Review quote

Praise for "The Hallowed Ones" "This is a book to make you fear the shadows--a horrifying and gruesome tale of faith, and things that blink red eyes in the night. I began reading in the daylight, and read on into the late hours, leaning close, biting my lip. I could not look away; I was obsessed. Katie is an unbreakable soul." Lauren DeStefano, New York Times Bestselling author of the Chemical Garden Trilogy "What an eerily believable, unique story! I can't stop thinking about it--or shivering." Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of the "Wicked Lovely Books" "Tight pacing, suspenseful scenes, Wow! moments of tension, and exposure into a world I knew little about, " The Hallowed Ones" is an exciting, terse read. . . .
