Book Description:

Pain, horror, fear- These are the things that bestselling novelist Lance Metzger's life have been comprised of. His childhood remains a riddled wasteland of abuse by a sadistic father and the abandonment of an apathetic mother. In turn, his only refuge became his writing.

When Lance loses his ability to write and becomes haunted by a nightmare that he'd thought was buried, he is drawn inexplicably to a house on the shores of Lake Superior where he finds his muse once again, but something is waiting for him when he arrives.


Now he must unlock the devastating secrets that the house holds and uncover the mystery of his own broken past before he loses his sanity, and perhaps his soul.

My Opinion:
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author took us on a fantastic thrilling tale of what Lance has gone through in his life and what happens when he buys this house. A house that he is drawn to. A house that he can't seem to get out of his mind. This was a well written horror/thriller tale and there is nothing that I love more than that. I found at times, I just didn't want to put this one down. I had to find out what was going on in the house and the author doesn't disappoint. You get to see what Lance's destiny is and why all this happens. This book had so many twists and turns and then the ending was just great! I totally recommend reading this book. It is great!

I give this book 4.5 of 5 stars!

  1. This is a new author for me. The house on the cover is awesomely spooky. Looking at the library website to see if they have this book!

    1. It was really good! I hope they do. Try it!
      Happy Reading!


  2. This sounds like a book I would enjoy reading. I like the premise of it, and really appreciate it is a 'stand alone' as many now arent. I usually read horror mysteries and in that genre. I have not hear of this author before and have been looking for new ones. I also tend to stick with books written by US authors as the language seems to flow better.
