This book made me want to cover my eyes and hide in the closet - but I couldn't put it down long enough. You won't find a typical ghost or haunted house story here. The plot is original and kept me on edge from start to finish. Scott Nicholson has a gift for breathing life into his words, inviting us to step into his characters' world and share their experiences. If you're looking for horror with substance, this is the one for you.

A group of artists come to Korban House, in the North Carolina mountains, to take part in a six-week retreat. Korban House is an authentic piece of history ¿ the owner stipulated in his will that the house and lands were to be kept in the same condition as they were when he died 150 years prior, falling from the widow¿s walk to his death on the blue moon in October. Included in the group are writers, painters, a sculptor, musicians and even a parapsychologist. Korban House is also said to be haunted ¿ maybe that explains the mysterious woman in white that several of the guests see? Or the compulsion that several of the guests feel to work on their projects obsessively? And what will happen on the upcoming October blue moon ¿ the first in 150 years?
This was an insanely creepy story, and the tension is kept high throughout the book. Twists and red herrings abound, and I was certainly surprised at the events that take place toward the end. The main characters in the story are very well developed, and the plot flows along smoothly. However, many of the sub-characters are not even named, or if they are, they are kept so far in the background that you don¿t learn anything about them. However, I¿m not sure how they could have been developed without breaking into the flow of the plot; it just seemed like the place was overcrowded. That shouldn¿t stop you from reading this wonderfully scary book, though ¿ highly recommended!
