Are you scared yet? You will be.
For Halloween, we have two different spooky packs of books. One set includes two of my absolute favorites — and one of those books scared the s#!t out of me when I read it as a kid … and still does. Another is a heartwarming story about a dog, a man, a woman, their romance … and the freaky-ass mutant killer coming after them.
The name on the second pack is just as familiar, I’m sure, and features the first two books in a trilogy that reminds me very much of everything I love about the books mentioned above: romance (of course), a small town terrorized by a demonic force, characters that you’re praying get out of there alive, and kids who faced the horror once and have grown up to face it again.
Vote for your favorite. The winner will receive the most popular choice, along with a copy of any title from my backlist (books 1-6 of the Guardian series — this does not include Demon Bound.)
My backlist suggestion: I’m not sure which book has the creepiest/scariest scenes. In “Falling for Anthony” I remember creeping myself out imagining Colin as a weak, starving vampire crawling around the bed and then attacking Emily — and the part with the nosferatu on the battlefield … poor Anthony. In DEMON ANGEL, the scene with Lilith and Lucifer still freaks me out a little — and I blame that on Stephen King, because he’s the one that made me fear kindly-looking people. WILD THING has the scene where Lucas realizes he’s not with the woman he thought he was, and has no choice but to go with her … and, yeah, the part where Selah gets her arm chopped off is gross. I listed some of DEMON MOON’s moments in Wednesday’s post, and the glimpse of Chaos we get is almost enough — and of course, there’s the part where Sir Pup eats the wyrmwolves. Bleh. I could barely write the scene in DEMON NIGHT when Charlie is in Sammael’s SUV; I knew what was going to happen, and I didn’t want it to. Then in FIRST BLOOD, the first meeting between Annie, Jack, and the nephil still gives me the willies. So … any one of them fits, I guess.
DEMON BOUND is easily my most Halloween-y book. There’s spiders, even bigger spiders in Hell, Alice, crazy Guardians, skeletons, and lots of blood. (And it might be out now — I’ve heard reports of it in Borders, so if you did want to find it this weekend, you probably could.)
If you don’t have a Borders near you, don’t want to wait until tomorrow to see if you’ve won the spooky book pack, and are looking for more Halloween fun, you might try the HIGH MOON anniversary celebration (it ends tomorrow, but the comic is always available for free online. You can’t go wrong with a werewolf western.) The Book Smugglers are having a week-long Halloween event with reviews of at least two of the books offered today. I know there are lots of other events going on — feel free to leave a link in the comments!
