Jennifer Walkup did an excellent work. Her story starts as a regular one, with a school, teenagers, celebrations for Halloween and The Hunt, an infamous murder festival where students solve a fake, gruesome murder. Everything that I just say, adds a spicy promise of creepiness in the story and a lots of scary scenes, however, it goes way beyond that. The main character, Lange seems like a great girl. I mean, she definitely feels something for Vaughn, but she doesn't want to hurt her friend, Stace, who looks like has it bad for him, too. And I really liked her personality and how she reacted to every situation. Vaughn was simply amazing. He's everything I was hoping for when I started reading this book and I read about Lange and Vaughn. He is all the time there for Lange and I couldn't help but fall for him and to include him in my Unofficial Fictional Boy's list. What makes this book memorable is not only the level of creepiness and scary scenes that made me jump like I was seeing a movie and not reading a book, but the story is rooted in the past, bringing new and scary discoveries and entangling the story in the present even more. And the ending was something I wasn't expecting at all. My level of "I-Can't-Believe-It" cannot even be measured. I wouldn't change a thing, well, maybe when Lange passes out. It was not the perfect moment to pass out and it stressed me out, because I wasn't sure if it would be a happy ending or a "I'm-gonna-cry-for-weeks" ending. I definitely won't tell you which one it is, 'cause you'll have to find out, Book Addicts! I promise you, guys, that you are gonna love this book. Right now, this would be my perfect pick for a Halloween read, but since Halloween is long gone, I'd have it in my "TBR Halloween List" for next year and re-read it again! Full of mystery, creepy and scary situations that would make you close your eyes, an epic love story with more than one lifetime to make it unforgettable, swoony and desirable and a murder that would ravel their beliefs and would blow your mind!show moreby TUABFC
