Passion and Poison: Tales of Shape-Shifters, Ghosts, and Spirited Women

Passion and Poison: Tales of Shape-Shifters, Ghosts, and Spirited Women - Janice M. Del Negro OVERALL IMPRESSION: I thought this book was going to be really terrifying, but it was not super scary. The book states that it is for ages 10 and up, so it's more of a middle grade than a young adult book. This was a very quick book to read through, and I was thoroughly entertained. The stories are quick and slightly spooky. I really enjoyed the illustrations that are scattered throughout the book, they helped to set the mood. My favorite story in the collection is Sea Child and I also really enjoyed The Severed Hand.

COVER: The cover of this is pretty creepy. The pop of red on the woman's necklace and the red squiggly title just stand out and make you immediately think of blood.

**I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine for my honest review.
