At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, is the Finch House. For years it has remained empty, overgrown, abandoned. Soon the door will be opened for the first time in decades. But something is waiting, lurking in the shadows, anxious to meet its new guests.
when best-selling author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the world's most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he wont be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.
This book was a fantastically spooky read. It had me on the edge of my seat all the way through honestly. The plot of this book really gave me Haunting of Hill House vibes, which is probably why I loved it so much. I loved all the characters in this book, they all had their own spin on horror stories which I imagine would be the case if we got together all of today's masters of horror..a few names spring to mind!
The plot of this book surprised me, especially when half way through the book they were already finished in the house, I was expecting them all to go for that interview at Kill Creek and never come back but the plot had other plans.
This book really gave me the creeps, the prologue really gave a great first impression as I was reading it in the evening and had to go sit with my fiance because I was so scared! Honestly though, (and this is me being the horror head I am) I wanted more! More scares, more ghosties and more horror!
I have to say the description in this book was beautiful, Scott Thomas really has an amazing way of painting and picture.The words and sentences he created left me in awe. Such excellent writing.
Overall a perfectly written, spooky thrill ride that will really send chills up your spine.
