Even though it's not a Halloween story, I think Author L. X. Cain's new novel BLOODWALKER is a good one to share with you this Halloween. If you haven't read it yet, why not?

A circus is fun for both children and adults, right? Wild animals, magic shows, and clowns make people laugh and have a good time. So what happens when children start disappearing when the circus comes to town, bringing horror and fear instead of joy and pleasure?
In Author L. X. Cain’s new novel BLOODWALKER, Rurik, once a circus strong man, until lightning struck him leaving him scarred and ugly and who is now security guard for the circus, sets out to discover the fate of the children. Rurik stole my heart. Even though his outward appearance is scary, inside he’s a gentle man who cares for others. I was with him every step to keep other children safe from the killer.
In addition to seeing the story through Rurik’s eyes, Sylvie, a Bloodwalker, has a story of her own. As a Bloodwalker, she prepares the dead for burial, a custom of her ancestry. She’s also the victim of a bad marriage with a man that beats her and who she wants to escape from. Sylvie is a sweet, sympathetic character, the opposite of Rurik.
There are some pretty gruesome scenes in BLOODWALKER. The author also adds a tender romance. This is a beautiful story of love, loyalty, and regret, as well as secrets, curses, and survival.
L.X. Cain’s writing is vivid with descriptions that put the reader in the story. I read very few creepy novels, but I’ve enjoy the author’s short stories so knew this novel would be a good one. I was right. Recommended. I think you’ll enjoy BLOODWALKER too. Maybe read it with the lights on.###
