Top 5 Thrillers of October

Hey ya'll,
So we are well into October and things are getting spookier as the day of Halloween draws closer to us. With that being said, here are the top 5 thrillers you need to read to keep you in the crazy moments of October!!!!!



Synopsis

The world is a pretty straightforward place. Even for medium Sara Stone things seem pretty simple, aside from the whole talking to spirits bit. But when the spirits get too hard to handle and Sara ends up admitted to a mental hospital, the world starts to seem a lot less straightforward. First her family disappears, including her four year old son. Then she gets the sneaking suspicion that not only are the staff at the mental hospital somehow connected, but they also have no intention of ever letting her leave the hospital. 
Everything changes when Sara has her first visitor in three months. Daniel is handsome, friendly, and a complete stranger. When he promises to spring her from the hospital and swears that everything she's experienced is completely real, Sara has no choice but to believe him. But once she reaches a run-down Victorian house in the tiny Alabama town her rescuer calls home, the last thing she expects to discover is that every memory she has is a lie. 
Daniel reveals a world filled with angels, demons, and an impending war humans know nothing about. Sara wants to ignore her role in the whole mess – all that matters is solving the mystery of where her son has gone. But the forces of Heaven, Hell, and the Heart have other plans for her. Can she find her child before the world comes crashing down?

My Opinion

What caught my eye about this novel would have to be the cover! It is very rare to see a female grace the cover of a book and let alone be the lead in that story as well. I love the dramatic aspect of this piece and how this book is giving us a new perspective on what a novel can be about. This novel clearly shows us that vampires aren't our only worries.

Synopsis

Before the legend of the Keepers, came the story of the Wolf. 

Once upon a time, there lived a man whose fate would rest with two sisters. One will hold his heart. With her, he will find a love that will last forever, though it will come with a price. 
From the other sister, he will learn fortitude as he discovers that she holds the power to destroy all he holds dear. For as easily as one sister captures his heart, the other will trap his soul.

My Opinion

Up above is the prequel to the Keepers Saga! First off, who doesn't love a good Werewolf tale to read throughout the scariest time of year? A full moon, a man who shifts into a dominating predator, and the love triangles that keep getting complex. 
This is the perfect novel to give you a good fright and an entertaining plot twist.


#3. The Bound Series by Eve Newton

Synopsis

He knew her body was just the host, he knew she was possessed by a Demon, but he didn't care. Slade loved her, but she betrayed him so he kidnapped her to punish her. He didn't count on ending up with someone he didn't bargain for. She tricked him and he fell for it and her, only to have her taken away from him and the woman he originally wanted returned to him. Only he doesn't want his Demon Mistress any more. He wants the woman he lost. Can Slade bring her back and get rid of the others, or will she be lost to him forever? A paranormal, erotic short story with a dark twist.

My Opinion

I do not recommend this novel to be read by anyone under the age of 17 due to it being an erotic paranormal short story. What I love about this story is that it shows us the messiness of life in general beside the whole demon thing. It really pushes us to look at the consequences of our actions. You not only get this sexy story, but you also get something deeper here that will scare you all while enlightening you on what sacrifice is. Newton surely has outdid herself and others in her genre! I look forward to seeing more from her.





Synopsis

When Grace Allen discovers a valuable ring in a gutter, she thinks it’s her lucky day, but, fate has other ideas. Now, Grace finds herself not only the keeper of tremendous power, but the only person in the world able to wield it. 
Seth McPhee is a monster on the hunt and his prey has never been more seductive. While Grace's powers will ensure his leadership in the underworld, her beauty will make her captivity a pleasure. 
Rushing to the rescue is Lucian, a man who is more than he seems. 
Will he prove to be the white knight that he claims, or is he just another beautiful monster?

My Opinion

Young adult novels never cease to amaze me! And what I love is that authors like Basso are constantly reinventing what it truly means to be an author. Also, I love the fact that true authors can give an entirely different spin on something that may have seemed played out and create such a masterpiece with their own creativity. 
Great job Basso!

Synopsis
If you could have the power to control evil, would you want it? 

In a rainy, misty town filled with moss-covered trees and dwarfed by wooded mountains, Astoria, Oregon, holds many secrets and eighteen-year-old Paige Reed is one of them. She’s immortal, has magical abilities she’s discovering, and harbors King Solomon’s power inside her. With his incantations, she can control the dark spirits who lurk among societies in soulless humans. 

But her problems are mounting. 

Her best friend slips into a coma, and Paige must tap into her newfound powers—powers she’s unsure of—to save her.

My Opinion

I have always been drawn to stories that have a dilemma so unbelievable that it puts me in the shoes of the characters themselves and that's how I feel with Ford's novel. Having the power to control evil makes a person feel responsible yet scared because the task itself seems daunting. Which is what makes this novel so appealing.
