    So honestly, I'm constantly surprised by the comparisons between Vega and King. I don't really get it, except...they both write horror? This is a good, clean, YA novel. You have a girl who is a bit of an outsider with a past who moves to a small town and this town has secrets...secr...

    I had hoped to like this book more than I ended up liking it. One of the reasons for this was that it is classified as a horror story but it felt more like a contemporary with spooky vibes. One of my biggest problems with the story was that the main character, Hendricks, experienced un...

    The full review + more can be found at The Book Bratz I was super excited when I learned about The Haunted and couldn't wait for it to be published so I can finally get my hands on it to read it. Though I enjoyed The Haunted I did have issues with it. The Haunted is creepy, the...

    Read more of my reviews at Cornerfolds.com! I am a huge fan of The Merciless series! I read them as they were released and really enjoyed every one. I was constantly impressed with Vega's ability to write truly scary horror novels for a YA audience and was excited to pick up The Hau...

    A girl moves to a new home... only to find out that she and her family aren't the only ones living there. This my very first Danielle Vega book that I finished and liked. Wow. I kind of had given up this writer, I have tried all her books (at least the first books if it is a series)...

    3.0 Stars Video Review: https://youtu.be/46yjsV9yAqY As a huge of The Merciless, I was eager to check out the newest novel by Danielle Vega. I didn't expect to love this one as much as The Merciless, because I prefer exorcisms over haunted house. Yet, even with tempered expectations,...

    I?m a sucker for fixer upper stories. Especially haunted ones. This one had some hair raising moments and some fun surprises. Hendrick?s is uprooted and moved to a new town and new school. She quickly makes friends and starts to adjust to her new life. But things start happening...

    I have seen Vega's Merciless series in the book stores so often that I've almost... ALMOST... bought one. I'm not sure why I was hesitant.. maybe it's because I figured YA horror couldn't possibly be frightening... but these days I'm finding that I'm quite enjoying this mixed genre a...

    2.25/5 - miss Vega where?d my campy horror queen go - don?t get me wrong this book is creepy .. but it?s nothing like her other horror books which are INSANE and violent (in a fun way imo) and I LOVE them - When it was creepy it was creepy otherwise it was boring .. idk - ...

    This was a really fun haunted house story! It was suitably creepy and more than a little gory. There is some animal death so be aware if you are sensitive to that topic. It's more of a mention and not graphic or detailed violence to an animal. There is a lot of suspense and tension whi...

    pooled ink Reviews: So I'm going to be honest, I didn't finish this book. Even so, I would certainly recommend it. I read almost half of the book before I quit. But I didn't quit because I hated it or because it was dull or any of the usual negative reasons. I quit because this bo...

    Final buddy read of the year, sis! (Well, technically, maybe not. Maybe 2018 will be a doll and stretch itself out a wee bit so we can squeeze one more read...) Whichever, happy reading and happy closing of buddy reads for 2018. ...

    3.5 stars. I loved this book...until the ending. It was great and it would have been 5 stars all the way, except for the ending was just not right. It was a great haunting story, and for the most part I was really enjoying everything about it until the last 2-3 chapters. Vega is a grea...

    "Why are you doing this? What do you want?" "We already told you. We want one more." A haunted house. A haunted past. Which one is more dangerous? Logically it's a 4, but my heart gives it a 5. And honestly, after a little distance from it, it's 4. My heart still unashamedly...

    "She looked away from the tub for a fraction of a second, and when she looked back, there was a boy standing in the tub, watching her with wide black eyes, her razor clutched in one hand. He tilted his head, his upper lip twitching." Danielle Vega always knows how to make me uncomfo...

    I... just- what? Like what was that ending? I'm just at a loss for words tbh. This honestly isn't Danielle Vega's best work. The ending bumped it up or lessened it depending on how you look at it. Lmao that ending was sooo dumb. I'm astounded. I both hated and loved it. This book bo...

    I won a free copy of this book from Bookish First in exchange for an honest review. Okay, so before this turns into a big, long rant, I want to say that the first half of this book was amazing! The writing is truly great. The pacing is fast and exciting. The horror aspect is refresh...

    It's Danielle Vega, so naturally I love it. This book is about a girl named Hendricks who moves into a house where a young girl was murdered. It doesn't take long before spooky shit starts happening - creepy disembodied voices, meowing from a cat that she doesn't have, the smell of ...

    I'm afraid I really don't know what to say because for me this story was pretty forgettable. The author introduces the main character as someone who once waged a war against cliches, which is kind of strange since the entire book was one giant cliche. I didn't mind the author's writing...

    YA's answer to Stephen King... That's a lofty statement but I'll bite. Plus, my 80s-loving heart feels the vibe of this cover. Let's do this. ...

    4.5 Stars rounded down because I Am SALTY over the ending. This was the first book that I have read by Danielle under the Vega name. I have read others that are under Rollins and I was still super intrigued and interested the entire time. Danielle just has a way with writing and this b...

    I liked it, whatever. Spoilers below: Saggy Maggie never got punished for literally killing and torturing three boys. Her kids got punished for her, which I think is awful! They didn't deserve to die, but they did because of th their awful mother. ...
