    A Great Frightening book

    All Hallows' Eve is a great scary book for young and old readers who loves to be scare. The book is actually split into 13 scary stories that will give you goosebumps and haunt you in your nightmares. Each story have a different character that are either killed or just lucky that they survived. Each story either have ghosts, witches, vampires,or werewolves. I would recommend this to any friend. What i really enjoyed about this book is the way the author made sure each 13 stories ended with a shocking surprise. Vivian Vande wrote the book really well she was sure that each story will shock you with fear. She is one of the best story writers i had ever read so far. I highly recommend this book to any reader.

    I have been a fan of Vivian Vande Velde ever since I read CURSES, INC. AND OTHER STORIES. I quickly followed that up by reading several of her other books, including NOW YOU SEE IT... and COMPANIONS OF THE NIGHT. Ms. Vande Velde is the master of spooky stories, whether they be contemporary, paranormal, or fantasy. What she's even better at, though, is writing short stories that have a way of staying with you long after you finish reading them. With ALL HALLOWS' EVE, the author has brought us thirteen original short stories that, as a whole, scared the bejesus out of me. Whether the story is two pages long or ten, you find yourself immersed in the life of whatever tale the author is telling--and find yourself coming out, at the end of it, glad you're reading with the lights on. The stories in this collection include: COME IN AND REST A SPELL MARIAN MORGAN ROEHMAR'S BOYS ONLY ON ALL HALLOWS' EVE CEMETERY FIELD TRIP BEST FRIENDS PRETENDING I WANT TO THANK YOU WHEN AND HOW WHEN MY PARENTS COME TO VISIT EDWARD, LOST AND FAR FROM HOME MY REAL MOTHER HOLDING ON There is nothing timid about this collection. I have always loved Halloween; it is, in fact, my second favorite holiday, beat out only by Christmas. After reading these short stories, though, I will never look at hay rides, cemeteries, school trips, cackling old ladies, or scarecrows on front porches in the same way. I read, on a regular basis, the stories of horror/paranormal authors Dean Koontz and Stephen King, and these stories by Vivian Vande Velde freaked me out just as much as those by my horror heroes. Be warned, though. Read MORGAN ROEHMAR'S BOYS, CEMETERY FIELD TRIP, and MY REAL MOTHER at your own risk--and with those lights on.
