"She looked away from the tub for a fraction of a second, and when she looked back, there was a boy standing in the tub, watching her with wide black eyes, her razor clutched in one hand. He tilted his head, his upper lip twitching."
The Haunted was really fast and spooky, perfect for an October read!
I really liked the pace the author set this book at. There wasn’t a moment that I was sitting and wanting to close the book from boredom.
I liked the characters in this a lot more than I did the characters in The Merciless by Danielle Vega, one of her other novels.
I liked the setting, Drearford was a really creepy town that gave off vibes of eerie restlessness. I also enjoyed interactions between characters, I sometimes found myself laughing even given the creepiness.
This was a fairly enjoyable read that I’ll probably re-read next spooky season!
