Bleedovers by William Todd Rose + a Giveaway

Hi, everyone! Today I'm a stop on the TLC book tour for William Todd Rose's Bleedovers. Thanks to the publisher, there is a tour wide giveaway on this one so be sure to read through to the end to enter.

Chuck is back with the Institute after miraculously finding his way back to his body. Though his actions were clearly not by the book, he has been forgiven and allowed back to work. But things are in a bit of a lull after his partner dies and a replacement isn't easily found.

That lull doesn't last long. It seems Chuck's partner didn't die of natural causes but was killed by an NCM - Non-Corporeal Manifestation in official speak. In other words, Nodens was murdered by a ghost. Meanwhile, Chuck himself is experiencing Crossfade-quality nightmares and these nightmares come with an ominous warning. 

Ummm, Bleedovers really is the stuff of nightmares! Seriously. Chuck's "nightmares" are gory and incredibly creepy - even in the middle of the afternoon. I kind of worried what kind of dreams I'd have as a result of reading this one!

Like its predecessor, Crossfades, Bleedovers introduces some quite unique concepts - or explanations of them. The NCMs - or Bleedovers themselves (ghosts that know they're dead and bounce from Crossfade to Crossfade, sometimes even manifesting in real life) - are new to this second outing. This paired with The Institute itself and Chuck's job makes William Todd Rose's stories interesting twists on classic ghost story tropes. Plus, you know, this one is kind of a murder mystery as well!

Rating: 4/5
