Product Description

Seventeen-year-old Marianna Bertagnoli is miserable…

Not only did her father abandon her five years ago, now she’s being uprooted and forced to move with her mother and new stepdad to a creepy Victorian house they inherited in the even creepier town of Flocksdale.

Flocksdale has an evil, ugly past—and history has a way of repeating itself…

Marianna notices some strange qualities about her new home, and soon realizes she’s living in none other than the infamous House of Horrors. That’s right, the very house where the demented Garrett family ran a drug ring, leading to the kidnappings and murders of forty young girls.

The dark energy of the town begins to rise again…

Within a week of moving in, Marianna’s mother disappears, one of her small group of new friends is found murdered, and she’s attacked by a man wearing a hideous clown mask. As she searches for answers, Marianna wonders if the malevolence still lingers, somehow alive…and how her stepdad came to own the House of Horrors.

Unsure who to trust, Marianna turns to Wendi Wise, a survivor of the Garretts’ crimes…

Caught up in twisted family ties and surrounded by deceit, Marianna is targeted by a new generation of evil. Doubly imprisoned—in her own body and in the real house of the lost girls—Marianna needs Wendi’s help to unravel the bizarre history of Flocksdale.

But will Marianna survive long enough to bring the evil to light?

Or will she be trapped in the house of the lost girls forever?

Brilliant twists. Great series

Don't read right before bed!
Evil is certainly a place called Flocksdale.
More twists and turns than a labyrinth. Brilliant and heart stopping. Creepy and engaging. Spent most of the time in the edge of my seat. If I was a nail biter I'd have none left! Absolutely loved it. Couldn't put it down.

Carissa Lynch's novel had me up late once again! What an excellent follow up to "Have you seen this Girl?" Far-fetched and totally crazy, but what a great book! The writing is excellent and the author once again draws you in straight away into the story. Well done Carissa, can't wait for the final book in the series :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I highly recommend this series to readers who enjoy gritty, edgy crime thrillers with kick-butt female protagonists! 9 November 2015
By April Wood - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
What’s It About?
“My life was starting to feel like some crazy, knife-wielding version of Alice in Wonderland.”
Marianne’s mother and step-father married a year ago, and he has been wrecking her life ever since. They pack up and move to the town of Flocksdale, into a giant Victorian on Clemmons St. Also known as the ‘House of Horrors’, a home where countless girls were kidnapped, held against their will, and murdered.
“The town of Flocksdale had a history. A nasty, evil sort of history.”
Despite the house being rebuilt from the ground up, Marianne cannot get comfortable in her new environment. Nothing about the house on Clemmons St. feels like home.
Soon, a girl goes missing, and her dead body is found. Marianne’s mother leaves in the middle of the night, and Marianne cannot get a hold of her, leaving her with her step-father…
“Is history repeating itself?”
Marianne isn’t sure who to trust. She begins her own investigation. After reading a book written by Wendi Wise, one of the house’s victims, Marianne knocks on her door, seeking help.
“I thought about Wendi Wise, how strong she’d been when she went after the monsters from her youth. I channeled her energy. Her strength, Her courage.”
Together, they are The Lost Girls, and they are on a mission… A mission to avenge.
My Thoughts
The Flocksdale Files is a series that I hold near and dear to my heart. Both feature a strong female lead who you route for throughout. I enjoyed Marianne’s character as much as Wendi’s from book 1.
Before reading, I wondered how Author Carissa Ann Lynch would continue this series. I loved the direction she went with in this installment of the Flocksdale Files. Like the first book, it was a steady, action-packed read that had me sitting at the edge of my seat in suspense!
Deception surrounded Marianne, and the author kept me guessing: Who can Marianne trust? I loved that Wendi from book 1 played such a big role in this book also. I loved her character and reintroducing her into the story was like reuniting with an old friend.
I loved the first person perspective. It connected me with Marianne. I could see the world through her eyes, and I had access to her inner thoughts. I’ve always preferred first person POV because it feels like the character herself is telling me her story, versus me watching from the sidelines with a third person perspective. I feel that the author made a wise choice in choosing first person POV.
Author Carissa Ann Lynch creates well-rounded characters that I genuinely care about and think about long after I have closed the book. She also has a talent for creating a compelling plot, that keeps me turning the pages. I highly recommend this series to readers who enjoy gritty, edgy crime thrillers with kick-butt female protagonists!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! 4 November 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh. My. God!!! I am completely blown away by this one, so excuse me while I’m trying to find the right words to express my emotions. Carissa Ann Lynch did it again, made me spend all night up on the edge of my seat, completely engrossed in the dark world of a small city of Flocksdale, and this time she outdid even her best-selling novel “Have You Seen This Girl”!
First of all, the setting is fantastically written. I could feel the gloomy, creepy atmosphere of the small town, see the black river, the nuclear plant on the other side of it (which turned out to be a mental institution), and of course the skating rink, where the abduction of Wendy Wise in book one happened. However, the evil is not going to give up its positions in their favorite corrupt little town.
The main character Marianna is new to Flocksdale, where she was forced to move after her father left several years ago and her mother re-married George, who inherited a family house from his aunt. Imagine the horror of the girl when after suspecting that something was creepy about her new house and after doing some research, she reveals the terrifying truth. Her stepfather George is a relative of the family who used to run a girls-trafficking business, and she lives in the so-called House of Horrors where all those girls had been held captive and murdered.
I can go on and on about this absolutely outstanding thriller, but I will save you the pleasure to discover for yourselves which other horrifying secrets Flocksdale keeps, starting with creepy clowns, suspicious new friends and finishing with demented relatives who aren’t who you think they are. Let me just say that this one definitely made my Halloween special and I can’t thank the author enough for a job greatly done!
P.S. Why can I only give it five stars? I want to give it ten!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first 13 November 2015
By bookworm81 - Published on
I loved the first book in this series so had high expectations for this one and I'm pleased to say it didn't disappoint. House of the Lost Girls is an amazing thriller with some fantastic twists- each time I thought I knew what was going to happen, something else come out of left field and completely floored me.

I love Carissa Ann Lynch's writing style and the complex, realistic (if sometimes twisted!) characters she creates. I really enjoyed the way this book tied into the first. While I suppose it could be read as a standalone novel, having read the first one really enriched the experience and I would definitely recommend reading both.

Such a great book. Even better than the first!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good read 11 November 2015
By Luv2read - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Almost 18-year-old Marianna is not happy. Whether from her parents’ divorce and her father leaving several years back or having to be relocated, she’s not in a good place. And so the story starts and there’s empathy for the protagonist. And, talking about not being in a good place, moving to the creepy town of Flocksdale the theme takes on a dark plot. Right away I’m intrigued and want to know what each new page turn will bring. And, what does comes are strange things, an ugliness, and mysterious happenings that move this read along with a welcome intensity: a disappearance, murder, betrayal, and an intense curiosity to understand that the hell is going on propel the protagonist, Marianna, forward through this at times gut-churning storyline. Sharp and intelligently written scenes like the time she met the first three kids in the new town who were smoking pot and she divulged that her stepdad, George, was a judge. I laughed at this interchange, which is a mark of clever writing. But they weren’t all funny as the plot moved into creepy intrigue, with a love interest turning out to be not what she expected, and a big unexpected surprise to the reader. I don’t want to recount this whole well crafted story, suffice it to say it’s a good read that resonates authentic. It’s the second book I’ve read by this author and after reading this one am sure it won’t be the last.
