A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead House author Dawn Kurtagich
I stayed up until 1am to finish reading this book (which annoyed my SO to no end). I had to finish this book because it had such a grip on me. It scared me to death and fascinated me at the same time. When I can’t sleep after finishing a book because it creeped me out, you know that it was good.
This book is written in such a different fashion, it is hard to explain. One chapter, you are reading in 1st person and then you could be reading in 3rd person. I don’t like it when the book jumps around like that but in this case, it worked. You also get to read excerpts from Silla’s diary that are creepy. I won’t go into it but I got the chills from reading it.
This book also fucks with your mind. I won’t go into it but oh baby, things are defiantly not what they seem in this book!!!
Like I said above, this book is a mind fuck. The huge twist at the end threw me for a loop. I didn’t even see it coming. Not a hint, nothing.
