Synopsis for Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel

Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts’s, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity.

Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don’t go quite as planned, it’s a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches’ latest vile scheme.

My review for Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel

I have to admit, when I found this little gem at Target, I squealed like a little girl. Of all of the Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus has and always will be my favorite. So, of course, I had to get it. I opened it up as soon as I got home, and I absolutely adored it. It was cute (as always), and laughable. I could not wait to rave about this for my Halloween series! It had the original characters, plus some, like zombies. And everyone is sent to Hell (which I was shocked to tell you the truth), but the way the characters acted, I am glad that the author stuck with their personalities.

About A. R. Kahler

The first two books in The Immortal Circus trilogy – Alex Kahler’s debut novels for adults – have been international bestsellers in serial form. Martyr, the first book in his post-apocalyptic YA fantasy series called The Hunter, will be published by Spencer Hill Press in the Fall of 2014. Like Viv and the troupe, Kahler is a wanderer. As an aerialist, he has toured with circuses across America and Europe. Travel enables him to experience the wild and wonderful world, from drumming with Norse shamans to dangling from unexpected rafters. He received his master’s in creative writing from Glasgow University. Kahler writes, climbs and spins dreams in Seattle.

Synopsis for The Immortal Circus

Murdered contortionists aren’t exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can’t quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded – because forever means something quite different at the Cirque de Immortals.

Aided by her friends Kingston – a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart – and his sarcastic assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past – and future – than she bargains for.

The show’s just beginning.

My Review for The Immortal Circus

I loved The Immortal Circus. I loved the characters (especially Kingston), I loved the scene that was set. I loved the plot, and how everyone was tied into the circus in some way. Of all creatures, faes are my favorite. I have never read a book about Fae that was set like this. It was very interesting. Normally I don’t put a book like this in my Halloween series as it really was not scary, but because of the characters and the plot, I thought it was fitting. If you like the Fae or anything with magic, I recommend this to you!
