Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Poe has all the good elements of an classic ghost story (spookiness, hauntings, a bad place, a protagonist who gets pulled into the danger) mixed with a good "who done it" murder mystery but it suffers from having a rookie author. This supernatural "who (what) done it" is a swirling narrative that has a few great moments of humor and an interesting atmosphere but it is ultimately brought down because the reader will have to reread and/or think back fairly hard to figure out some of the who did what to whom.... This new author weakness is particularly ironic/glaring because she references Stephen King (who is the master of making epic novels easy to read). Fenn is definitely a talent to watch but she could really have used an editor/reviewer to help her remind the reader about who is who (as the book is finishing).

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Where do I start? I really liked the premise of this book, but the ending really left something to be desired.

Dimitri Petrov, or D. Peters as his byline calls him, is a sad, young man. Mourning the death of his parents he drops out of college and embarks on a life with a less than satisfying job writing obituaries in a struggling local papers. Seeking out tips on his latest 'stories' Dimitri pines after the pretty voice on the other end of the phone at the local retirement center.

But things seem to be looking up for our struggling hero when his boss assigns him to cover a seance at the local haunted mansion on Halloween.

And right there, you know things are going to get ugly. And author, J. Lincoln Fenn (2013 ABNA winner in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and horror) does her best to get ugly, but things just never quite pan out for me.

Details that should have been explored are tossed out so casually that if you don't read carefully you are going to miss them. In this type of book you KNOW things are going to be connected, the mystery will circle around to Dimitri and his new girlfriend-the voice on the other end of the phone-Lisa, but the details of WHY this mystery centers on our central couple aren't really fleshed out. And for a book like this to work for me-that needs to happen.

I didn't dislike the book though, as I think Fenn came up with a great premise for her story. The ending is so open ended that if there isn't a second book, well, I would wonder WHAT Fenn was thinking. IF this is going to be a series, she is off to a decent start. If this book is meant to stand alone, then the ending borders on sloppy at best, lazy at worst.

I gave this book five out of five stars, and I need to remember to not read J. Lincoln Fenn’s work when I’m home alone. This book was awesomely scary, laugh out loud funny, and touching in unexpected ways. The characters are strong and relatable. The plot had interesting twists that made the read enjoyable and hard to put down.

What I loved about this book:
1. The humor, I never expected this book to make me laugh as much as it did. For me any book of the horror genre that can make me laugh as much as this one did deserves five stars. The funny character banter and perspective made them even more endearing to me.

2. The characters, all of them were very well done. Each one had something unique and unforgettable about them, which made remembering the many supporting characters easy. The descriptions of Dmitri’s co-workers, and the characters collected at the mansion on Halloween were unforgettable and so funny.

3. Dimitri’s grief and the impact it had on him felt real to me. Whenever his grief was touched on it rang with a deep sincerity. It’s the kind of honest insight I love, where I’m left wondering if I stumbled onto a part where the author bled into their work.

J. Lincoln Fenn has a clean style with a clear voice. Everything conveyed is necessarily, and her plot structure omits all trick ponies and plot devices. I really look forward to reading her future works.

I think you have to be a certain kind of reader to love this one as much as I did. A lot of people went into this book thinking, "Young Adult" but I have to disagree- my teen self would've liked it, but mainly thought it too weird and gorey. I would compare this with Odd Thomas- if you liked Odd, you'll probably enjoy meeting Dimitri.

The aspects that made this book perfect for me were the fact that Dimitri is a writer/journalist/sleuth- he has a book he's written that was a thousand pages and still going strong, he writes obituaries for the local paper, and has a droll humor/sarcastic personality. Other than the obituaries, that's pretty much me.

Also: an abandoned mansion, ghosts, and some Halloween mischief. I read this at the right time of year.

This is one of the most quotable books I've ever read- I was highlighting a lot while reading this on my Kindle. I think, for me, some of the best quotes are general thoughts I have had myself, and the author expressed perfectly:

"I have watched enough cheesy detective television shows in my young life to know that when one is presented with an inexplicable mystery, the first order of business (after procuring good donuts and coffee--check) is to create a wall of clues with photos of suspects and article clippings, preferably in an artistic yet seemingly random fashion."

~Poe by J. Lincoln Fenn, page 96 Kindle edition

""There was a day when writers actually read," he grumbles. "They could quote Keats and Socrates. Now anyone with a keyboard and a fifth-grade education can call themselves a writer.""

~Poe by J.
