April #MidnightBooks: MARY: The Summoning (Bloody Mary #1)

Howdy, horror fans! It’s me, Kathy! I am thrilled to announce my choice for our Midnight Book Club read for April! I am super-dee duper excited to read MARY: The Summoning! And then I shall attempt to host the Twitter chat where we can talk about all the creepiness.

AND WAIT THERE’S MORE…the author, the fabulous Hillary Monahan, has accepted my invitation to join us for our chat. So we can ask all the questions and quite possible fangirl a bit too much. Which is completely acceptable and not at all weird.

So join the fun and read MARY: THE SUMMONING.

And a HUGE THANK YOU to the wonderful FAITH MCKAY for setting this post up. You’re the best!


mary the summoningThere is a right way and a wrong way to summon her.

Jess had done the research. Success requires precision: a dark room, a mirror, a candle, salt, and four teenage girls. Each of them–Jess, Shauna, Kitty, and Anna–must link hands, follow the rules . . . and never let go.

A thrilling fear spins around the room the first time Jess calls her name: “Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary. BLOODY MARY.” A ripple of terror follows when a shadowy silhouette emerges through the fog, a specter trapped behind the mirror.

Once is not enough, though–at least not for Jess. Mary is called again. And again. But when their summoning circle is broken, Bloody Mary slips through the glass with a taste for revenge on her lips. As the girls struggle to escape Mary’s wrath, loyalties are questioned, friendships are torn apart, and lives are forever altered.

A haunting trail of clues leads Shauna on a desperate search to uncover the legacy of Mary Worth. What she finds will change everything, but will it be enough to stop Mary–and Jess–before it’s too late?
