Concoction of a Review:
The Hallowed Ones was an amazing adventure unlike any normal tromp through the woods.
The Mad Scientist fully admits that friends of the bookish sort on GoodReads pressured her into wanting, No, needing to read this one. An Amish book? One might ask but I have one small short answer for you! Undoubtedly!
Let me (us) examine the why's of why this book is highly recommended.
~If you want a book that you will be unable to put down...
This one will do that to you!
~If you want a book that will surely freak you out at a few points...
This one will do that!
~If you want a book about a genre you thought possibly couldn't get any better....
This book will do that for you too!
~If you want a book about the end of the world...
This one is without a doubt for you!
Now that we established a bit of a base to the this inky goodness I do believe I can continue forward.
I assure you that there are no vampires of the sparklely nature in The Hallowed Ones. They will freak you out, I am sure of this. As they did to myself, nearly ruffling the hairs on the back of my neck.
One of the bits that chill you to the bone... or at least the Mad Scientist's metal clockwork heart... being trapped. Nothing like being a chicken in a coop waiting for the fox to grab the tail feathers. The Amish were in a sense on lock down. This choice made me think that this might be the end of them, however, I knew that they would not want it any other way. Would the evil make it through or under their wooden fence? *Shivers* The results would stir even the gentlemanly of the gentlemen!
From the start, it is a bit slow.
From the end, the story is ripped apart.
