Nightmare House (Harrow #1)

Nightmare House - A Gothic Novel of the Haunted, #1 of Harrow (The Harrow Haunting Series) - Douglas Clegg

Meh. That's pretty much my thoughts regarding this book. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it, either.

 

I do feel pretty let down, though. From the synopsis, I was expecting a truly scary tale. Sadly, that's not what I got. It wasn't frightening in the least. The characters were flat, the writing could be a bit scattered at times, and the explanation of what exactly was happening at the house was...well, I don't want to say confusing, because I could follow along with what was happening, but more complicated than it needed to be, maybe?

 

I did find the part where the constable was explaining the history of the house interesting, though. That's what bumped it up to a two-star read for me.

 

Doubt I'll go further with the series.
