I received this book for free from Gifted in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Shockingly, this is another book that I got from 2016 Coastal Magic. Actually I got a beautiful bookmark that had a little book on it. When I turned it over I had won a copy of Brynn’s novel Entasy. Melanie and I later got to have dinner with Brynn. That doesn’t affect my rating, if it was not 5 star, I wouldn’t rate it as one.
Kylah is a normal girl who lives with her two brothers. Her brothers are very protective but after their parent’s death. Understandable, but when a man seems to be following her. Kylah notices a man following her. When she tells her brother, he assigns her a bodyguard. A very attractive bodyguard.
While gearing up for their big Halloween bash, Kylah finds a journal that she believes is her mother’s. A drawing found inside leads her on a path to find the perfect Halloween costume. One that shocks her family. After killing the man, things get weird for Kylah. A man declares his undying love. There is a group of people who all know her, but that she doesn’t know. Obviously something is going on that she doesn’t know about. But how much will she find out, and can she survive Halloween?
This is a really good start to a series. It has the main characters, a bit of their personalities, and the main issues. Many of the issues and topics broached during this Novella will likely carry through all of the books. I honestly appreciate that attention to detail. There is a level of disappointment in reading a sneak peek, only to have the series be completely different. Even though this is a full length book, it reads almost as a novella. By that I mean it reads really fast. Like one day fast. I guess I can kind of gauge how much I like a book by how fast it takes me.
Obviously, that is not the only criteria. If it took me months of constant reading, I would likely not enjoy it as much. If you are reading this and you’re an author that I read and I gave you a good rating. Then you go to my Goodreads and it says I read it over many months. This is likely because I have the attention span of a newt. Not only that, but I am like a dragon, I like shiny and new. Long story short, trust my reviews 🙂
