I think this book would suit the reader that likes slasher movies like 'Scream' and gothic horror. I read that this writers favorite film is 'The Heathers' which I also love. I downloaded it as a freebie as the cover hinted at lots of blood and gore but also some dark humour. It was there but not enough for my liking (the humour that is) so 4 stars from me.
I came into this series at book two as I downloaded it when
it was on a free offer. I don’t think this mattered a lot as the events alluded
to only helped to build the tension. You know that bad stuff happened in book
one, but you don’t know exactly what. As with all good horror, there are a fair
few moments where you marvel at the bad decisions and the naiveté of psychopath
Chance’s victims. I screamed a few times at Luna and her dippy roommate Amanda.
Chance is a chilling baddie. We get to see into his deranged mind and he almost
seems sad and human when he explains his motives for subjecting Luna to his
special brand of murder and mayhem.
