By now I think it is widely known around these parts that I absolutely love Halloween and that October is my favorite month. I just love when the weather finally begins to cool, the leaves change colors, and hot cocoa weather begins! I also find the colder months much more conducive for reading… I find it hard to want to curl up with a book when it is 110F outside. (Goodbye summer!)

My love of the Halloween season is what drew me to want to create something fun for the book blogging community. This has been in the works since before I got involved in BLOGOWEEN, and I am so excited to finally release the information into the world!

Children of the Dark by Jonathan Janz

… is that really the ending? Is there a sequel? What the hell is going on? (I have since learned that this is a prequel to the Savage Species Series, so good. Time to read more!)

Friends, Jonathan Janz has done it again! Er, or whatever you would call it since this was published back in 2016. After reading and loving The Siren and the Specter, I had to read more from this author and picked this up on a whim (sorry, TBR). I have been in a bit of a horror kick lately and am so glad that I have found Janz’s work!

Local Legends that Demand a Book
