Two sisters, divided by time. Each with a terrible resentment she can barely contain.

Two Fear family weddings, decades apart... Each bride will find that the ancient curse that haunts the Fears LIVES ON. It feeds off the evil that courses through their blood. It takes its toll in unexpected ways, and allows dark history to repeat itself.

ARC Series Suspense Thriller Young Adult

Return to Fear Street was more like return to nostalgia street for me. My inner 13 year old jumped for joy when I found out about the new Fear Street stories. R.L. Stine sure knows how to turn YA into creep fest city. And I love it.


You May Now Kill the Bride was a glimpse into the lives of the Fear Family. (The street so famously named after them causes all sorts of trouble). The story starts out in the past (the 1920s) and works it’s way up to present day setting.  Following the Fear Family’s sordid past and questionable characters.

Going into this story, I already knew that what might seem like a normal settings quickly turns to skin tingling atmospheres. This did not disappoint. The main premise to take away from this one is the sibling rivalry between the two sisters in the past and present. They mirror each other in both characters and jealousies. You will find that the Fear’s also dabble in witchcraft and the way that plays into the story worked overall.

Without giving away too much of the plot, time travel does occur as well. If you are into that sort of thing. I felt like it was too convenient of a way for the story to be wrapped up and I was hoping for more in regards to that. It was too easy.


Overall, whether it’s purely because you are a fan or just like a light thriller, You May Now Kill the Bride will satisfy your inner 13 year old.
