Normally, I’m not one to read books that’ll scare me into staying awake, and for a little bit, that’s what this one did. But I had a really hard time putting it down. I don’t read horror, so I have no idea if the premise of this book is original, but it was sure new to me! I had to keep reading to find out what was so weird about the house. Doors that close on their own? Sure, I have those at my house. But that’s where the similarity ends, thank goodness.
I enjoyed the way the past was brought forward, the spontaneity of the aggression of the house…and there is aggression and danger, believe me. The way each of the characters responds to the house, to each other and to their jobs is fascinating.
In the end, I stayed up far later than I should have to finish this, and even though I’m not one for things that go bump in the night, I really hope there’s another book to follow this one. I’ll just read it with the lights on.
I was honored to be allowed an ARC in exchange for an unbiased review.
