    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!

    Starts out well, but becomes very graphic

    In the Mood For April 22, 2017 The Halloween Children by Brian James Freeman & Norman Prentiss (3 Stars) 22618934 Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. This novella was a quick read. The story centers around Harris, the handyman at the Stillbrook Apartments, his wife, Lynn, and their children. They are residents at Stillbrook, along with a few other strange characters. When Halloween is cancelled, things go awry, to say the least. The book is told primarily from Harris and Lynn’s viewpoints, with some secondary viewpoints along the way. Harris and Lynn’s marriage and family problems take center place. Each of them overtly favor one child over the other. It makes it very hard for the reader to side with either as you can sometimes see both of them may be right. Then things start to get really strange with their children and with other Stillbrook residents. Unfortunately, the book then ends with a gory, grisly ending which I just didn’t care for. The writing is a collaboration of two authors, and I loved the writing style and the creepy disturbing tone of the book right up until the way-too-graphic-for-me ending.

    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.
