“Once I started reading it,I couldn't put this book down. At times I actually laughed out loud, particularly at one scene that involved a killer and his inner monologue. The main characters had very believable dynamic as a killer hunting duo. Just the start of a series that is sure to be exciting."
Chantele BelamourThey've seen some 💩
What would you do if the slashers from horror movies didn't stay inside the screen? That is one of the main premises of this book, with that sentence it already made me very curious about what could happen, I felt that it was something original that at least I hadn’t read before.
We’ll meet our main characters, Crimson, Lance and Lexi, each with a well-established personality, and with many mysteries in their pasts. Crimson has a goal and is not going to stop until he achieves it.
It gives us various points of view of characters, not only the protagonists, but also others like the slashers, it is very interesting because you get to be in their minds and also know what they think, at the same time it expands the story and there are many mysteries to be solved. The last chapters were my favorites, I was hooked on the story and all I wanted was to know what would happen. And there are many things that no one expect, I want to share with you one of my favorite quotes from the book "Is it possible to be a hero and a monster at the same time?"
Something that I really liked was the details by the author of adding certain file notes, I feel that it helped us a lot to get to know the characters better and give us interesting information for the development of the plot, as well as the backstories of the slashers, when each of these files came out I was excited to read them.
And there are also a few illustrations which are amazing.
The entire book felt like a roller coaster of emotions. This series has a lot of potential to be something big. I hope to read the book 2 soon because there are still many things to discover. YOU MUST READ IT, IT'S TOO GOOD.
Izzy Vega Amazing and Original story!!!
"Those villains—or Killers, as we call them—are real, and we do what we can to derail them as much as possible."
Colt Crimson and Lance Emerald hunt killers that mysteriously materialize from horror movies and wreak havoc in the real world. Through meticulous preparation, research, and training, this tactical duo targets walking nightmares like Scarecrow Brady and Isaac the Killer Marionette, setting traps for their destruction. In this first installment of the series, new recruit Lexi hopes to prove herself against these murderous foes. In her youth, she survived an attack by a horror movie killer who attacked her at a party, and she narrowly escaped with the help of Crimson and Lance. Haunted by the trauma, she channels her hope and recovery into fighting killers and saving lives. As she embarks on her first mission, she learns many lessons in a horror-filled cornfield fighting the scarecrow killer.
Peel dispenses horror film tropes in this unique urban fantasy series. This story pays homage to horror with humor and thrilling action and adds a fresh take on the genre that caters to familiarity but bursts through with new hair-raising thrills. The characters are well-developed, with original voices that come alive through first-person narration. Profanity-laced machismo marks the characters with swagger and renders them believable as hunters that kill. Crimson and Lance's encyclopedic knowledge of horror movies makes them reliable experts when the killers come to terrorize real-life communities, vulnerable families, and rebellious teenagers. For some, horror movie killers coming to life is their worst nightmare, but for others, it's the opportunity of a lifetime. Not everyone feels helpless against terrors in cornfields, closets, and sleepovers. The powerful commentary about how fear drives evil but also generates opportunities for bravery offers intriguing and thought-provoking themes for readers."
