REVIEW: HALLOW'S WEEN BY REX JAMESON


HALLOW'S WEEN
REX JAMESON
GENRE: YA


SYNOPSIS

Talented teenage witch Chloe Hallow seeks the heart of the love of her life, but when her attempts at a normal conversation fail, she falls back on what she knows best: alchemy. The resulting spell leaves an indelible stain on the small magical community of Squirrel Hill, but every year, her enduring legacy touches the world.







MY TAKE

4 STARS

Hallow's Ween was a short and fun story to read. During the prologue, the author leads you to believe that this story is more of a non fictional work along the lines of a fable that he's modernized about the true origin of Halloween. For those that don't realize this, it could be a bit misleading.

The story itself was a fun, quick read for me. Chloe desperately seeks the attention of a boy named Jacob. So much so, she decides to make (what she thinks) is a sort of love potion. Needless to say, it goes horribly wrong. Because this is modernized fable of course there is a moral—be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. You know it's going to end badly.

On a side note, I'm not crazy about the cover art. 

*I obtained this copy through LibraryThing's Member Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review.
