I have to admit I was a bit nervous when I was offered the chance to read the Legend of Mr. Ween – a short Halloween Story. I’m usually not one for scary – or blood and guts, and such so when I read ‘Halloween’ story that is automatically where my mind went; but I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading that it’s got more of a Harry Potter/Percy Jackson feel. More magic and good vs evil, than what I was expecting.
The story begins back in 1905, with a young man named Hal who is adventuring into a new city to find employment. We notice something different about Hal from the get go, but you will learn eventually why – Hal is very observant and when he starts to interact with people in the city he starts to notice they are all acting very strange – familiarly strange.
A ‘magic’ elixir has been being sold in town, with promises of strength and energy and speed , but seems to come with some very dark and scary side effects. Something Hal has seen before – and doesn’t want to see again.
Hal manages to get a job being a farm hand to a old Doctor who had also noticed the strange behavior of the townspeople. . and begins to run some experiments, but Hal is afraid he’ll be too late. Hal begs the Doctor to help him do something , and they come up with a plan – but does it work??
