Review: I liked this book. I don't read very much horror but I thought this book was really great. It was exciting, scary and entertaining. Of course it was a little bit slow at the beginning because a lot of it was the setup for the rest of the series. However, once Reggie and her friends fully believed in the existence of the Vours things picked up quickly. I found a few things to be predictable. My main problem was that it was a little bit hard to follow sometimes. At a few points in the story it was confusing as to what was going on. Other than that though I liked this book and am excited to read the rest of the series.
I liked the characters in the book as well. Reggie and Henry were both great characters, but i have to say my favorite was Aaron. He was so unique and cool and that really made him stand out. I also liked his and Reggie's fascination with horror stories.
Overall, this is a promising start to a new series. Lucky for me the next two books have already been released so I won't have to wait for the sequels (at least not yet). Anyone who wants to read a scary story should start here.
