Creed - Trisha Leaver, Lindsay Currie 3.5 stars

This book isn't actually that bad. The premise is very simple. Three teens get stranded on some random road, try to find help, end up in this creeptastic town and then attempt to escape a deanged dude that's trying to kill them.

This was like reading a decent slasher/horror film. I quite enjoyed it, and to be absolutely honest, the first few chapters of the book did give me the creeps. The atmosphere and that town... *shivers*, I so did not want to be in their shoes.

The last chapters got very intense (I didn't expect all that gore), but I didn't much care for the ending.

I also wasn't a fan of one of the main characters, Dee, but I suppose she acted very much the immature teen part. Funnily enough, I found her sad, sad background unnecessary (ironic, considering what happens) and she started irritating me the moment she thought Joseph was interested in her that way --not 5 seconds after being introduced she feels she has to make it clear that she has a boyfriend. Give me a break.

This book is very straightforward in its blurb, I think. So I believe most people's expectations should be safe. I doubt anyone is expecting some thriller/horror masterpiece. This is basically a slasher film in book format. You'll get your cheap thrills, exciting moments, clichés, characters making dumb decisions, and lots and lots of blood.
