They rip, they tear, they FEED, and you never come back again.
Here’s how last year’s Gypsy Cob Music Festival should have gone. Lenora “Lenny” Ragno was supposed to rock her duet with her long-time crush, Jeb, during the open-mic competition. Then, swept up in the glow of success, he’d finally kiss her. Instead, Lenny choked on stage and spent the whole year dodging him online. And avoiding playing her fiddle in public. She thought her worst nightmare was behind her, but she was way wrong.
Now, she’s back at Gypsy Cob where avoiding a public performance is about as impossible as hiding from Jeb. She thinks facing him will be the scariest part of the festival, but when one of their friends talks everyone into trying astral projection, Lenny catches the eye of a demonic entity that marks her as its own.
Now, whenever it wants, the demon can pluck Lenny from her reality and transport her to a hellish between-world, haunted by its countless, gruesome victims. If she doesn’t want to become one of them, she must discover the nature of the demon’s hold on her and remove it. But how can she defeat a literal demon when she can’t even get over her personal ones?
Review: I gave this book 3 1/2 out of 5 stars! I really enjoyed this book, but it had really scary/spooky moments. I read half of this before bed and half of it during the light of day. I was still freaked out by some parts though. The music festival background was pretty cool. I’ve never been to a music festival like this one, so it took some getting used to. I found it super weird that there was a psychic at the music festival though. That didn’t really make sense to me though it set up the story pretty well. I liked that Lenny had to fight her inner demons and an outer demon. The outer demon was super creepy and the thing nightmares are made of. I’m glad I finished this book while it was daylight out because the descriptions of the other world and the demon were a bit frightening. The ending was a bit cheesy after all the drama and darkness we encountered throughout the whole book. This was perfect for a Halloween read.
Thank you to Netgalley and Leap Books: Shine for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
