Book Review of Spires by Briar Lee Mitchell

Book Review

When a centuries-old vampire is finally released from his prison beneath a cathedral, will he seek revenge on the other vampires who put him there? Or will his release lead to his own destruction?

This book had a bit of everything. Horror. Mystery. Romance. From the very first page, I was sucked into the world the author created. I was intrigued by the idea of a vampire being freed after hundreds of years of entrapment and what might happen once released, and the author didn’t disappoint.

Spires was very well written. The vampires were terrifying, god-like creatures, the stuff of nightmares. And the ending was satisfying. If you like dark fantasy/horror with a bit of paranormal romance, then this book would be a good fit for you.

My rating: 4 stars

Book Review of The Mist by Stephen King

This was my very first time reading horror, my very first time reading Stephen King. I thought I should give it a try just to see what it’s all about. There were far too many unnecessary details that detracted from the story. Instead of expanding on the scary, gruesome details or adding more of them throughout the book, we get details that don’t even matter to the story.

It was interesting to try to understand what this kind of trauma could do to a person in a short amount of time. Could witnessing death and gore really affect the mind so much? It’s a good question to ponder.

I actually liked the book in a creepy crawly goosebumpy kind of way. The details that mattered had my heart racing, putting me on the edge of my seat. My main complaint would be to trim the fat and only include the meat. Four out of five stars.

My review: 4 stars
