Description

I live next to a haunted house.

I began to suspect something was wrong with the gothic building when its family fled in the middle of the night, the children screaming, the mother crying. They never came back to pack up their furniture.

No family stays long. Animals avoid the place. Once, I thought I saw a woman's silhouette pacing through the upstairs room...but that seems impossible; no one was living there at the time.

A new occupant, Anna, has just moved in. I paid her a visit to warn her about the building. I didn't expect us to become friends, but we did. And now that Marwick House is waking up, she's asked me to stay with her.

I never intended to become involved with the building or its vengeful, dead inhabitant. But now I have to save Anna...before it's too late for the both of us.

Entertaining but not substantial

A good story with a lackluster ending, but still entertaining if you can forgive the "mentality ill woman is inherently violent" trope

Beginning was strong....ending, not so much

(NOT SCARY......AT ALL!!! MILDLY CREEPY AT BEST) It started off pretty good, moved along nicely, but it went south really quickly after chapter 23. It just seemed like the author either gave up or didn't know where to take the story. By the end of the book I just wanted it to be over. I didn't even care what happened to the characters.

Not a fan

I really didn't like this narrator. The narrator's voice inflection was that of a robot and was so irritating that it was very hard to finish the book. I think the book would have been way more fun to listen to if someone else had narrated and put some passion into the words.

Another creepy book by Darcy Coates

Darcy Coates has done a very creepy job with this book. I have read/listened to a few of her books and love them all so far. I love how she mainly does Haunted House books. Ghosts are my favorite. The book is Narrated by Emily Sutton-Smith. I really enjoyed her rendition of the book. She fully kept my attention all the way through the book. She has also done a great job with her character voices.

In this book Jo lives next door to a haunted house. The family living in the house flee's during the night with nothing but the Pj's they are wearing. They don't even bother to come back an collect their belonging.

Eight months later Jo gets a new neighbor. Anna is about Jo's age and seems like a very nice person. Jo and Anna become fast friends. Jo finally gets her chance to tour the house known as the Marwick House. She almost immediately knows it is haunted.

When Anna's abusive husband shows up at Jo's, she lies and tells him she doesn't know anyone by the name of Anna. As soon as he leaves she runs to let Anna know. She decides to spend the night at Anna's and this is where things really gets creepy.

Too short, not that scary, not enough back story

When I started this book, I was hoping for a "woman in black" kind of story, scary , deaths, lots of back story, a restless ghost, a speechless ending and frightening feeling at the end. It's far from that.

This book is a little scary, fast phased, entertaining, with some little love, but it is too short lacks back story and it could be a little more scary.

About the performance, she is a little robitic and emotionless at times.

keeps you guessing what will happen next

Awesome story.

I had fun with this one. Well written and an awesome ending made me love this book. Mild gore, nothing to overboard. Well paced and every chapter amused me. I`ll be following this author for sure. The narration was well executed as well.
