Title: OF THE TREES
Author: E.M. Fitch
Pub. Date: February 28, 2017
Format: Paperback, eBook
Cassie and Laney fancy themselves amateur ghost hunters. When a carnival comes to town, Cassie embraces the chance to try something new. Carnival workers watch the girls with a collective gaze that ignites in Laney a dark and dangerous fascination, leaving Cassie unnerved. It’s not just their age or the unsettling way they stare. There is something in the shifting of their skin and the way their features seem to change in the shadows. Cassie can’s shake this sickening feeling that there’s more to the carnival than meets the eye. When townspeople suddenly start dying and bloody warnings appear around town, Cassie is lured into a nightmare where trees whisper and strange, shape-shifting men haunt the backwoods she once hunted for ghosts with her best friend. Then Laney goes missing, and only Cassie can get her back. But the creatures of the trees aren’t simply going to hand Laney over to Cassie without getting something in return.
NOW ONTO MY REVIEW!!!!
I went into this book not having any sort of clue what it was about…at all. I hadn’t read the overview or the synopsis of the book – I just read a very brief summary of the book before delving right into it. When I first started reading this book, I was kind of bored with it – the plot line just wasn’t going anywhere. However, the more I read this book, the more I enjoyed it. I got about a third of the way done and I just couldn’t put it down! I absolutely LOVED the rest of this book! I don’t really read horror novels, so that is a very big compliment! I loved the character of Cassie. She was very down-to-earth and safe in her actions – she was never one to put herself into the line of fire. This book had a lot of mystery to it and I absolutely was in awe with how this book ended! I totally recommend reading this book!
E.M. Fitch is an author who loves scary stories, chocolate, and tall trees. When not dreaming up new ways to torture characters, she is usually corralling her four children or thinking of ways to tire them out so she can get an hour of peace at night. She lives in Connecticut, surrounded by chaos, which she manages (somewhat successfully) with her husband, Marc.
1 winner will receive a $25 Fandango Gift Card, US Only.
