Synopsis: All her life, seventeen-year-old Chessie has had recurring dreams about a little white farmhouse. Quaint? Not quite. The house is the site of the unsolved murders of Villisca, Iowa, where eight people were slaughtered in 1912. With her parents on the verge of divorce, Chessie is stuck spending the summer with her grandparents in Villisca—right across the street from the axe murder house.
She’s soon hearing voices calling out for help and begins unraveling a link between herself and the town’s bloody history. And when she falls for a cute boy harboring a big secret, the pieces fall into place as she at last discovers the truth of Villisca's gruesome past… (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: I love books like this! 8 Souls called to my horror loving heart. It was everything I hoped for when I saw the cover and read the synopsis. I had a lot of fun reading 8 Souls. It had that creepy vibe to it that I just loved. I really enjoyed the setting, the backstory, the backdrop of a place tainted by tragedy. I love reading stories like that. I get to live vicariously through a brave character who does things that I would never dream of doing because I'm a big chicken.
I really liked the writing in 8 Souls, it pulled me in and kept me turning the pages. I had to find out what was going on, what the secret of Villisca was.
I thought the romantic aspect to it was a lot of fun too. Most times books are better when they have a little romance.
I did not see that ending coming! What a twist! I really enjoyed it.
8 Souls was a win for me! If creepy and scary are your thing, I'd definitely recommend 8 Souls. I can't wait to see what Rachel Rust comes out with next.
