    Pretty Good

    This book is interesting and rather well-written. It's a little gruesome but not really scary. The characters are very well-developed and believable and the ending is somewhat surprising, although the 'evil' husband part is kind of predictable.

    Excellent horror tale

    It is a house of horrors, an abode where Debbie and Don while lured unsuspecting visitors into a deadly trap. They took their victims into the basement, a torture chamber superior to anything Poe could have described and tormented them in ways to horrifying to mention. By the time they were finally caught, many people including children were killed at the hands of these sociopaths. The town, wanting no mementos of these deranged individuals, razed the house with a bulldozer. <P>Three ten-year-old boys were hiding in the woods that day, watching the leveling of the house. They disappeared after they stole three bricks from the rubble as souvenirs of the event. That theft set in motion a chain of events that would have a profound impact on them as adults. Two of the three boys left town as adults to make their future so that they could return with offerings for the demon they need to serve. <P> Sephera Giron has written a novel that takes her audience to the edge and brings them back so abruptly that one can¿t help but wonder if these events are based on facts sort of like Bates or In Cold Blood. HOUSE OF PAIN is horror at its best because there are so many twists and shocking turns that one can never predict what will happen next except for more entertainment from the dark side. <P>Harriet Klausner
