…a damn good read. The set up seems like it will be a little cliched ghost story at first, but then it turns into something else entirely…I highly recommend this introductory story to what is promising to be the start of an interesting new horror universe! I can’t recommend this enough. Buy it, enjoy it and bite your nails waiting for the next book in the series!
