Book Review Nine Candles of Deepest Black by Matthew S. Cox

26832363

She saw it coming. She knew it would happen―but no one believed her.

Almost a year after tragedy shattered her family, sixteen-year-old Paige Thomas can’t break free from her guilt. Her mother ignores her, doting on her annoying little sister, while her father is a barely-functioning shell. He hopes a move to the quiet little town of Shadesboro PA will help them heal, but Paige doesn’t believe in happiness anymore.

On her first day at school, a chance encounter with a bullied eighth grader reawakens a gift Paige had forgotten, and ingratiates her into a pack of local outcasts. For weeks, they’ve been trying to cast a ritual to fulfill their innermost desires, but all they’ve done is waste time. After witnessing Paige touch the Ouija board and trigger a paranormal event, the girls are convinced another try with their new fifth member will finally work.

Once the darkness is unleashed, it’s not long before they learn it will give them exactly what they asked for―whether they want it or not.

Jan’s Review

This book was intensely creepy, keep you up all night, heart wrenching story.  When i started it i was expecting it to be creepy but this book had me shivering, screaming and feeling like ghosts lurked in the shadows.  If you want an book that gonna scare you then this one is perfect.   I really like how i was expecting it to be low key but the characters where really well developed, the relationships among the characters where very intense.  I really felt a part of the whole story and was on the edge of my seat the whole time.  Very well done.
