Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Go Hunt Me by Kelly deVos.  This tour is being hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours.

 

Go Hunt Me by Kelly deVos

Genre: Young Adult Horror

Publishing Date: June 14, 2022

 

 

For Dracula lovers and fans of Diana Urban’s All Your Twisted Secrets, this spine-tingling thriller follows seven horror buffs as their dream trip to a remote Romanian castle turns into a nightmare when they begin to be killed one by one.

Alex Rush is ready for the trip of a lifetime.

She and her friends have made some creepily awesome films together throughout high school, so with only a few months left before they go their separate ways for college, they’re determined to make the best one yet: an epic short film that reimagines the story of Dracula, filmed on location at a remote castle in Romania.

But when they get there, it’s not quite the majestic setting they planned for. Menacing weapons line the walls, the twisted halls are easy to get lost in, and with no connection to the outside world, the group is unexpectedly off the grid. After just a few hours spent under its roof, Alex and her friends have no trouble imagining how this dark, terrifying castle inspired one of the most enduring horror novels of all time.

Only soon they no longer have to use their imaginations to understand the location’s terrifying history—just as they get the film’s first shot rolling, one of Alex’s friends disappears, and she’s nearly certain she saw a cloaked stranger lurking in the shadows. As more members of the group begin to meet an untimely demise, Alex is desperate to stop the bloodshed, even if it means facing a monster she never thought would be let loose.

Content warnings: Some discussion of sexual harassments and abuse, death, violence, gore

review

 

Go Hunt Me was such a fun read. I already knew I liked Kelly’s writing and I was definitely sold with Romania and Dracula.

Alex and her friends are all into making movies/arts. They had been working on Alex’s movie to use for college admissions. But Alex doesn’t get in and is waitlisted. Her dad is sick and they’re hurting for money. She doesn’t know what to do. When she runs into her friend’s neighbor that is an actress, things start to maybe fall into place. There is a Go Fund Me set up and the actress sees it and shares. She visits Alex’s family and tells them that her cousin owns a castle in Romania, one that was Vlad the Impaler’s. She agrees to take the kids there so that they can film something better. She has equipment and they have plenty of funding thanks for an anonymous donor. They’re all excited. But the actress leaves them alone. The castle is creepy and has no internet or phone service. The cousin who owns it is weird and leaves. Alex feels like something is wrong. One of the friends goes missing and Alex sees someone in one of their Dracula masks. Lights that were on are turned off. They find random things like a lit cigar. When Alex goes to look for her friend, she finds blood on the door. The kids start to split up with different missions, but it doesn’t go the way they hoped.

The book is told with investigation tapes and with Alex’s story. It goes back in time and then goes forward quite a bit. The whole story unfolds with some pretty big twists. I thought I had it figured out, but I was wrong this time. I love when that happens.

I gave this book 4 1/2 stars rounded up to 5 on Goodreads.

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for my earc.
