Susan Dayley has an insane imagination and I was just swept away with the details of the machine work and descriptions throughout the house.
Step into this novel for a adventure in a time little remembered in history. 5 stars!
Everything about this book was cool. I loved the idea of the house. Everything about this book is imaginative! I read it in just two sittings. It was addictive and I can’t wait for book 2. Really, my favorite part about this novel (YA by the way), is the eerie feeling that follows you throughout the chapters. Even though it isn’t technically a Halloween story, it is perfect for this season.
The sub-themes explored in this book that resonated with me include family upheaval or discordance and the challenges of maintaining one's identity and trying to fit in with family values and expectations. The story left several chills down my spine, but it was not gory or dark horror. It had all the elements of a ghost story - scary, intriguing and captivating. Susan Dayley displays her master story telling abilities in this book which will no doubt be thoroughly enjoyed by readers that enjoy ghost stories.
It was the perfect combination of spooky, mystery and romance. The creepy Kavanagh house, with its puzzles and secrets, was vivid and real and made me wish I could go check it out in person. The story was so beautifully written that the scenes seemed to play out in front of me.
There is so much to like about the main character, Parker. She’s smart and brave with a huge heart. She makes you want to team up with her to figure out the secrets locked inside the haunted house. And all the twists throughout the story kept me guessing at every turn. It’s the kind of book that whisks you into a whole other world.
I highly recommend this book for both teens and adults. But beware of reading it at night. It’s impossible to put down and will make you want to sleep with the lights on!
My other favorite part of this story, aside from enjoying a good scare, was the environment. The details in the house are amazing. There are puzzles around literally every corner and the author has clearly done her research and created a character of the house itself. I also liked the quirky real characters, like Parker and Mason and with their unusual talents.
Fans of the TV series, The Ghost Whisperer, would probably enjoy this book as well. So if you like a clean ghost story, give this one a try!
