APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Terror stalks a family for generations in this novel from horror master Tananarive Due. Seeking closure, attorney Angela Toussaint decides she’s ready to return to her grandmother’s house in Washington State where her teen son tragically died. What awaits her isn’t peace of mind, though—instead, it’s an evil spirit with a violent grudge against her family. Working with multiple timelines, Due brings us along for a frightening cross-generational fight against the malevolent force by Angela, her grandmother, and her son. Jumping between these three perspectives in three different time periods, Due keeps you feeling scarily off balance. This is a soul-shaking haunted house tale of the highest order.
I could not put this book down! It is an amazing story and very spooky!
Good until ending
It just got really unscary. It started off string and weird and as it progressed towards the ending, it honestly got super boring.
Read this book!
Gripping and engaging with likable, complex characters. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for something to carry you away
