THE HALLOWEEN CHILDREN is a sure-fire thriller that will elicit chills down readers spines as they're transported to an isolated community in an out of the way apartment complex where all is not right on this particular late October. Authors Brian James Freeman and Norman Prentiss expertly capture the atmosphere of the All Hallows season with descriptions that will evoke the sensations of autumn no matter what time of year this novel is read. Readers will imagine that they can hear the crunch of colored leaves beneath their feet and smell the scent of pumpkins in the air as they huddle around the book as if feeling a cold breeze caress the back of their necks.
The main protagonists Harris & Lynne Naylor are easy to identify with as they struggle through their daily grind of both of them working while raising their two kids Mattie and Amber. But their seemingly mundane lives take a turn for the worst as they begin to suspect that things aren't quite right in their little community. To say much more regarding the plot would spoil the novel. Suffice it to say that it's a page-turner of the sort that one finishes it in one or two sittings.
The imagery is very powerful in this novel as is the creeping sense of dread that makes itself known early on and increases as the story progresses. It's a lean, mean little chiller that is definitely not for the faint of heart.
THE HALLOWEEN CHILDREN was previously released in a limited edition but will be available as both a hardcover and as an e-book on 7/13/17.
