Rezension zu "A Night Amongst The Gravestones (Horror)" von Helen Deakin

Solid ghost story
misspidervor 3 Jahren

Some teenagers are out for a night of creepy dare at the cemetery, telling the obligatory ghost stories and playing scary tricks to each other. But when one of them is taken by a creepy demon creature, the fun turns into deadly earnest. Will they be able to rescue their friend, and most of all, stay alive themselves? A solid and well-written ghost story with all the necessary creepy ingredients.

Rezension zu "The Clock Struck One (Paranormal Horror)" von Helen Deakin

Nothing is as it seems...
misspidervor 3 Jahren

When Tamara and her family move to a new home, strange and scary things begin to happen - things that only Tamara can hear and see. But are they real?

The plot of the book is OK with some scary moments, but bleeding walls, wet floors, and clocks ticking backwards are not really new, and the main twist was figured out soon. Also, I did not really care for the characters. The introduction of Tamara and her family read like your typical outsider teen novel - the misunderstood and ignored black sheep of the family, whining about the injustice of having to move away from her friends and her siblings which are always favored by their parents. And - of course - Tamara has to move into the smallest bedroom of all.

While the writing was flawless, it somehow felt simple, like a book written for readers who actually are too young for this story. Or maybe it's me being too old...
