What do a prospective spinster, boring accountant, rebellious girl, and a forward man all have in common?
They have experienced treatment at The House. Known as the local asylum, these people are part of the select worthy few who make it to this side of the building, one that the public doesn't know about. Admitted for psychiatric reasons, their loved ones dropped them off, hoping for a cure. Once inside its walls, The House quickly sheds its evil mystique. It transforms into a steamy stage where these special patients, called Admits, immerse themselves in carousing, rollicking, rambunctious delight. Strange rooms and secret hideaways rest deep within. Taboo deeds play out behind locked doors. It’s diabolical, beautifully horrific, transformative. It’s The House.

T.K.: A well written entertaining read, always a fan of fairytale or fable retellings this was always going to be a win for me. I found the characters likeable and relatable, the story was funny, paced well and enjoyable. Will be looking forward to future works by the author. (4 Stars)
H. L.: I loved this book, it was fun, and I've never read a fable book before. In the past, I have read books that conform to a pattern and this book does not do that. I enjoyed reading it very much, and I would love to read it again. It was a great story and I would recommend it to everyone that loves to read about a fairytale type of story.
