The Haunting of Beatrix Greene by Rachel Hawkins, Ash Parsons, and Vicky Alvear Shecter is a horror story perfect story for the spooky season upon us.
Beatrix Greene is a charlatan, performing seances to bring comfort to others. She has no nefarious purposes behind what she does; it's just how she goes through life given her harrowing childhood. When Beatrix and her team are hired by James Walker to conduct a seance in Ashbury Manor, Beatrix believed she would be performing once again to help bring him comfort and closure. This story takes a horrifically frightening turn for the worst when Beatrix summons much more than comfort and closure.
During this story, the events that unfold are not for the faint of heart; they are grisly, disturbing, and wonderfully frightening. If you are looking for a horror story to read this season, look no further than The Haunting of Beatrix Greene. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys gruesome horror books. This book is a page-turner, making it a quick read. It seems that there could be a television series centered around this story, as episode numbers and titles delineate each chapter. If that is the case, we are in store for a horrifically satisfying series!
I gladly award The Haunting of Beatrix Greene 5 out of 5 stars!
I was looking for a thrilling horror book centered around a haunting, and this book was the perfect fit! That said, I will note that several events in the book are intense; those who are sensitive to blood, gore, horror, or graphic descriptions of death or dying will want to skip reading this book.
