Review: Small Town Monsters by: Diana Rodriguez Wallach

Title: Small Town Monsters
Author: Diana Rodriguez Wallach
Publisher: Underlined
Format: e-book ARC ( 314 p.) NetGalley


The Conjuring meets The Vow! This terrifying paperback original tells the unputdownable story of a girl, a dark angel, and the cult hellbent on taking over her small, coastal town.

Vera Martinez wants nothing more than to escape Roaring Creek and her parents' reputation as demonologists. Not to mention she's the family outcast, lacking her parents' innate abilities, and is terrified of the occult things lurking in their basement.

Maxwell Oliver is supposed to be enjoying the summer before his senior year, spending his days thinking about parties and friends. Instead he's taking care of his little sister while his mom slowly becomes someone he doesn't recognize. Soon he suspects that what he thought was grief over his father's death might be something more...sinister.

When Maxwell and Vera join forces, they come face to face with deeply disturbing true stories of cults, death worship, and the very nature that drives people to evil.

Underlined is a line of totally addictive romance, thriller, and horror paperback original titles coming to you fast and furious each month. Enjoy everything you want to read the way you want to read it. 

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Vera Martinez whose trying to survive in a town where everyone treats her like a dead freak because of her parents work which is similar to the Warren's work in the Conjuring movies.  In this book though Maxwell Oliver needs Vera's help with her parents in Barcelona helping someone else the pressure is on Vera to help Max whose Mom has gone crazy.

Vera notices that the people in town are all crazy about a self help group.  But is the group helping or are they taking over?  Vera whose adamant she has no powers feels compelled to help her class mate.  With the help of Vera's aunt and a local priest the hunt is on to help one helpless woman so over taken by grief she can barely get through the day.

This book was incredible especially for anyone who loves The Nun and The Conjuring movies it pulls you in and you can't put it down til you know the kids will be alright!  I feel in love with Vera and felt for her when you read about her issues and Max's issues you want to take them somewhere safe!
