I think it's fair to say I won't sleep for the next three days. I tend to stay away from thriller/horror due to my overactive imagination, but I'm a massive fan of Morrison's other works and knew it would be worth it. Sure enough, despite the serious creepy factor of this novel, I couldn't put Old Farmer's Road down. This author consistently delivers. It has a cool legend aspect to it which I loved. And two of the main characters will have chills running down your spine. Definitely recommended f ...more
This book. UGH. I had such HIGH hopes.
I’m not even sure how to begin this review. I picked up this book because of a book club I am in, but it sounded like a book I would pick up on my own anyway, so I was really excited about it.
Once I started reading though… I was immediately disappointed. AND I’M SO SAD ABOUT IT.
I REALLY wanted to like this book. I tried very very hard to like this book and I suppose I enjoyed some parts. SOME.

The premise of the story was great! Cecilia moves to a new to

"Just one more page..." That's what I kept telling myself as I was reading, yet I still couldn't manage to put this book down. I was captivated from the start all the way through the end. The frightening, terrifying ending that is probably going to haunt my dreams for a while. Squeamish readers beware; there is lots of gore and ickiness going on in this book, but for me, that just means that it's impossible to stop reading. "Just one more..." Good luck getting that creepy line out of your head!! ...more

The creepy urban legend about the old farmer, the soul-eaters known also as Impa, an unwilling victim turned into a murderer, a witch in the neighborhood, a grieving brother searching for the answer behind his brother's disappearance, the bloody murders and mysterious they're all connected will keep readers on the edge of their seat.

I'm a sucker for paranormal stories and I'm so glad I was given a free e-copy of this book from the author. I was hooked from the very first

I think anyone who likes horror or dark urban fantasies would really like a novel that involves these new creature and new rules.

I love the mystery that surrounds Old Farmer's Road. The build up is brilliant as it doesn't give too much away and strings the reader along, making us chomp on the bit for more.

Cecilia is a rebellious teenager who is dealing with a big move at the age of 17, which means she has to make new friends. Unfortunately, some friends have chosen her. Brother and sister Isaac

Horror is normally not my genre but once in a while I read something out of my wellness zone to get new impressions. I use my Amazon Prime for that, borrowing it, so if I don't like it it doesn't matter much and I decide mostly from the cover - and this time I didn't regret it. You never know where this story will take you next but one thing is for sure - it'll suck you deeper and deeper into the urban legend of the Old Farmer down the road, completely believable and compelling, and once again I ...more

Old Farmer's RoadI absolutely love this book! Some of my most favorite genres of books are horror, paranormal and thriller. This book has it all. The creepy factor is very high (and that is a good thing). This is the perfect story to read anytime but it is even more perfect right before the Halloween season. I love how the book starts out scary right from the beginning. Some authors take awhile to get the story going, which can be a little boring. I don't like to have to force myself to keep rea ...more

Not to be a spoiler and a tell all, this is a must read for all of those like me. I will say it caught my imagination right from the beginning. It sent chills down my arms and legs, and will recommend to all of my friends that read this genre. I feel that after reading this spine tingling tale, I want more of it. I feel like a kid playing in a lightning storm, all lit up from the excitement. Such an awesome author you are, with such imagination of bring the Child from the past meets What feeds t ...more

Wow......this book was an immense tale of heartpounding intrigue....a paranormal thriller that will leave you wide-eyed and breathless wondering if those creepy howls and twig snappings mean its your turn....
If you like it light and fluffy then this book is so Not for you....there's no romance and no HEA....there is a bit of a cliff there though that will leave you thinking ' - what..??!'
It is a dark thrill ride of epic proportions....

I recieved a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

If you're prone to nightmares, I highly recommend reading this book during daylight hours! This book will take you on one heck of a scary ride, full of twists and turns. Just when you start to think you have things figured out, you very quickly realize just how wrong you are. I enjoy reading a good horror story and if you do too, then Old Farmer's Road is for you.

Awesome story! I was hooked just from the description. This is the kind of book that you just have to keep reading until the end. From the very beginning you can feel the tension and futileness of ignoring the voices in their heads. Right down to the dog. Great book that will have you hooked and your nerves tingling.

I feel a little torn with this one, I definitely enjoyed the writing, and it was definitely fast paced enough for me to keep wanting to turn the pages. But with such a small cast, I felt like I wasn’t really able to fully appreciate or really have time to even digest the characters. While there was tension and high intensity, I felt at times that was just a mask and an attempt to cover up the very little attempt the author made to really flesh any of her characters out as much as I would persona ...more

If you like out worldly creatures this story is for you. It has murder, mystery, soul eating Impas, a witch and hope for saving a lost soul. It is a dark story and very intense.

Cecelia moves to Minneapolis with her parents after her father is caught cheating because her mother wants a fresh start. She makes friend with the boy next door, Isaac even thought his sister Elsie warns her to stay away.

Elsie and Isaac aren't your typical teenagers next door. They were born Impas, also known as soul ea

I was really glad I won this book. I have heard of this author before even though I have not read any of her work before. When I read the synopsis I figured it would be something that I would really enjoy.
Cecilia and her family moved to a small town in Minneapolis and we learn that Cecilia is a troubled teen or at least it seems that way with her mother.
When she first sees her neighbor Isaac she is a bit intrigued especially when she is told to stay away from him via his sister Elsie. Isaac and

Need a spooky midnight read to get your blood going? Then... READ THJS! :)

So, I love love love scary, and this book provided me with just that. It is a very cool story about an urban legend. I don't think I've read a book about one before. Now surely the author had to have added extras into it to make it into a full novel. And boy oh boy. This is one you will surely need to read with the lights on and the dog in the other room. Hehehe. You'll see why.

YA Paranormal/Horror

Old Farmer's Road has a great cover!

Cecilia moves to Minnesota from L.A. with her parents. She is sad and misses her friends and her boyfriend Glenn. Cecilia meets the kids next door, Isaac and his overbearing sister Elsie. Elsie is bossy, rude and seems to really not like Cecilia. Isaac on the other hand is friendly, if a bit weird, and seems to want to welcome Cecilia.

The fist chapter grabs you and pulls you in keeps you on the edge of your seat. The only bad thing I could say about this is that that should have been the epilogue. Then the book goes into the story of Cecelia she is the new girl in town and is very unlucky to be moved in next door to Isaac and his sister Elise. Isaac is determined she is the one and wants her by their side. Elise is a control freak and hates everyone, but her brother. People are wondering why the kids in town are disappearing ...more

This is a dark tale about teenagers who are immortal. An unsuspecting teen girl moves into a new neighborhood and befriends the two kids she assumes are the “cool kids”. It doesn’t take long before you realize there is something supernatural going on with these kids. The question is, do they want her to join them or do they want to feed on her?

This dark tale holds no happy ending, but will leave you wondering if you should really say hi to that seemingly nice kid moving in across the street.

Perfect book to finish right before bed

This book starts out scary and never let you down . A good horror, that starts off sounding like a ghost story around the campfire . And quickly grows from there. One more, just one more chapter, before I go to bed. Sweet dreams!!!

This is a dark and spooky story that is well written and thought out. I usually am not a fan of dark and scary books, but, I just could not put Old Farmers Road down. Also, keeping the lights on while I read helped. Great story, I would read her next books too.
