My Thoughts on The Spirit of the Season by Somer Canon –
Set in a mall, readers follow the evening closing practices for two staff members; a mall security guard and a store manager.
Things seem pretty normal at first, but the security guard has some major internal distress going on.
As the tale continues, we learn more about how that night’s bloodbath was inevitable.
I was hooked with this tale immediately and as the dread built, I couldn’t help but read faster and faster to see what would happen!
My Favorite Passages from The Spirit of the Season –
While the seasonal change from verdant green to the warm, cozy colors of fall certainly had an aesthetic appeal that almost everybody seemed to like, the season of Halloween was a different creature altogether. It wasn’t anchored in an obligatory family gathering like so many other holidays, nor was it force-feeding the masses saccharine sentimentalities that were sometimes more hurtful than inspirational, especially to those who were alone in the world, like herself.
Time makes fools of us all, and it was her turn to experience that painful truth.
My Final Thoughts on The Spirit of the Season –
