The concern becomes essential when the sins of the dead bleed through every nook and cranny. The house becomes more than haunted it become a portal for a vengeful spirit to despoil their revenge in an attempt to satisfy a selfish end and raising havoc and even death to the living.
In the spirit of The Haunting in Connecticut, The Shinning, and Amityville Horror Amy Cross brings her readers a spin tingling, fear-ridden, brutish horror.
The writing style is stellar. A great many times the author craft expressive writing to convey immediacy, excitement or stress, Cross has this mastered.
I would recommend this book to anyone with interest in the macabre. It’s simply an entertaining, fast-paced, engaging read.
THE CURSE OF WETHERLEY HOUSE is the first book I've read by author Amy Cross. The haunting and ghost in this novel exceeded my own expectations. This malevolent entity had been inhabiting Wetherley house since 1888, when Robert and his pregnant bride, Marguerite, came to live there.
Cross begins the tale in the present time. Although after only a handful of chapters, she switches to the events of 1888, leading back up to the present in chronological order. While I found this a little jarring at first, once I got into the horror happening in and around Wetherley, I couldn't read fast enough.
". . . it's the kind of place that a lot of people don't even want to talk about . . . "
The ghost, dubbed "Evil Mary" is a result of something even more horrifying and soul shattering. I won't go into spoiler territory here, but some of the things I read actually made me want to reach in and pull the characters out to safety.
". . . To see her face is to know true evil, and to feel her touch on your shoulder is to feel the chill of death itself."
When we are finally brought full circle to the current people investigating the house, I didn't think there was much else that could have surprised me.
I was so wrong.
". . . "Funny how a few little incidents can change everything."
This was a fantastically creepy novel with some very unique twists. If it weren't for the numerous editing errors, and one integral part of the story that I felt we could have been given some further insight into, I would have given this a full 4-star rating. I would absolutely read another book from Amy Cross in the future.
It’s interesting to read the reviews and see what it is people like and dislike about a book. I really thought this book was great aside from some of the misspellings and misused words, which I personally can get over quickly. This book was utterly scary.... to me anyway. The descriptions were just crazy, and I don't mean that in a bad way. Yes some of the story (ie. the birth and I will call it’re-birth' of Mary) were to some other reviewers unbelievable, but this is a horror book and sometimes you have to suspend reality while reading in order to be able to feel and get into a book properly. This author did a great job of making me visualize what was going on and it was pretty graphic and intense.
The book starts out in the present with a pretty graphic scene, then transitions to yesteryear to build the story. I thought the transition in years was pretty smooth. I mean how much smoother can you be by stating the year at the top of the section/part of the book (there were 7 parts) then who each chapter was about within that section and time moved on chronologically. Ie (year 1888– then each chapter within had a name Marguerite, Mary, Eve, etc).
Now to the book conclusion, the ending was sufficient and didn’t leave me feeling like I was lacking something, but I thought the ending was predictable, until there was an Epilogue, it took a turn and I was like ‘Oh I didn’t see that coming’. Based off the epilogue, there could be some sort of sequel, but not an actual sequel, a whole new story. Well done!
I read a lot of books; this one drew me in and sucked my soul into it. I can’t say that about a lot of the books I read. I caught myself sneaking off while at work to read it because, well it sucked me in and I had to know what was going to happen next. I even had one night I couldn’t sleep because I swear I was seeing maggots everywhere and somehow incorporated what I read into some weird vivid dreams. That is what a horror book should do; it had me on edge and wanting more.
If you can suspend reality and like a good visualized horror story, you might like this one. This would make a great graphic and scary horror movie.
