Inhaltsangabe zu „The Halloween Children“ von Brian James Freeman

The Halloween Children are watching—they’re always watching in this chilling novel of suburban horror from Bram Stoker Award winner Norman Prentiss and Brian James Freeman of Cemetery Dance Publications.   The accommodations at Stillbrook Apartments aren’t exactly glamorous, but they’re quiet, affordable, and well maintained. The handyman is usually available to help with a leak or a broken bulb, his wife and two adorable kids often tagging along. When occasion dictates, the neighbors gather to wish each other well and spread the requisite holiday cheer. Everything’s very nice. Very normal.   But as Halloween approaches, strange occurrences are happening all around Stillbrook. The children tell disturbing stories, bizarre noises bleed through the walls, and one abandoned unit is found to be inhabited by something sinister—something that’s no longer alive.   For the safety of the tenants, the Halloween party has been canceled. There will be no decorations or masks, no candied apples or witch’s brew. But without treats to divert the Halloween Children, they have no choice but to play some very nasty tricks. Advance praise for The Halloween Children “A fantastic collaboration between two amazing authors, this is a book that will stay with you long after you close the [book].”—The Behrg Writes

    Shame on me! While the beautiful print edition was sitting on my shelf for ages, I never managed to actually read it. Thankfully, I was able to get my hands on this ebook edition, and that did the trick...The story caught me completely by surprise, it was much less Halloween-ish, or better said: different in its angle, than expected. Also, Halloween is not the mayor subject here, but a nice playground for the story to unfold upon.The story is told from different POVs, which made me immediately take Harris' side and dislike Lynn, though ironically sometimes she uttered exactly what I would have thought in a similar family situation...While the beginning caught me off guard and made me wonder where this would all lead too, there was a sense of unease right from the start. With Halloween just a few days away (in the story), it was easy to foresee when the culminating horror would reach its boiling point and spill its ugly innards in every direction. Though the end could have answered one more question or even two, it was disturbing as hell and still keeps on haunting me. Far from your typical Halloween tale, this story is sure to cause some sleepless nights - one way or the other.(Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
