Our customer reviews

I received this book free from the author in exchange of a honest review. Thank you, Sam! The story I encountered in this book is unique. While the children from Spurlake BC start to disappear in a mysterious way, Genie Magee si trapped in her own room by her mother, which accuses her of being possessed by the devil. The day before she escape, the face of the last child who went missing appears on the wall of her room and tells her that she is next. Rian, her only real friend, helps her escape and both run away from Spurlake. Along the way, many obstacles overcome and they make them to reach to Marshall\'s farm, an ex-scientist. Toghether, they find out who kidnapped the missing kids from Spurlake and they try to save them. During the whole story, a lot of clues appear and you have to read the book to find out what it\'s all about. The story will have you hooked, but the ending is a bit disappointing - I won\'t give you any spoilers! My opinion The Repossession is more like a Sci-Fi thriller, though I expected it to have more fantasy. The whole story takes place in a steady pace, so you don\'t get bored at all, and it keeps you in suspense. I really liked Sam Hawksmoor\'s stile - it won and kept me intrigued throughout the 500 pages of this book. However, it seemed a bit cruel that all those children had little chance to escape from the hands the scientists. The end, as I said, was a little bit disappointing, but...I\'ll shut up! :)) Interestingly cover. You\'ll wonder what signifies, but I won\'t reveal anything. I hope I\'ll have the opportunity to read the sequel, The Hunting. At the end of the book, Sam included one chapter of the second novel, wich sparked my interest more. I would like to find out if, after all, the protagonists will escape from the hands of the bad guys forever and will get to live a normal life - though probably more
