Ever heard of Slender Man?
They say he is always there. They say he is always watching. A tall guy in a suit and tie, with no face, and arms like tentacles.
Some say he is an online myth; others will go very far to prove he is real, so far that they might even kill for him.

The storyline is predictable, but also weird and slightly ridiculous. And the writing is really bad. The technique as well as the language. To be fair, I don't think English is necessarily her first language, but she could seriously use an editor. It was all clunky and wordy and just didn't flow well.
Anyway, I finished it. And I won't be reading this author again. Bechdel Test: Pass. ...more

Overall, I found Slenderman a bit of a mixed bag. There were a few scenes I enjoyed (I found Ulrik's story to be a highlight of the novel) and a few good moments as the tension built around the murders and the looming threat towards Emma.
However, there were a few things I disliked and feel I need to be critical about such as the rushed, unsati ...more
The series just continues to get better with each book. In this book, not only does Emma continue to struggle with getting her family put back together, but there is a new mayor, who definitely has more secrets in her closet. You need to read the complete series, to know what is in the hidden past of the mayor. also, Victor, Emma‘s son, reveals another hidden talent that he possesses.
This installment to the series was less disturbing than some of the others with the language cl ...more

I am not a big mystery fan, bought the book because of its title. Thought it was going to be more of a horror story. It turned out to be a page burner. Great heroine and very unexpected ending. Read the second half of the book in one sitting.
And as "Slenderman" killings was slightly newsworthy at the time, I grabbed the bargain it was.
Now that I have come to read the book, I have discovered this is book #9 in the Emma Frost series.
Yes, I have missed books 1-8, so obviously I am coming in a bit cold here.
Since it is book 9, not much of the way of introductions to the "main" characters. As this book involved 20+ characters, it took a while to work out who we were suppos ...more
This is my first time reading the author.
I enjoyed Slenderman. I chose to read it because I’m familiar with the legend of the character and thought it would make an interesting read.
I wouldn’t say this is the best book I’ve ever read but it’s not the worst. I found it a quick, easy read and not too taxing.
Slenderman has very short chapters which were easy to read.
The characters are okay, they were a bit one-dimensional at times.
Slenderman is really about ...more
This book had a decent storyline at the beginning, but I was bothered by more than a few things towards the end. The whole notion that a psychopath could run for mayor, and get away with everything she did, without anyone on a tiny island knowing about any of it, seems ridiculous at best. Second, how someone can get hit by a car, then "turn autistic" is incredibly close-minded. (I understand this was the diagnosis in 1966, but characters in 2014 said the same ...more
