedly haunted house. All of the teens have powers and they have one month together to test out the house and see if it is really haunted. There is more than they bargained for going on in this house. Are the things they see and feel bad or good? Are they being helped or hindered? Is the house more than it seems? Will they be able to make it a month and come out alive?
This is a perfect story for those that love horror and the new adult genre. There are some scenes that may be too much for younger teens. The story is filled with action and suspense. Just when you think you have figured out what is going on and who is to blame, BAM, you are surprised with new suspects. The storyline held my interest throughout and moved at break neck speed. The teen characters were written well and all had their own angst.
This is my first read by Michelle Muto. I would like to read more. Her ghosts are particularly spooky and she is a whiz at building atmosphere. This is the perfect read for a winter night. Excellent with a cup of hot cocoa and a blanket. You might want to turn on a few extra lights.
