Four young people are brought together in Siler House for an experiment, or so they’re told. The house has a history. At the turn of the 20th century gruesome murders take place. Since then, it has sat empty, until recently. Each person that is brought in has his/her own unique talent. Jess can see and talk to ghosts, Gage is a necromancer, Bryan can make things disappear and Allison can see demons. Throughout their stay they are visited by the ghosts of the twin girls that were murdered, as well as their murderer, Riley.
This story put me in mind of The Haunting of Hill House. I loved it! I’m a huge fan of ghosts and paranormal, so this was right up my alley. I love how each character has a different power, so to speak, yet each was key to making it work as one. Jess and Gage also had the hots for each other and a little romance never hurts. This is a great read! I definitely put this in my top five reads for this year.

Even though i usually stay away from books that might scare me, i couldn't say no to one of Michelle Muto's book since i loved the previous book by her. So here we are me trying to read it..
...and be totally creeped out. I stopped reading 2 times because the images in mind were so strong (talk about a good description!) that i felt that i was in the Siler House along the others. It was like walking into it, listening to it and let's not talk about Riley. The creepy murderer kid in the mirrors. I haven't look in a mirror in my house for like 3 days xD. Okay yes, i'm easily scared but either way i think it really creepy and scary. Michelle Muto, knew exactly what to say and what to make her characters feel to get to you.
Let's talk about the writing a little, because something happened that i was really impressed with it. The book is written in 2 POV's : Jess and Gage. It's the first time, that i feel like the whole writing style changes to fit the character. Gage was more straightforward, more boyish while Jess was easy, calm and slower. It showed the difference not only in their minds but in their personalities too. Oh what i would have give to be in Allison's mind too!
Anna dressed in Blood was good, but Haunting Season was a lot better. It scared me and still i couldn't stop reading. It was like watching those old horror movies (there is even a sex scene in which it didn't disturb me at all like it happens most of the time!!) but instead reading it and feeling everything enhanced.
