I was in a fantasy reading slump for months - and The Phantom Forest pulled me out of it.
It did not disappoint.
4 stars As usual, Ruth Ware wraps you around her twisty finger and pulls you in against your will.
3 stars Cinematic as usual, Ahlborn's writing in this book was just as good as her other ones. I can't say Within These Walls is my favorite of hers or her creepiest, but it's definitely good, though not up to standards as her other books.
3 stars “A wall, after all, isn’t just about keeping others out. It can also be for trapping people inside.”
The book starts off mid-action and does.not.stop.
3 stars 18 year-old angry, rebellious, stubborn Stella is in jailed for the murder of 33-year-old Chris, businessman and millionaire. The question is: did she really murder him?
The book is clawed through with suspense, and while reading most of it in one sitting, I was unnerved and sufficiently spooked.
Craven Manor was a (heartwarming?) haunted house novel.
Seed was a creepy, unnerving book on the curse of familial demonic possession.
