Darcy Coates has a new fan.
I found the premise of the novel to be interesting, and I love it when the horror spans multiple generations. In fact, that is what I liked most about the novel. I do think that the writer spent a little too much describing where the lead was standing/moving and it seemed both distracting and poorly executed.
The female was a bit...frustrating. And the novel needed this if it was to occur over a few days because some of her choices made me wonder how she managed to reach adult hood. She ignored instinct, threw caution to the wind,and endangered herself a lot. Naturally the consequences were not always kind to her and she always regrets these choices but never seems to learn. But she is human, so maybe my criticism is too harsh.
But that is not why I gave it three stars.
I gave it three stars because of the ending. It was rushed, and a little cringe worthy in terms of execution (very campy). I've read enough novels that there are some things I cannot ignore, and I refuse to give a novel a higher rating just because of it's price (2.99).
Darcy Coates writing is good, but the story line is one that is pretty predictable. This story seems to be aimed more towards children than adults. I think this book would be suitable for a preteen and that that age group would enjoy it very much.
If you have reached the age of fifteen, keep looking. There must be an intelligent haunting book out there somewhere.
