  Good morning peeps , well it sure doesn't feel like September out there today . Its going to hit 95 degrees F out here on the the farm today . A great day to sit in the house with a good book . Today I have for you a new author to me . Angel Van Atta and her horror book  THE CHILD. 

                            BOOK BLURB

 Sarah is worried. More than just worried. Sarah is terrified. Her young daughter, Emma, hasn't been acting herself lately and it's getting harder and harder to keep the whole thing under wraps. Especially when Nadine, the nosy neighbor from next door, is starting to suspect something and Sarah's sister, Jess, just shows up unexpectedly, making everything even more difficult for Sarah. If there is one thing that Sarah does understand about Emma, one thing that she is absolutely sure of, it's that she loves her more than words could ever say and that she would do anything to protect her child. Will her mother's love be enough to save her little girl and will she be able to figure out what happened to her precious child before it's too late to bring her back?

                         MY REVIEW

  Sarah is one terrified mom, he daughter Emma hasn't been herself lately and it is getting harder to keep it under wraps. When her nosey neighbor starts to suspect something isn't just right . Then her sister shows up and just makes everything even more difficult . The one thing that Sarah does know for sure that she loves Emma and will do anything to keep her child safe and let her know that she is loved unconditionally. But will her love be enough to keep Emma safe and bring her back from what ever is holding her hostage. 

   This is one of those books that have such good characters .Sarah is a mom who has lost her husband and now her child isn't the child she was before . Sarah is worn out she is just tired of what she has to do to keep Emma safe . But deep down inside her she is a strong woman with a fight in her . She will take on what ever is going on and win. Emma well what can you say about her , she is well she really isn't human . She may come off as sweet at times but she is calculated and actually a scary menace to those people she thinks have wronged her . There are moments when you see the sweet little girl that she is but those are far and few between. Jesse is the big sister who comes to the rescue of Sarah and Emma . She is a no nonsense woman who shows up at the right time. She is like the breathe of fresh air that Sarah and Emma needed . The characters are so well written and complex the author has balanced the empathy and the sympathy for each character .

  This is one of those book where once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down . It starts out as an extreme horror book , trust me do not read the first couple of chapters before bed . Then is kind of morphs into a folk lore / horror book . I really got sucked into the story and was on the edge of my seat most of the time . Emma really kind of creeped me out but at the same time I really just wanted to wrap her up and hug her . The characters are very well written and you will love or hate them depending on moment in the story . I think you should add this book to  your fall reading list . So check it out if you love some good ole horror.
