Book Review: Sarah of the Romani by Tom Calen

Continuing with my Halloween reads for 2015, I selected this read from Goodreads’ 2015 Horror Novels. I will be bringing a few reviews of books I have chosen from this list in the two weeks leading up to Halloween.

A compelling horror tale about a Romani legend, Sarah-la-kali, imprisons a demon, who manages to get lose and plans to stay that way. Can those who know about the legend help to confine the demon once again?

I really enjoyed this gory demons and witches horror read, the premise of which was grounded in history and was suspenseful and terrifying in parts. I am not a huge fan of the paranormal but even the existence of witches in this story did not detract anything from it for me.

Possibly the best horror I have read so far this year. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

  1. Oh, brilliant! I love that you are reading scary stories to celebrate Halloween! I’m doing the same thing. I’m going through all my scary/paranormal/witches, etc books to be reviewed and reviewing them for the month of October, even though it is way out of order, lol! šŸ™‚

    1. I always mean to read scary stuff around this time of year but never get round to it so I promised myself I’d make an effort this year. I might even get to read Christmas stuff at Christmas too!

  2. I used to be a horror novelist–got for of them published, too. I don’t know whether any of my horror novels are on kindle, but you might want to try “Lifeblood,” in which a scientifically-minded vampire sets up shop in an upper middle-class suburban township in New Jersey.
