I had been so excited when I heard Madeline had a new book coming out. I LOVED the Asylum series and I'm 35 years old! I will say it took me a but longer to really get into this book then it did with asylum and I was slightly disappointed with the pictures, but I ended up enjoying it and really hope she's working on book 2!

House of furies by Madeleine Roux tells the story of Louisa, a fortune teller, who is given a gold coin by an older woman and offered a job at Coldthistle House. There’s more to the old woman than Louisa realizes and she’s not sure what to think of her. On their way to Coldthistle House, the wagon wheel breaks and a passing wagon stops to help them. These travelers are on their way to Coldthistle House too. Once Louisa finally reaches their destination, she finds out more than she bargained for and discovers that she will supposedly never leave. The art on the cover and introductions of the chapters are beautifully spooky and appropriate for the story. With interesting relationships and creepiness, I read this book nonstop. 4 Stars!

This was an interesting novel. This was a novel that I went blind into, as it looked interesting and spooky so I went for it. I didn’t realize that it was the beginning of a series as it ended without a huge cliffhanger but it concluded with a powerful punch. I will continue with the next novel as I need to see what happens with the characters and what will happen at Coldthistle House. I am hoping there will be more birds, that Louisa will take hold of her heritage and that Lee will make an appearance. When Louisa is offered a job at Coldthistle House she figures that she is gaining shelter and employment. Secrecy, death, excitement and horror was not on her list Louisa lived day-by-day until she met up with Granny. Granny is known to the guests of Coldthistle House as Mrs. Haylam and Louisa feels that Granny undergoes a transformation when she bears the official title on the premises. Louisa may know the way of the streets but when she gets to Coldthistle House the rules have changed. She becomes relatively bright as the days pass but she has not grasp who she really is. Following the orders given to her my Granny, Louisa does her job but there are other things that Louisa is interested in while living in the house. Who exactly are the individuals who stay and reside there? The longer Louisa stays, the more she realizes this is not the place she believed it to be. Is this really a place that Louisa wants to stay at to save up her money or should she leave now while she can? It’s a hard choice and it gets to be more difficult the longer she stays. Helping out Lee, she finds that this simple task is far from simple. The ending was nonstop action and I was torn for who I wanted to succeed. I can’t wait to see what transpires in the next novel.

Very interesting introduction of characters and setting. Would have liked there to have been more explanations and less mystery. Also thought that there should have been more warnings for Louisa instead of waiting till after she made a choice.

Dark, atmospheric, and eerie, House of Furies is the surprisingly touching tale of a young girl finding her place in the world. When I first picked this book up, I expected the young adult version of Stephen King's horror novels based on the cover and the marketing. However, the darkest sins in this book are committed by humans rather than the paranormal inhabitants of Coldthistle House. Set in the 1800s, this story begins with the runaway Louisa Rose Ditton telling fortunes on the street, attempting to earn a living. After running afoul of the townspeople, Louisa is saved by an old crone and brought to Coldthistle House to serve as a maid for the guests there. On her first night there, she runs into some ghostly apparitions and a very strange book, changing everything she thought she knew about the world. She's forced to question if the true monsters are Mr. Morningside and the other paranormal inhabitants of the house or if the true monsters are really the hotel's guests. Louisa was such a spunky and likeable protagonist. She was forced to confront some difficult moral decisions in this book and she handled them with grace and maturity (well, mostly). She's also tenacious, as demonstrated by her constant search for answers to the mysteries she finds at Coldthistle. The other characters, with the exception of Mr. Morningside, weren't quite as vibrant for me though. I was lured into the beautifully written and atmospheric world of House of Furies by the multitude of mysteries. Just when I would see the answers to one mystery, another deeper one would appear. There are some horrific things that happen but those serve more to shine a light on the darkness that can hide in a human soul than to create a paranormal horror story. It's good that this is the first book in a series because, like Louisa, I want more answers than I was given in this book. House of Furies is an excellent read for those who enjoy a gothic, dark, and atmospheric read. Be prepared to question everything and to find yourself engrossed in this beautifully written series opener. *Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This cover really grabbed my attention first, and although I haven't read any other books by this author, her name caught my attention second because of her Asylum series, and I immediately requested this novel. House of Furies is very well-written, with incredible imagery. From Mr. Morningside's office, to Coldthistle House, to the fate of some of its inhabitants - the descriptions were eerie and vivid. Louisa's character was admirable in the way that she stood up to Mr. Morningside and demonstrated strong loyalty to her friends, yet I also appreciated her flaws, which made her character more interesting and complex. Despite Mr. Morningside's alleged identity, I enjoyed his character and found myself agreeing with some of his actions. As with most gothic horror, this book is more of a slow burn, but a very enjoyable, creepy read. Although classified as YA horror, this would also appeal to adults. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the digital ARC.
