A Soul To Steal by Rob Blackwell review

A Soul to Steal by Rob Blackwell

review requested by the author

Synopsis from Goodreads

You Are What You Fear

Something is stalking the citizens of Loudoun County, Va.

Is it the return of the notorious serial killer known as Lord Halloween? Or is it something worse—a figure that can cloak itself as your worst nightmare?

Kate and Quinn, two community journalists, rush to uncover the truth before a promised bloodbath on Halloween night.

The debut novel from award-winning journalist Rob Blackwell, A Soul to Steal balances suspense, horror, action and humor, building to a gripping and unforgettable conclusion. For readers who enjoy Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Jim Butcher, A Soul to Steal is the perfect autumn novel.

At some point I was reading this book very late at night in my kitchen, and I got really spooked, started imagining noises and movements and decided I'd better call it a night... The moral of the story - don't read it late at night unless you want to get spooked.

It's such a great mix of thriller where two journalists Quinn and Kate investigate a serial killer in their small town and get targeted by him; and paranormal horror story where aforementioned journalists have to deal not only with the killer, but with the legend of Sleepy Hollow and a fascinating Celtic myth about Princes of Sanheim....

Loved the story! And there is a lot to it too. Serial killer's creepy letters to a journalist from 12 years ago when he went on his first killing spree... Quinn's nightmares of headless rider... Kate's past... Spooky Tarot reading... I was shivering with delight.

It was also interesting to explore how debilitating fear can be and how people react to it with fight or flight, how fear freezes you to the spot when you know you have to hurry and get away from the killer.

I'm vague on purpose, peeps. I don't want to give you any spoilers. I just want you to read this book. It's really really good. I couldn't guess the identity of the killer until the very end, and I bet you wouldn't be able too :)

Очень интересная книга!

Кейт и Куинн - два журналиста из маленького американского городка не только пытаются разыскать серийного убийцу Лорда Хэллоуина, который после 12 лет затишья снова терроризирует их город о обещает им, что они в списке его жертв, они также пытаются разобраться со странными кошмарами Куинна о всаднике без головы и кельтском мифе о боге смерти....

Эта книги - и триллер и паранормальнная история ужасов. Читать ночью мне было страшновато. Тут вам были и письма убийцы 12-летней давности и страшные воспоминания Кейт, и борьба Куинна со своими страхами, жутковатый расклад Таро, и последние минуты жизни жертв Лорда Хэллоуина... Бр-р!

Читать стоит очень. Это прекрасный дебют Роба Блаквелла!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
