Overview

The House of Usher is built on death itself - and now it has a new master...

For generations the House of Usher has grown wealthier and more powerful on the invention and sale of murderous military weapons. But another evil has lived and grown within the House of Usher - a legacy of depravity and bloodshed that goes back for generations, and stains the hallways of the family mansion.

One young heir, Rix Usher, is reluctant to return home. But the House of Usher has chosen him to take the reins from his dying father... to learn the house's terrible secrets. Joining in a ritual of fantastic evil, he will be forced to unleash the dreadful powers of Usher...

As the bestselling author of the novels Swan Song, Boy's Life, andMine, McCammon proves that he is a writer of brilliant versatility and consummate skill. Taking up the tale begun by Edgar Allan Poe more than a century ago, this spellbinding story tells of the terrors of a new House of Usher. "A superb job."--Booklist. Previously published by Ballantine.

    Outstanding,Disturbing,Warning For Parents

    I had a lot of doubts before reading this book.The whole idea of continuing an amazing classic had me skeptic.But McCammon delivers with one of the most scary,disturbing,pulsepounding novels I have ever read.Anyone with small children beware of the ending,you may lose sleep that night. But ultimately one of his best.

    Good book but

    This book had a creative and imaginative storyline
    My only complaint would have to be that the final reveal was underwhelming and weak so, I have to rate it as three stars for effort
