    Horrific Halloween Hijinks!

    I was provided with a complimentary copy of this ebook in exchange for my honest review. Oh my God! Shades of The Shining which quickly disappear. Brian and Norm begin with a pretty benign story ... an apartment complex caretaker going about his rounds just before Halloween. Sprinkled in is the conflict between the caretaker and his wife over their disparate parenting styles pertaining to their son and daughter. The father favors the son while the mother favors the daughter. We are then introduced to some of the strange/odd/creepy tenants of Stllbrook Apartments. The story is told from multiple perspectives, which are woven together seamlessly and propel the story forward at a breakneck (almost literally!) pace. We switch back and forth from the caretaker's journal, to his wife's counselor-assigned journal to recordings, emails and interviews. Not until the end will you discover what is truly happening and who is responsible for the horrific goings-on at Stillbrook. Ultimately, this was a truly scary collaboration from two authors who are no strangers to horror. Definitely well worth the read ... but remember to keep the lights on!

    Great ominous tale

    Two great authors in one creepy tale! Switching between several different views, it keeps you guessing who's version is true. Great creeper draws you in & its put together well, never would guess it's two different authors with their own great styles!

    Halloween Time!

    Freeman and Prentiss have meshed to deliver a chilling tale. This story has all the ingredients to become a classic Halloween haunt. The stakes are high when Halloween is threatened to be called off in this quiet little apartment complex. The subtle advancing pace that moves The Halloween Children to its final revealing end will have you hooked all along the way.

    Great Halloween Book

    This is a good read. Note: if you are a reader that prefers straight reading, this may be a hard read. It is written like a journal, each paragraph alternating the writer. The story starts out relatively normal, but quickly picks up speed, keeping you engaged and guessing. You think you know the answer and then the next chapter has you guessing again. I found myself liking one character and hating the other, but by the end, realized I had missed clues that should have made me view the characters differently. This is a great Halloween read.

    This horror novel is a treat!

    The authors of The Halloween Children are sneaky geniuses in the art of storytelling—adepts who snatch your attention, get you invested and immersed in the tale and then hint at something sinister in a subtle way that provokes dread, horror and suspense. It’s as if they flick a juicy “thought drop” into the pool of the reader’s imagination and then let the ramifications ripple into obsession, inciting intrigue and fear for the fate of beloved characters. Harris, the Stillbrook Apartment complex’s handyman, is good father, but in all honesty, he favors the side of his son, Matt, where child discipline is concerned. His wife Lynn is searching for herself and struggling with inner turmoil, on edge and ruminating over their marriage––should they divorce?––and within the family’s dynamics, her daughter Amber delights her to no end, but her son Matt needs to be watched. Then there’s matter of the creepy neighbors, the tenants of Stillbrook: a spooky no-neck woman in a wheelchair who may be faking her injuries, the Durkins’ exotic, thousand-dollar bird that shrieks unearthly squawks that sound like someone being tortured—or murdered. Which is strange because there actually had been a grisly death within the complex that was kept hush-hush by management. The story unfolds through Harris’ journal, Lynn’s journal (as assigned by a marriage counselor she’s been seeing in secret), recordings, digital transcriptions, email and interviews. The immediacy of this technique makes for a taut, fast-paced, enjoyable read. The Halloween Children kept my eyes glued to the glow of the screen, licking my lips and swiping digital pages into the wee hours after midnight. This horror novel is a treat!
