Book Review: Spook House

There are some places in this world that go far beyond any normal definition of “haunted.” These places are so evil, so diabolical, that they become gateways to Hell itself. The Fuller Farm is one such place.

It is said that old man Fuller conducted unspeakable acts, blood rituals and human sacrifices, all in an attempt to gain the ultimate knowledge, the ultimate power. And then, he was killed–horribly murdered on his own lands, leaving the house to stand as a vacant monument to his wickedness. But once a door is opened, it can never really be closed.

Now, the stars are right. The gateway is ready to once more unleash unspeakable horror upon the town of Harmony, Indiana. And this will be one Halloween that they will never forget!

Woohoo!!! Okay okay..need to get my thoughts straight here... I think i will be starting with the book cover saying it's pure awesomeness? Easily my favorite cover from Seventh Star Press. And it could totally be a poster for a horror movie which leads us to the second part...the story.

I'm new to the horror genre as i am known for being easily scared. Still i wanted to try the book so here i am. Michael West starts by giving you some interesting facts about horror houses and starts with a "classic" scene at the horror house of our story. It spooks you literally from the first moment and keeps you at the edge of your seat the whole time. It's creepy, violent (monster violence that is), excited and full of mystery. It's exactly what that kind of stories need, written or live action, and as a result you have a really great read at your hands.

You follow the POV of various characters and see the story and their beliefs of what's happening. Each small part different than each other, giving you insight but still leaving you in the dark. It's funny how you also see characters doing things, that when you watch the movie you say "nooo don't do it" and they actually know they are about to do the certain action. But it's human nature and there are some things we can't say no. And maybe that's why it's so easy to get in the story and connect with them in a way.

In the end it was a book that gave me the chills and made me wanna try more of the both the genre and the author. And if you worry, about being 3rd in a series no worries. You can read it alone too.

P.S: I think that fans of Supernatural might like it. It was like its first seasons but darker and more violent and spooky.
