Reaper: A Horror Novella 
Publication Date: April 19th, 2019
Genre: YA Horror/ Novella

THE BOOGEYMAN IS REAL Gregory and his little sister Imogen love spending Halloween with their parents. But this year is different. If he proves he can take care of Imogen all by himself, he’ll finally have the allowance he’s dreamed of. That was before the basement door opened on its own. Before the strange door appeared in the basement and Imogen was taken from him by the monster. Now everyone in town is blaming him for her disappearance, but no one is listening to his story. Where did the door come from? What was that creature? And most of all, can he find his sister before it’s too late, or will he bury his memories of her along with his parents?


Rating: 4 out of 5 fairies


Review: An absolutely chilling novella (great for young adult or middle grade). However, I feel like it didn't reach its full potential by being cut short into a novella. I think expanded this could easily be a five out of five. I felt like the ending was a bit rushed after all the buildup. Overall a great quick read for a dark and stormy night.

Excerpt
Call me a scaredy cat all you want, but there was always something about the basement that I didn’t like. It always made me feel like I was being watched, like there was some thing in the shadows just waiting for me to make a wrong move. Even now, the frigid air crept over me, creating more goosebumps on my arms and legs. I quickened my strides up the stairs, Imogen dragging behind. We were halfway up the stairs when the knocks stopped. For a moment, I stopped my climb. The house was eerily quiet, and for reasons I can’t explain I felt a sudden urge to hurry back upstairs. I charged forward, trying to pull Immy along with me, but she resisted. “Too fast!” she whined. “If you hurry, we can play dress up sooner, now come on!” I yanked on Immy’s arm, practically lifting her into the air. Seven steps. Just seven more steps and we could look back on this night and laugh it off. Seven, six, five. Almost there. I was just three steps away from the door when I leaped for the landing. I’ll never forget that jump. Time seemed to stand still, as if those cold icy fingers in the air had somehow found a way to slow time down. I remember that I had a smile on my face, a smile that disappeared when the door slammed shut in my face.
