My Review:

Now I have had this review and a couple of others sitting in my old computer that sadly I can no longer get into so I had to rewrite all of them all over again and re-read some books along the way so it has been a journey so lets move on :)

First of I would love to thank Kathryn  Knutson, for contacting me & asking if I'd like to review her book and if you know you so know  I jumped on that opportunity in a heart beat her book is so up my alley it YA creepy, dark, freaky & intriguing and the cover loveeee it!!!

Right of the bat t he book started off just the way you would expect any typical horror story, to start  slow  with lots of build up which is always so much fun, It starts with Cassie  her mother,  younger-sister, step-father and step-sister just moving into their new farm-house as a new family , Cassie and Ashleigh (step-sister) end up sharing a room together which is no fun since they dislike one another. But thats just the beginning of  the craziness   soon the two girls begin to notice strange things going on in the house, mostly in their shared bedroom  illusions and cryptic messages are showing up on walls.

Then one day Cassie's little sister  wanders off into the woods  stating Cassie was the one who led her there ??,When  in-reality she was waiting for her on the other side of the woods. As time progress and all the eerie stuff don't stop  Cassie, Ashleigh,  become more intrigued & along with their new friends they all  dive into the history  surrounding the house  first they find out a boy drowned in the pond in the forest behind the house spooky huh?? Then trying to figure out who or what is haunting them is making them all a little extra  crazy . But they all know  one thing  for sure they all agree that there is something or someone  watching them, and waiting for  one of them to venture out into the dark creepy woods alone!!!

My Final Thoughts:

Now  Mrs  Knutson,sure knows how to scare the crap outta you let me tell ya reading this book alone at like 3am not recommended,  cause lots stuff start popping into your mind & in reality you end up feeling like your Cassie and this is all happening to you!!!

The storyline  behind the spirit/s haunting Cassie is dark eerie &  friggin awesome with all of it  being uncovered you know  its well worth the read . The ending itself is worth every last page to-be exact   Thank god , there will be a sequel, out in June 2013,  cause lord knows I can't wait I'm dying for more of this  story especially after the way it ended.  In my books this was  an awesome début book for Mrs Knutson and an amazing read for me :D


  1. This sounds like the perfect read for Halloween! The blurb sounds interesting, and the cover alone is simple yet sends shivers down your spine. I'm sold!
