This is short for a novel. I had high hopes at first, with the opening doors and spooky things. But things moved extremely fast; too fast, really. Soon there are so many people, dead and alive, that it’s hard to follow who is who. While there is tension and danger, things get resolved a little too easily- although not without losses. This is the first of a series, and it has the flaws that a lot of introductory stories have. The characters aren’t developed at all, but they have some promise. It kind of reminded me of old pulp stories, really, which isn’t really a bad thing.
That said, the bonus stories showed more development in the author's craft. I would love to see a rewrite and expansion of "Moving In". There's a good story in there, I would suggest hiring editors for professional development editing and line editing.
But Moving In needs work. It flowed somewhat well in the beginning, but eventually became tilted and seemed rushed. The climax didn't make sense. I really thought the writer just threw that together and didn't fine tune it. And when it came to the ghosts, they really weren't ghosts to me. The author mentioned they were ghosts, but I didn't get that impression when they talked. I know this is fiction, but those entities are way too tangibly engaged with the living. My opinion, may be fine for other readers.
I had the Kindle version. Format was great. Grammar wise? It's okay, but needs some tweaks in the flow of the words.
I won't be continuing in the series. It just wasn't able to keep my interest.
Moving In, however, was interesting, thrilling, fast-paced, amd fun to read. Ripley successfully wove the right amount of humor and creepiness together to balance each other out without making it one or the other. There was no incredibly long-winded and complex explanation for what was happening and I liked the extra twist at the end. No spoilers.
I only have two issues. 1) We don't get Leo's emotions or much of his thought process. We don't get much from any of the characters really except for Brian and even he's a bit lacking in that respect. 2) Their...dealings...with the major ghosts is too easy. I wanted more. I wanted it to be a bit harder. Whenever the going got tough, the POV changed to someone else who would show up after the big action was already done. This seemed to be more of a cop-out to me.
However, despite these failings, the story was AWESOME!! And the bonus chapters given for the next story are just as cool! I can't wait to read more!!
A fast paced horror read! I didn't want to put it down!
When Brian and Jenny Ray bought the house, they were simply trying to
start a new life after Brian's heart attack. It seemed like a nice and quiet,
but soon they realized that they are not alone. Ghosts of the previous
occupants - The Kenyon family - still live here and they want the Rays
gone! Must read! Features excerpt for sequel - Dunewalkers
