Sole Possession

By Bryn Donovan

David Girard has just inherited his old family home, though it is filled with nothing but awful memories he intends to “flip” it by making renovations and selling it for a profit. This is where Andi walks in, she is there to help fix it but as soon as she walks into the house she is assailed with haunting visions. Between the ghosts and the renovations Andi and David soon find themselves falling in love triggering a deadly curse.

 Sole Possession

So I know this is supposed to be a romance novel with all the steamy scenes including but for me the romance felt lacking, however the horror side of the book was absolutely amazing. At first the author seems to tease the readers with bits of the ghosts that reside in the mansion but then as the novel picks up speed it soon turns into and intense read. I am a sucker for ghosts, but the fact that Bryn Donovan combined romance and horror is so distinctive that the novel is worth reading just for this aspect. I have Bryn Donovan to thank for a sleepless night for one I couldn’t put the book down and two I was reading it late at night, by myself, in a house I have just recently moved into yeah I kept hearing noises and looking over my shoulder, so thanks for that. I did love this book even if the romance was a bit forced Bryn Donovan has a way with words brining to life some of the best scenes to make your heart rate speed up.

Ghost Radio by Leopoldo Gout Review

Ghost Radio

By Leopoldo Gout

 

Joaquin is the host of a popular occult orientated radio show where people call in to relay their bizarre stories. Joaquin has experienced his own share of life altering events that have lead him to opening the radio show as a forum for people who need to share and hopefully be able to come to terms with what has happened to them. Everything is going exceptionally well for Joaquin he has even been given a job to broadcast in the states for the first time, but soon the stories from his show aren’t just stories as strange events begin to bleed over into his everyday life.

 

The author did a great job with this novel it is strange and riddled with smaller scary stories that keep you immerged in the story. The main plot line is, well weird it leaves you wanting more and in the end when the true events come to light you are left feeling empty. It was a good ending for the novel but for me I wish it had been better there are so many directions the author could have gone with this one and I feel the one he chose fell flat. The rest of the novel is brilliant and thought provoking, the smaller stories are creepy and interesting, all in all it is a good book too bad you can’t skip the end.

House by Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti Review

House

By Ted Dekker ad Frank Peretti

Mr. White has issued a challenge the people inside of a seemingly innocuous inn after stranding the four there, if they do not kill one among them then he will kill them all so goes this story making the people inside face their own demons.  Set in backwoods Alabama the strangers face in breeds who are trying to sacrifice them to Mr. White and being trapped in a maze underneath a haunted house. Can they keep true themselves, or will the survival instinct kick in and force them to do the unthinkable?

This book was definitely different I enjoyed the mix of supernatural with psychological unfortunately the book itself was too predictable. From the very beginning I knew what was going on and who Mr. White was I was hoping I would be surprised so I kept reading when it turned out that every new “twist” was exactly as I predicted I was thoroughly disappointed. It was a fun read and the suspense was palpable but do not get your hopes up.

The Haunting by Shirley Jackson

The Haunting of Hill House

By Shirley Jackson

Dr. Montague is an occult scholar who invites three people to be his guest at Hill House in hopes that he may find evidence of the house’s notorious hauntings. At First things are just merely spooky and the residents merely laugh it off, until the manifestations take a more sinister turn.

This novel is absolutely spine tingling it has all you need for a heart fluttering good time, a maze of a house, children laughing in the night, even a statue that seems to watch you every move. I have seen the movie, it’s actually one of my favorites, but even the movie is dull in comparison. Though I am glad they left Mrs. Montague out of the movie, she only managed to annoy me more than anything. I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for something that will give you the heebie jeebies in a short time frame, it is only about 200 pages long but Shirley Jackson manages to definitely leave her mark.
