Overview

Some houses should be left alone.

In 1972, twenty-five people were brutally murdered in one of the bloodiest massacres in Texas history. The mystery of who committed the killings remains unsolved.

Forty years later, Sarah Donovan is dating an exciting man, Dean Stratton. Sarah’s scared of just about everything—heights, tight places, the dark—but today she must confront all her fears, as she joins Dean and another couple on an exploring adventure. The old abandoned Blevins House, the scene of the gruesome massacre, is rumored to be haunted.

The two couples are about to discover the mysterious house has been waiting all these years, craving fresh prey. And down in the cellar they will encounter a monstrous creature that hungers for more than just human flesh.

    Lock the doors and turn on all the lights because horror author

    Lock the doors and turn on all the lights because horror author Brian Moreland is at it again with The Witching
    House, a haunted house tale that will have you on the edge of your seat.

    Brian is one of my favorite authors, and a reliable go-to guy when I’m looking for a little something to get the
    blood pumping. If you haven’t read Dead of Winter, I strongly advise you to give it a try.

    The Witching House is a standalone horror novel that can be read and enjoyed by itself but you can get a little
    more background info on the house and the witches who lived there by reading the free prequel, The Girl from
    the Blood Coven.

    Otis Blevins, who we met briefly in the prequel, is a pig farmer with a special job. It’s his responsibility to feed
    the house, although he provides a steady supply of pig instead of what the house would prefer to eat.

    Unknown to Otis, a group of adventure-seekers are about to arrive, unknowingly tempting the old house with the
    meat it craves. After ten years of a boring marriage, Sarah was looking for a little adventure, and she found it
    with Dean, who was eager to take on almost any challenge. After months of dating, he’s managed to talk Sarah
    into accompanying him and his friends, Casey and Meg, on one of their outings as urban explorers, where they
    explore abandoned buildings. To add a little extra excitement to their outings, Dean and his friends look
    specifically for buildings that are supposed to be haunted.

    The group is led to the house by Ronnie, a fellow urban explorer who also happens to be a lot more. Intrigued
    by the bloody history of the house, the explorers are anxious to start looking around, but they get a lot more
    excitement than planned when they enter the house that eats people.

    While Sarah, Dean, Casey, and Meg are the noticeable main characters, there is one more subject in the novel
    that is just as interesting. Otis is a kind-hearted guy that’s been surrounded by evil all his life, and his story adds
    a lot of emotional impact to balance out the horror of the house.

    As far as surprises go, the plot will be recognizable to anyone that’s watched a few horror movies. A group of
    unsuspecting people enter the Bad Place, and lots of death and destruction follow. You’ll probably even be able
    to guess who survives, but there are still plenty of twists and turns to keep you from getting bored. Just when
    you think you know how something is going to go, something unexpected will send things in a completely
    different direction.

    Fans of horror will have a bloody good time visiting The Witching House.

    Very creepy and atmospheric. Not sure about the ending, but I think I'll read it again and see if it makes more sense a second time around. Complex writing.

    Worst Brian Moreland so far

    This is the worst piece of work published by Brian Moreland so far. It was a predictable piece of horror garbage. I couldn't help but to crack up laughing at the ending it was like reading a romance novel.
