I love this series, and enjoyed this short, sweet Halloween story, although being a Badlands story, there was still plenty of action. The world building is fabulous, and I enjoyed how the author works in established myths and legends into the story.

I love Simon and Vic’s relationship and how they grow as a couple with each story. Vic is still figuring out Simon’s world, and I love how protective he is, how they both are. It figures that they take a different approach to Halloween. Vic’s passionate about it, while it’s just like another day to Simon, although often busier given his abilities. I also enjoyed seeing more of Pete, Simon’s friend and assistant in his shop, and I loved the ending.

I’d recommend this story to readers looking for a quick, low angst read with interesting characters, an engaging plot, and a supernatural Halloween read, although it’s one I will enjoy re-reading any time of year. 5 out of 5 stars.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
