A Soul to Steal
By Rob Blackwell
About the book:
You Are What You Fear
Something is stalking the citizens of Loudoun County , Va.
Is it the return of the notorious serial killer known as Lord Halloween? Or is it something worse—a figure that can cloak itself as your worst nightmare?
Kate and Quinn, two community journalists, rush to uncover the truth before a promised bloodbath on Halloween night.
A Soul to Steal is the perfect book to read in October or if you are feeling in a spooky, ghoulish, Halloween mood. It’s a mix of genres, including mystery, thriller, romance and the paranormal. I love reading mystery, thriller, and romance and I’m just getting into paranormal genres. Paranormal genre never caught my attention until recently. I like the mix of romance between humans and ghosts or vampires. I am trying to open my mind to different things and it’s also opened my world as well. Expanding my horizon can only get better.
A Soul to Steal takes place in the month of October. Kate returns to her hometown of Loudoun County, VA after 12 years staying away. Twelve years ago, her mother was killed by the serial killer Lord Halloween. When she returns, she starts a job at the local newspaper and meets Quinn. Kate and Quinn work together to solve the mystery of Lord Halloween and find the killer themselves. Kate is determined to find the person who killed her mother. She’s tired of running and hiding.
During their hunt for the truth and finding the killer, Kate and Quinn remain friends but also develop feelings for each other. They discover abilities within each other that help them with their journey of their lives. They eventually suspect each other, but quickly realize they need to trust each other in order to survive.
If you are a scaredy cat like me, I highly recommend you not read this book at night or just before bed! You may just experience nightmares, weird dreams or in the least go to bed with that scary feeling. Unfortunately, I was only able to read this at night, so I often had to clear my mind before going to sleep! The best time to read this book is during the day time, when the sun is out! Be sure you aren’t home alone either. This book was well written with vivid descriptions of characters and situations. I could picture in my mind what I was reading. I loved how the chapters ended, with suspense! I did not want to put this book down, but then some chapters ended up with a scary suspenseful scene, so that scared me even more to keep going.
