Death's Dance by Crymsyn Hart

Series: Deathly Encounters Series #1
Genre: Horror
Publisher: Seventh Star Press
Source: I received an e-copy for review
Being a psychic, you would think talking to the dead was a walk in the park. However, it’s not always that simple. The hooded specter haunting me is one I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. One day, he appeared in my bedroom mirror. Good. Evil. I don’t know what his true intentions are.Enter Jackson, ghost hunting show host extraordinaire, and my ex, to save me from the big bad ghost.
From there…well…it’s been a world wind of complications. My house burnt down. I’m being stalked by an ancient evil and gotten myself back into the world of being a ghost hunting psychic. Jackson dragged me, along with a few other psychics, to a ghost town wiped off the map called Death’s Dance.
From there things went from bad to worse.

Death's Dance is a promising start of a new series. It has all the ingredients (yeah also the corny ones) for a good horror. Unfortunately it also has a big flaw. 

I read Death's Dance in one sitting, at night. I like to read these books at night and this one shoud be read at night. I truly liked the world created by Crymsyn. Trying to figure out if the hooded specter is good or evil, the ghost town, the ex çoming to 'the rescue', some "don't do it" and "don't go in there" scenes, it all worked. All the right vibes for a Horror. 

Unortunately she included romance in the mix and in this case it just did not work. Romance and Horror rarely go together and it is a big risk to combine them. You immediately get a PNR vibe and that does not fit in a Horror. 

I am however looking forward to the next instalment in this series. I am curious to how this series will proceed. Will it be Kerstin and Than again or will others be added in the mix? Azrael maybe?? I do hope Crymsyn can keep it in the Horror scene, because with Death's Dance she showed she is on the right way of giving us a scary story. 

My rate: 3/5
