Book Description

As Halloween approaches, a mysterious girl named Claudia returns to the small town of Haven, Texas. Paul Graves, a childhood friend, discovers the way to her dark heart is through a lunchtime investigation of a series of local murders. Their research soon leads them to the discovery that Paul’s father, a former sheriff, and his uncle, a local priest, have a thirty-five-year-old connection to the serial killer. When the killer targets Claudia and his family, Paul must overcome his own limitations to confront an ancient evil that spans generations.

In the grand tradition of Ray Bradbury and Stephen King, HALLOWED tells the story of a young man’s journey to adulthood and his ultimate confrontation with good and evil, life and death, love and sacrifice--a terrifying carnival ride with dark treats at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Plot with Thrills and Chills 16 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
While thrills and chills can make a horror novel good, the book has to have a plot. Hallowed by Bryant Delafosse not only has a strong plot, but it's a good one with lots of thrills and chills. If you're looking for a great Halloween read, look no further. Hallowed is old-school horror that Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Ray Bradbury fans will greatly enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 20 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wasn't sure when I first started to read this, as I got deeper into it the more I couldn't put it down. I think it's more a us book but as an adult I still enjoyed it. It's written from the point of view of a teenager, which was interesting. Also there was just the right amount of horror for me. Worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal with a Twist - Not Just for Kids 21 April 2013
By Susan Elizabeth Barton - eBook Review Gal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had a little trouble getting into this book at first. However, once I did it progressed nicely.

I would classify Hallowed as YA Paranormal Fiction, but I say this mostly because the two main characters are teenagers. Other than that, this book should appeal to adults as well.

Paul Graves is a likeable kid who lives in a small Texas town where not much happens. When a former childhood friend, Claudia (a Goth loner with some issues), moves back to town, Paul becomes her only friend. Soon after, a string of murders disrupts their sleepy town of Haven and Claudia begins tutoring Paul on the traits and techniques of the average serial killer. What starts out as a way to pass the time quickly becomes an activity that puts both Paul and Claudia in the crosshairs of a deranged killer.

Author, Bryant Delafosse, manages to weave several subplots within the story, which adds to the mix nicely and eventually ties things together. He also does a nice job of explaining some factual bits of some common and not so common religious practices, rituals and traditions. It was refreshing to read about Wicca, Spirituality and other Earth-based religions in a positive light for a change. The dialogue was believable, unlike some of the other YA novels I've read. Not once did I think, "a teenager would never say or do that".

I enjoyed this book and I wanted to give it five stars, but just couldn't. There were several typos, which I found a little jarring. The ending went on longer than I thought was necessary, but I still honestly feel it earned the four star rating. I could see Hallowed becoming a movie (even if only as a made for television movie), as it certainly had more substance than many of the paranormal and suspense-style movies being made today. I would definitely recommend Hallowed to readers interested in paranormal mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 26 Oct. 2012
By saguaroflower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had it all...it draws you in wanting to know who the killer is, why are they killing people the way they are, what are the secrets the adults are hiding..then it gets scary and creepy. I don't usually read this genre of books but I am glad I did! Scared the pants off of this old lady! Thanks for the best Holloween read in a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Story but... 1 Feb. 2013
By stitchywoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an engaging YA paranormal mystery. The characters are well-fleshed and likable. The author did his research and explained things very well. The first 75% of the book was terrific. The last 25% was slow. I was expecting a climax to match the excitement of the first portion of the book, but I was disappointed. It dragged and dragged and ended up being almost anti-climactic and not terribly original. I would have liked to have given this book a better review but it left me feeling bored.

3.0 out of 5 stars slow start - strong finish 30 Sept. 2013
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was like reading 2 different books. First it starts out as a believable story about 2 teenagers' emotional connection with very little suspense. Then at the end, it changes to a highly suspense-full paranormal story. I found the numerous typos very distracting!

By mom and teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It was disappointed in the direction this story went. Kind of off the deep end . Also found MANY editing errors. Very long journey to arrive at a disappointing destination.
