This is where you really get to know Scotty Cade, the person. There's probably more information here than you'll ever want to know, but here goes: I started my life in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, better known as the Big Easy and was raised along with my two sisters in a very small neighborhood along the mighty Mississippi River. I was undeniably a momma's boy and enjoyed a lot of alone time with my stay-at-home mother before my younger sister was born, while my older sister was at school and my Dad was working. I spent fun days doing chores around the house riding on the back of my mother's vacuum cleaner singing Etta James songs. When the chores were done, we settled down for story time and I truly believe that my love of reading and eventually writing was born. But all that came to a horrible end when my baby sister was born and I no longer had Mom all to myself. Then another horrible incident almost ruined my life, my sixth birthday and the first grade. Oh Boy, did I hate going to school. I went, but I went kicking and screaming literally every morning until I was seven, my poor mother. Having to share my mother with my newborn sister and having to attend school left us very little time together and I truly felt deserted, but I really showed her, I jumped ship into my Father's world. I was the only boy, so it was the logical next step. Happy again to be the center of someone's world, I soaked it up everyday. My father raised quarter horses as a hobby and some of my fondest memories surround that time in my life. When we were older, on weekends the entire family would pack up the horses and head to local horse shows where, my father, my younger sister and I would compete in barrel racing and cutting. But my most cherished memories are of my father and me taking long horseback rides along the levies of the river enjoying sandwiches and snacks prepared by my mother. We spent long summer days of riding and jabbering about this or that or just enjoying a comfortable silence. It wasn't really the conversation or the silence that was important to me, but the interest he took in my life that thirty five years later, still makes my heart swell. After a brief marriage, one of those special moments is where I found the nerve to come out to my Father, one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. He did much better than I did and in the end wanted only my happiness. He's been nothing but supportive and non-judgmental of my lie.

This book touched me in so many ways. Reading this book did open old wounds for me, but it left me with a sense that I'm never alone.
I loved the blend of history and paranormal all mixed together with romance. When Frink and Counter meet Hepp and Shull, they had no idea what would be set in motion. Even though the majority of the story is set around the four friends, Bo, Cy, Duff, and Lockey in present day, what went down in the past hovers over the entire story. Love, friendship, betrayal(at least in one character's perception), and a certain level of creepiness that makes this a perfect read for lovers of October scariness but will make a great read any time.
