    I feel for the writer hoping for genuine reviews of her hard work. To the person complaining it's short: this is obviously a short story by the standard conventions. They are good for phones and filling time on trips etc. In any case it is FREE! And as far as they go, it's terrific. The characters are vividly drawn, the setting eerie and the story compelling. The writing is professional and contains no grammatical or spelling mistakes, common with debut indie authors. She obviously cares alot about what she does and the least a reviewer can do is focus on the story and provide honest feedback.

    To first poster

    I am posting 5 stars to counteract the ingrate who posted 1star just to ask if the book was good. Writers work very hard on their stories, and I for one would be insulted if someone gave me one star without reading what I wrote! INSULTING! You want to know if it's a good book?? Here's a thought READ IT!

    Wow, some of you guys have a hard time reading the overviews. This is short because, as the description states in the bracket at the end, it is a short story! And if you cannot even read and understand the overview, it does not bode well for the authenticity of your complaints about editing and typos. The horror genre is filled with hackneyed and predictable outcomes (People die, which is depressing. If you want happy fluff, don't read horror) and this is certainly no worse than many published offerings. This was as much a character study as a ghostly exercise and I liked it!

    Excellent story!

    I loved this story, highly recommend it! The language is a bit odd & antiquated, but it does take place in modern times as cell phones are mentioned. If you can get past the odd language, it's a great, shorter story... creepy & fun.

    Why?

    Had it not been for the language, I would have given it 5 stars. You say rhis is a YA book but therw is no way I'd ever suggest this to my grown children or my grandchildren.
    Maybe next time you can use language more suitable for YA books. Something that has been passed through my family for generations:
    "The only people that use that type of language are ones who can't or just refuse to learn somthing better to say."
    People respect you more when you write without all that extra, unneeded language. Other than that, you are very good, your characters & all that was happening was brought to life. Keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to one with a better use of the Englosh language.

    Interesting

    This was a really good story. The beginning was slow and I was a little confused as to who the story was being told by... It came along quickly, though, and I was enthralled the whole time. I enjoyed reading!

    Not what I expected, and that's great!

    This was about a haunted house and how nobody comes back alive (sounds familiar, right?). It's based in rural England, and it reminds me of a good horror movie, just in words. There's suspense, mystery, and even a minor love interest. It's a great read.

    Little Aussie Mix

    I assume this is an Australian author, only as there are terms and sayings I am unfamiliar with, but other than that I really liked this story. I would have liked to find out what happened to Jace and Laini.
