Don't Breathe a Word by Jennifer McMahon Blog Tour

Once upon a soft, summer night in a small New England town, a 12-year-old girl named Lisa went into the woods behind her house and never came out again. Before she disappeared, she told her little brother Sam about a door—hidden among the ruins of an old town long forgotten—that led to a magical place. A place where she would meet Teilo, the King of the Fairies, and become his queen. Sam didn’t believe in fairies, ghosts, or anything supernatural back then, and now, 15 years later, he still doesn’t. It’s one of the many things that his girlfriend, Phoebe, loves about this practical, sensible man. Sam doesn’t have bad dreams, doesn’t avoid the shadows, and does not fear the dark. Instead, he helps her ignore her own dark nightmares. But a series of eerie occurrences—beginning with a mysterious phone call—begins to challenge Sam’s hard-headed realism. Could there be a world beyond their own and is Lisa somehow a part of it? As events spin out of control, the couple finds themselves falling deeper into a vortex of evil and terror. And suddenly Sam is reminded of a terrible promise he made years ago . . . a promise that could to destroy them all. 

My Thoughts:

Now when I first got the book I honestly thought it was going to be more of a teen fantasy read and while I have enjoyed a few in that genre before, I really wasn't in the mood for another, but I decided to just stay with it and see where it took me.

I was pleasantly surprised in that it actually turned out to be more of a psychological thriller with twists and turns and extremely well written.

If you love a good book full of mystery and drama and one which leaves you guessing until the very last page, then this is definitely the book for you.

The characters were great, the plot was excellent and it was also kind of a creepy book with some moments a little disturbing at some points but I think it just made the story, definitely kept you hooked and wanting to know more until the very end.

Great book!
