I really enjoyed this Douglas Clegg novel and will file it under My Favorites file. Yes, it was bloody and gory, but what else would one expect from a HORROR novel? The story line of the Harrow House kept me interested the entire way through. Some freaky stuff! Four stars instead of five for the grammar and spelling errors I noticed along the way. Great read! ~ DO

I had read Clegg' 'The Infinite' and it was one of the worst books i've read this year. Being the first Clegg novel I read it really turned me off to him. I got 'The Abandoned' as one of the many books I recieved for Fathers Day and put off reading until recently. I almost thought the hell with it....But I'm glad I didn't!! This book was AWESOME!! Blood guts and gore a'plenty!! Once it got into it it was relentless. The whole scenerio read like an attack of Romero type zombies!! Also the description of 'Harrow' when little Kasmir enters the house is phenominal!!! Horror and suspence at its best. The one (very very ) slight downfall of this book is the numerous characters Clegg introduces throughtout the first part of the book. But as you read on and discover the horrors that await them...WOW!

After reading 'Nightmare House' by Douglas Clegg, I was really excited about reading this book. I was certainly not disappointed after I finished this book. I was ready for a scary,keep the lights on all night book to read and I certainly got it. I'm ready to read it again!

This book continues the horror of a Haunted house called Harrow. As always, this book, can easily be a stand alone novel without reading the others, but I highly recommend them. Without giving anything away, a stranger comes to the town of Watch Point and has become the Night Watchman of Harrow to watch over the place. Alice, the town psychic, sees within this Nightwatchman the aura of death and knows that something is about to take place. Harrow has been asleep and has its moments of waking up from time to time. It would seem that the Nightwatchman is trying to do just that. When Harrow wakes, nothing in the town will ever be the same again. By all means, do yourself a favor and pick this one up, for you will definitely pay more attention to the many sounds your house makes during the night. And when your done, you just might find that there is a little Harrow in all of us. Happy reading!!!!

I guess if you are a fan of blood and gore, this book is for you. I find nothing scary in the least about character after character chopping up another character after character. As it is, you are never given the opportunity to feel 'drawn' to any one particular character, which left me with no feelings whatsover when anyone got killed....and that is all there is to it....one after the other getting killed. Ho hum...sorry...I'll stick to Dean Koontz. At least with his books, you become attached to his characters.
