If you will indulge me a minute, while I ramble. I am a reader. I am never without something to read. I over the years have found books by accident or suggestions or through recent years blog reviews. So if you will a little 6 degrees of Michael West. My husband years ago said that I should read Stephen Zimmer’s Crown of Vengeance, My husband knows me well and I loved it. As I got to know Stephen he suggested I read Cinema of Shadows by Michael West, I trust Stephen so I did and I was hooked. I love horror. I love vamps, lycans, slasher movies, I love it all but it had been awhile since I had read a sleep with the light on horror story with a story and characters that I like. So I wanted to take moment to publicly thank Mr. Zimmer for that and with that said I will be honest and say that Michael West is of one of my favorite all time writers. His writing is smart, is stories are intense and captivating. He is one of the rare ones that I can honestly say I have loved everything he has written. But I will stop going fangirl all over the place and get to it. I begged to be on Michael West’s blog tour and I am so excited to be on it. His new book is Spook House.
Well I guess by know you can tell I loved it. West can make scary monsters and people to care about that are also scared of scary monster leading you to care about the people put in wonderfully scary spots. I started reading this book and I literally could not put it down. So just to sum it up this book is awesome, fun, scary, clever. This is a book that will not disappoint.
My Rating: 5 out of 5.
Synopsis of Spook House:
There are some places in this world that go far beyond any normal definition of “haunted.” These places are so evil, so diabolical, that they become gateways to Hell itself. The Fuller Farm is one such place.
It is said that old man Fuller conducted unspeakable acts, blood rituals and human sacrifices, all in an attempt to gain the ultimate knowledge, the ultimate power. And then, he was killed–horribly murdered on his own lands, leaving the house to stand as a vacant monument to his wickedness. But once a door is opened, it can never really be closed.
Now, the stars are right. The gateway is ready to once more unleash unspeakable horror upon the town of Harmony, Indiana. And this will be one Halloween that they will never forget!
Michael West is the critically-acclaimed author of The Wide Game, Cinema of Shadows, Skull Full of Kisses, and The Legacy of the Gods series. He lives and works in the Indianapolis area with his wife, their two children, their bird, Rodan, their turtle, Gamera, and their dog, King Seesar.
Every Halloween, he turns his garage into a haunted house
Awesome art that can be found in the pages of Spook House. Art is done by: Matthew Perry. SSP has amazing art on all of their books.
