Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I knew when I started reading this book that I would like the premise because it reminded me of my all time favorite book, Intensity by Dean Koontz. It starts off with the two girls who I mostly came to care about although they were not the highlights of the story for me. Then we meet Cory and his little brother Sam and for me they make the book. They are great well rounded characters with a heartbreaking back story. The way the bad guy was messing with them was creepy and awful and I was rooting for Sam from the get go. All of the characters were done very well and their relationships with each other were fun to watch unfold. The setting was done well and I was able to easily imagine the different places and how they fit together. The setting was almost a character itself as it played a large part in the story. It was creepy, helped to create a sense of helplessness and was real all at the same time. The story had a good pace with the exception of a couple of needless conversations that the cops had toward the end of the story but they were easily overlooked.

There were some things that didn't necessarily work for me after looking back. The bad guys motivations were never very clear. I thought he was just running around killing people for fun then things happened that made me question that. A few times characters did things that didn't make any sense. Like the cops being worried about a warrant. Then something is mentioned at the end which is a huge plot twist but its not explained to my satisfaction. I would have also like more violence.

Overall this was an enjoyable read that I finished pretty quickly. The characters and setting are very well done and I look forward to reading more by this author. If you like survival stories, creepy stories, or stories about brothers facing evil together then give this book a try. You won't be disappointed.

If I could give this chiller/thriller ten stars, I would. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I read the entire novel in one sitting! A heart-stopping, powerful, wonderful read! Ms. Roberts has some serious talent.

I loved the blurb about The Boogeyman as much as the novel itself. The blurb is different, therefore eye catching. It gave me a good start on the novel itself.

Anyone who knows me knows I love horror and Lillie's latest does the genre proud. The Boogeyman is listed as YA but the book will entertain everyone. Thankfully it is not a slasher mess of a novel. Those I can do without. It's the psychological horror that does it for me and The Boogeyman meets my requirements.

Lillie J Roberts has a very sensual way of writing. The words are like satin sheets that flow over freshly shaved legs. Granted that's a weird analogy, but it fits. Her words fit and aside from a few random things that don't bear to be listed, I enjoyed The Boogeyman VERY much.

The novel is basic, two girls missing, parents worrying and a psycho killer who stops at nothing to get what he wants. Yet the words thread a captivating horror story you cannot put down. Ms. Roberts lives up to her reputation with a solid horror novel for young and for old.

You take Joss Wheedon and Robert Bloch, put them in a blender and you get Lillie J. Roberts.

Classics victims, Kimmie and Lacey, experience a car break down after heading back from the beach. Little do they know, they won't quite get home the way they planned-- let alone at all. Mwahahahahaha.

Seriously, though, this is a solid horror story for teens. It isn't a gory as I'd like, but I'm probably completely desensitized.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. This book was a quick read, it keep me on the edge of my seat hoping the victims would escape and I finished it in one sitting. Well written and the characters were believable, even the evil Boogeyman. If you like horror, you'll enjoy this story...and keep the lights on!

Format: Paperback
Lillie J. Roberts applies an ever increasing force of tension that culminates in a nerve-jangling climax in her latest novel. Boogeyman is a tale of two parallel kidnappings committed by a troubled antagonist who would be perfectly at ease sitting at a dinner table with the likes of Norman Bates and Hannibal Lecter. There is a certain amount of joy in watching the man dubbed “Smoker dude” descend further into madness, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Boogeyman is real.

As the story begins, we meet Lacey and Kimmie—two hormonal teens summering with their boyfriends at a lakeside cabin financed by their parents; frolicking in the sand, drinking beer, and doing what most normal well-to-do teenagers do. But when the girls head off for home on their own, opting for a short-cut down a lonely back road, we immediately feel a chilly shift. The once picturesque cornfields of rural Illinois almost immediately take on a sinister tone, as if they hide an encroaching terror.

In an alternate story, we are introduced to Cory—a seventeen-year-old who is forced into manhood after the sudden passing of his father. Saddled with the responsibility of taking care of his younger brother, Sam, and a mother whose grief has rendered her virtually bedridden, Cory must summon the strength to protect his family from the strange presence that continually appears outside his little brother’s bedroom window.

Lillie J. Roberts has crafted an engaging, fast-paced horror novel that will delight YA fans and have readers sleeping with a nightlight. The writing is tight, the chapters are quick, and the creepy, claustrophobic settings take on a life of their own.
