Book 1 Crystal&Bone
Cinderella Story Press 2010
Halloween is just a few days away. All 'hell' is about to break lose because Crystal has been consorting with the dead. You see Crystal is a witch and her best friend is dead. Her mother has told her never to associate with the dead but like most teenagers, she sees fit not to listen to her mother, and that includes not paying attention enough to learn her magic spells to close the portal to the afterlife. Crystal does not want to be trailer trash like her mother and has her sights set on community college.
Crystal's best friend Bones died way to young and is more then happy to assist Crystal so that she can remain among the living. A movie director is gathering followers for his horror movies and turning the teens into zombies by brain washing them. Someone is messing with Crystal's momma's potions because they don't want the portal closed. Crystal's boyfriend Pettagrew wants a commitment from her; but she has other plans.
This is just the story to get everyone in the Halloween spirit. We meet all sorts of characters, creatures from the dark side. magic spells, potions, and would you believe James Dean's unborn twin brother? Seriously folks, who could ask for more? All of the different characters, living and dead, all seem to have their own agendas. Crystal is a bit of a pain. On one hand she loves her mother; but on the other she doesn't want to be like her at all. Her so called best friend, Bones, really has no problems with betraying her friend. On top of that, she resents her friend because she is still alive. Then we have the shallow valley girl types. Talk about your mixed bag; they all come together for a bit of Halloween excitement.
I found the story quite entertaining and packed full of imagination. Scott Nicholson/L.C. Glazebrook come together to create a storyline packed with humor and one that you will not forget for a while. If you are in the market for a quirky Halloween story, I would definately recommend this one. Young and old alike can find enjoyment between the pages of October Girls.
I wish to thank Scott Nicholson for providing me with a copy to read and review. I was not compensated in any way except for the privilege of reading and reviewing the book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.
I give October Girls 4 out of 5 stars
