My Rating: ★★★★★
Haunted Halls by M. Raiya
Publisher: Less than Three Press
Main Characters: Evan and Gabriel
This is my second M. Raiya book, and just like the first one, Silver Pearl, I also loved Haunted Halls. I can now confidently say that I am a fan. On both books, M. Raiya offered something new to me, suffice to say that I’d be reading more of her works in the near future. ❤
Haunted Halls is such a bittersweet story.
It is … different. Good different. At least for me. I don’t know, I can’t explain it well. I loved the blurb of the book so much so I grabbed it and read it at once. Finished it in one sitting. And my heart hurt, unbelievably, even hours after reading this. It still does every time I remember Evan’s and Gabriel’s story.
I kind of already had an idea of how it was going to end so I was bracing myself for it. And when it did happen, well, I was happy for the both of them but then a part of me was still sad.
Okay so I know what I’m probably saying is nonsense, lol. But I don’t want to spoil the story for you. And I know the story ended very well, but I still want to read more about them. What can I say, I really fell in love with Evan (he’s such a brave, brave person) and Gabriel (oh, that knight-in-shining armor persona — quite adorable).
Looking forward to reading more of M. Raiya’s works. 🙂
Oh, and did I mention how much I love the cover, too? ^____^
College should be a blast for Evan: Same state where he grew up, just a few hours from home, tuition is free, and there’s nothing but new experiences and opportunity in front of him. All he feels is homesick, alone, and adrift. Whatever thrills his roommates eludes Evan.
He is distracted from his misery by Gabriel, who seems to come and go in the blink of eye. But he’s beautiful, confident, proud—everything Evan is not. Most of all, he’s a mystery, and one that Evan is determined to solve…
About the Author:
M. Raiya lives on a dirt road in northern Vermont with her family, surrounded by woods and streams and old stone walls. These elements soak into her writing in strange ways. Sometimes her writing is just strange on its own. You can find her blog at mraiya.blogspot.com.
