I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, I genuinely could not put it down. Not being a lover of dark horror stories I would never have read this book if it wasn’t picked as a book-club book.
This story covers almost everything horror and evil and dark. I didn’t find it full blown in your face throw the book across the room never to read a chapter again scary! I found it suspenseful and atmospheric, some descriptions made you wince, but there is also laugh out loud humour. Great banter that reads smooth and believable. There is also great loss and sadness and plenty of twists and turns.
The characters are fabulous, both the good and the evil. The descriptions of each character enables you to imagine them completely but without it being made too boring. They literately come to life on the pages in front of you. The description of Wyckham House and the surrounding area were enough to creep anyone out!
As the plot unfolds the story just keeps reeling you in deeper and deeper. Towards the end you just can’t read quick enough. Witches, werewolves, demons, evil angles, good angles and black magic…… all mixed in mostly folklore legends. Light and dark where goodness mostly wins and be evil at your peril. Not too over the top, but enough to make it an exciting tale.
This is a stand-alone story so don’t be put off that there is a second book, there is no cliff-hanger ending. So do yourself a favour and read this very well written story, I can’t recommend it enough. I will even get the next book by this author but I need light and fluffy before I tackle the next one!
