Fae Book Tours presents: THE HAUNTING SEASON by Michelle Muto - review, excerpt, & giveaway!


Be careful what you let in…
Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Jess, who talks to ghosts, quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects. One is a girl possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who really knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead. The study soon turns into something far more sinister when they discover that Siler House and the dark forces within are determined to keep them forever. In order to escape, Jess and the others will have to open themselves up to the true horror of Siler House and channel the very evil that has welcomed them all.

 Inside the Sorrel-Weed house, the inspiration for THE HAUNTING SEASON


A_TiffyFit's Review:
Horrifying. Scary. Gave me heart palpitations. Exciting. Mystifying. And a lot more! One of the best scary books I've read in a long time and what a way to return to the genre! Just gotta read it to understand. In the midst of all this fright is a bit of romance, too, that was just enough to make this book even more tantalizing. A multitude of heightened emotions is definitely the secret recipe for this excellent, frightful novel. Fantastic and amazing, it is hard to put down once you start. And when you do in the middle of the night, sneaking your way in the dark to the bathroom, you suddenly have this urge to turn on every single light in your house as if that will make you feel safer. LOL I recommend this highly and give it five shining stars! I know I'm not talking about the plot at all, but I am fearful that if I say ONE WORD, it will give it away. I will definitely be on the look out for more books from Michelle Muto. If they are anything like THE HAUNTING SEASON, I can't wait to get a hold of them! 


ABOUT THE AUTHOR 
Michelle has always loved storytelling. When she was a child, her favorite stories were of monsters and things that lurked in the dark. Telling stories often frightened her classmates and got her into a lot of trouble with her teachers. They had no sense of humor.

As an adult, Michelle traded her love of writing for the corporate life where she was an IT professional. Today, she's doing what she loves best - writing and storytelling.

Michelle grew up in Chicago, but currently lives in NE Georgia with her husband and their two dogs. She loves scary books, funny movies, sports cars, chocolate, dogs, and changes of season.

EXCERPT


Something stirred under the bed again and she took a few safe steps away from the bedskirt. 
“Jess!” a child’s voice whispered. Her heart in her throat, Jess bent down and carefully lifted the bedskirt, nearly tumbling backward at the sight. Gracie looked out from under the bed, then slid the Ouija board forward. 
She wasn’t afraid of the girls, but that didn’t make her any less nervous. Jess still rationalized that good ghosts could be trapped in the same location as evil ones. If Grams appeared inside Siler House right now, Jess would still be jumpy. No, what scared her was that the girls had shown up under the bed.
“Geez, Gracie! You scared the crap out of me!”
Gracie’s bottom lip took on a pout. “We didn’t mean to scare you. But she scares us. We’re sorry Allison won’t help you. She doesn’t want to help us, either.”
Jess took in a steadying breath. “It’s okay. I’m fine now. Hey, we were just talking—”
“We said we’d help,” Gracie interrupted, still staring unblinkingly at Jess. She pushed the board forward another inch. “Don’t be mad we took it.”
Jess’s hands shook slightly as she took the Ouija board and planchette Gracie offered her. She’d explain about taking the board to Dr. Brandt later. Maybe he wouldn’t notice if it was gone for a few hours. “Thanks,” Jess managed to say.

Gracie smiled, then scooted backward, disappearing behind the bedskirt. From underneath the mattress came the sound of Gracie and Emma’s echoing laughter.
