"One of the most horrifying books I've ever read. I know it's cliché to say you're hooked from the first page, but it is absolutely true here. The first chapter packs a gut-punch that completely shocked me as both a reader and a parent. I read HOUSE OF SIGHS in just a few days, only putting it down when I had to." -- The Horror Fiction Review
"... A deeply unsettling book and a powerful debut. There isn't enough quality Australian horror fiction out there, and in the face of this, Dries proves himself an author to watch. " --Hellnotes.com
"For those of you who want to be sobered by your scares, I heartily recommend House of Sighs." --Adam Cesare, author of Tribesmen
"Aaron Dries has written a fast-paced, blood 'n guts, edge-of-your-seat horror novel that should definitely establish him as an author to keep an eye on ... So get on the bandwagon and get yourself a copy of Dries' freshman effort and be prepared to be blown away."
-- Dread Central

But they know that she’s threatening to kill them. She’s already shown she won’t hesitate to use her gun, and no one wants to die. They have no idea where she’s taking them or who will be left alive when they get there. The bus has gone far off its route, deep into insanity. And for most of the passengers, the next stop will be their last.
