The Book of Secrets Part 1 by Faith Mitchell

A book of a strong man in slavery, how he died, and how he got back at the future of the man who killed him.

Synopsis

The ghosts of past atrocities haunt the island of St. Pierre, and legends about the spirits have been passed down through the generations. One of the most beguiling stories is the tale of the book of secrets a mysterious manuscript that gives its wielded enormous power but at an incredible expense.

Finch Waters is fascinated by the stories. When she joins her college professor’s research expedition to the island, she immerses herself in the region’s folklore. Little does she know that someone on her team is obsessed with the magic of St. Pierre and is intent on discovering the book’s centuries-old hiding place.

As Finch grows closer to discovering the truth surrounding the book of secrets, she faces a choice that could have dangerous consequences for everyone she cares for. The book of secrets holds knowledge not meant for mortals, and that power could prove to be deadly.

I truly loved this story. It was a story of slavery and a man named Big Jack. Big Jack was accused of a crime that he did not commit, but to see his new baby who lived at another island. He was beaten, murdered, and dismembered.

But, what they did not know was that he had a book that put a curse on his body. A curse that protected him. Big Jack was an amazing man, and he was there to overcome a battle between the man who was related to the man who killed him, and the heroine who was determined to protect the book of secrets by Big Jack.

Do you like a book with some history? Some suspense and horror? This is the book for you.

Day 31 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Stephen King

Yup, I saved the best for last . . . The King . . . Stephen King. Who else could it be? The guy who delivers the stuff of nightmares. Nothing cuddly, nothing cute . . . Just down right terrifying.

Everyone has a favorite Stephen King novel. I have a couple. The Shining, and Christine. Now, the story hits close to home, as my husband’s car actually tried to kill me . . . A couple of times. It never liked me.

It? Eh. Carrie? Um, YEAH!!! The Green Mile? Still tugs at the heart strings. I read it once, thought the movie might be a lighter. Nope. Scarred me right to my core.

Everyone has at least one of the based-on-the-book movies, my daughter loves It. I personally cannot read/watch it. I had a clown head for a bank when I was a kid, and it still terrifies me just thinking of it.

As you can see, I love Stephen King. And I had to save him for last. His stories are overly dramatic, and/or extremely terrifying.
