*chefs kiss*

It's like if Neil Gaiman and Haruki Murakami had a beautiful word baby. This is a surrealist masterpiece in the making and I absolutely cannot overstate what a delightful treat this chapter has been for me. I am completely enthralled.

Made my Binge List

I usually write a review when the story is finished, but I've got to say, I love the MC. She just wakes up and chooses to live her most outrageous life every day and I'm here for it. It's an unapologetic and brutal story. It's such a bingeable read. It's so easy to get sucked into this crazy world and all the while sit at the edge of the seat wondering what's going to happen next. It's my favorite kind of story. Unpredictable, wild and just a bloody good time.

My Kind of Spooky

I love spooky stories. I love interesting characters with interesting relationship dynamics. I especially love when these two things come together. I'm still reading and let me tell you, I am invested. I'm the type of person who likes to theorize and guess where the story is going and the author has so subtly left these little bread crumbs that makes me believe things aren't what they seem to be. Is the narrator even reliable? Is the world even what it seems to be? That's the joy of reading this for me. It's a nuanced telling of a very classic story. Truly a joy. So turn off the light and start reading already.

Sexy, Alluring, Riveting

I usually don't write reviews for WIPS, but this one here made my binge list. It's sexy and thrilling and has me on my toes. Philip is a treat. He's enticing, delicious and charming. Sophie is an equal delight. She's intelligent, quick-witted and oh so spicy. These two character dropped into a quick paced, high stakes plot? Stop reading this review and go read this story. Seriously.

I'm hooked

Chere beautifully juggles creating the background for a sympathetic, but deeply flawed character and a wonderfully frightful, complex world that creates a naturally tense, hopeless situation. There is no reliance on cheap tricks or shock value. It's truly horror at it's finest. This kind of writing has been missing from horror for so long and I'm so glad I got to experience this. Candyman is a classic and Chere has done justice to the legend. I can't wait for more.

Still developing

I don't usually like to write reviews so early on in stories because the plot and characters are still developing. As of right now, the story is well written. Like all stories, it can use some polishing, but I'm sure that will come later. The plot, as of now, feels like the average teen dystopian novel. Nothing really stands out about it to me, but again, there're only a few chapters so anything can happen. I haven't seen enough of the characters to have an opinion on them really. The main character Elle is the tough girl survivalist with a reluctant soft side. There isn't a whole lot to say about her traveling companion as of yet. Overall, it seems like a fun read, but there isn't anything that makes it stand apart from the other books in its genre.

Eerie and Unsettling

I enjoyed this. I feel like Sarah Johnson has a bigger story to be told. She's a compelling character, both creepy and unnerving. Even if she doesn't get her own novel, I would like to see more of her in the short. (**SPOILER ALERT**) It feels like there is a gap between where the boy goes missing and Sarah has him. I would like to see that interaction. Then, the fact that the police know where the boy is makes me believe that Sarah has been leaving behind breadcrumbs. I'd love to read that story.
