8 Souls by Rachel Rust is a YA Paranormal Romance full of unsolved murders and a girl who can’t help but feel them..
“All her life, seventeen-year-old Chessie has had recurring dreams about a little white farmhouse. Quaint? Not quite. The house is the site of the unsolved murders of Villisca, Iowa, where eight people were slaughtered in 1912. With her parents on the verge of divorce, Chessie is stuck spending the summer with her grandparents in Villisca—right across the street from the axe murder house.
She’s soon hearing voices calling out for help and begins unraveling a link between herself and the town’s bloody history. And when she falls for a cute boy harboring a big secret, the pieces fall into place as she at last discovers the truth of Villisca’s gruesome past…”
I loved this book!
The writing style immediately caught my attention. There is so much dark suspense surrounding the main character and her ability to see the murder of EIGHT people.
I really enjoyed seeing the intricate puzzle all come together throughout the book. There are tons of creepy nightmares and haunting scenes that make this a great book to read during my favorite Fall season.
I gave this book a full 5 out of 5 stars! This is definitely my cup of tea when it comes to bookish content. The psychological aspect helped to create a uniquely vivid world that I wish I could read more of and has perfectly complimented my Netflix binge of Criminal Minds.
I highly recommend this book to readers who love mystery, darkness, and a dash of romance.
