I loved this novel. I bought it in Kindle and audio book, and read then listened to it. Scott Thomas does something that many writers, especially of this genre, fail at. I cared about the characters. I identified them worth real world (to me) inspiration and I cared what happened to them in their (sometimes) gruesome ends. I wanted to know their stories, I felt intirigued by their desires and motives. So I felt something rare. True horror.
While I will agree that the descriptive similes reminded me too much of At the Mountains of Madness (too much atmosphere, no real action at times), the characters, overall story, and unexpected ending made up for it in spades.
If you’re unsure, listen to it in audiobook. The narrator really brings these characters to life. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
TL;DR Just read it. Or listen to it. If you like a good haunted house story, you won’t be sorry.
