The place seems to have layers upon layers of supernatural history that continues to haunt the place.
Will this young couple find out what's going on or will they simply become another piece of history?
Pick this up to find out.
On the other hand, there are some issues with the book. It is unfortunate that in Chapter 28, Rolly makes the unchallenged observation that “Nothing has started more wars and led to more bloodshed than religion.” To some, this statement might seem harmless since this is, after all, a work of fiction. But it is disappointing to read Rolly express this erroneous view because he is portrayed as a scholar with a great knowledge of history. And other than this particular distortion of history, it appears that most of the other historical references in this novel have some bases in fact and are skillfully woven into the plot.
The writing style is mostly good. I like the inclusion of Richard Burton’s self-destruction quote, and I like Mr. Saunders’ creative similes, such as “She carried the grief around like a rotting egg in her pocket.” But, since the two protagonists are journalism students, it seems that they should be creative enough not to have to rely so heavily on the f-dud and other feeble vocabulary.
