Welcome to the blog tour for Crossfades, run by the lovely TLC Book Tours! The first thing that struck me about Crossfades, as soon as I opened the email about it was the killer synopsis. I knew as soon as I read the first few lines that I had to get my hands on this book, and I definitely made the right choice.
Crossfades is a short book, being just over one hundred pages, but it packs a lot into such a small space. There’s so much going on – I won’t say too much about what that is because I don’t want to spoil the story – but this book is dark, at some points even scary. There’s plenty of graphic horror, as well as a bit of that hair raising, make you need to switch the light on kind of horror too. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, Crossfades is definitely the book for you.
I love horror fiction, but sometimes I think the genre can get a bit repetitive – that’s absolutely not the case with Crossfades. It’s dark, different and completely draws you in. It also feels very realistic and believable, there’s a great amount of emotion and depth in the characters, even though we don’t get to delve into their minds for long. This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is one hundred percent worth the read.
While Crossfades is only a short novella, there is a sequel entitled Bleedovers, due for release in September. I am immensely looking forward to this, and can only imagine how horrific and fear filled book two will be. If you’re looking for something more exciting than a summer beach read, then I sincerely recommend Crossfades.
