Dee, Luke and Mike are on there way to a concert, but on the way a winter storm and a broken down car forces the three into a town called Purity Springs. The town is deserted and isn’t what it seems. The next morning the towns inhabitants appear and Dee, Luke and Mike are chased and captured. The towns charismatic leader has them trapped and he intends to make Dee his new wife.
I went into Creed really exited because I wanted something creepy for my halloween read. Unfortunately I felt really let down by Creed. To me, it wasn’t all that creepy. The characters at time seemed smart, but then other times, they seemed really silly and stupid. You come into a town that is deserted, everything is identical and there are some creepy documents lying around and you decide to stay the night instead of getting the hell out of there?
The story seemed unoriginal and uninteresting. You knew what was going to happen, and there weren’t any shocking twists. It just didn’t feel like anything special and it was very predictable. It may interest some people, but it just didn’t do anything for me,which is sad because this book had so much potential and promise but it failed to deliver.
The characters also felt underdeveloped and flat. There weren’t much there and there weren’t much chemistry between the characters. I’m not really sure what it was but I just didn’t really care for them at all.
Overall, not a read I would personally recommend, but if the book caught your attention, maybe try giving it a go for yourself.
MY RATING: ★★☆☆☆
