Could you survive a week in a haunted house?
Mara is the daughter of spiritualists. Her childhood was filled with seances, scam mediums and talk of ghostly presences.
When Mara finally left her family's home, she vowed she would never allow superstition or false religion into her life again. Now she's ready to start over with her fiance, Neil, in a world based on rationality and facts.
But her past isn't ready to let her go just yet.
Mara and Neil purchase Blackwood House, a derelict property outside of town. They're warned about strange occurrences in the crumbling building. Doors open by themselves, voices whisper in the night, bloody handprints appear on the walls, and cold spots linger in the basement, where the house's original owner was murdered.
But Blackwood was dirt-cheap and came with a large plot of overgrown land. Mara loves her new home, and disregards the warnings.
Because ghosts aren't real...

Is it mind-blowing? No.
Is it ground-breaking? No.
Is it everything I want whenever I look for a good old ghost story? Hell. Freaking. Yes.
It is well written, the pace is good, the build-up is perfect and the scary moments actually managed to scare me (well, almost, I'm big girl with a life-long ob...

People DIED here!"; realtor is all, "Que? N...

Not really that scary (notice I'm *not* classifying this one as "horror"), but a decent read. Has some creepy parts, but nothing that'd make me want to sleep with the lights on.

It was a pretty good storyline, however the overly repetitive nature of the interactions between the two characters was distracting. Then there were the small details that were overlooked (example, her cell phone dies and she has a generator that allows her to watch a move on the VCR). Those litt...

The pace is gr...

A little slow at times but enough action to keep it interesting. I wish there were more details to explain her extreme hatred towards spiritualism. It seemed a little overboard and hard for me to accept. Why would she hate all religions just because she was raised spiritualist? (I.e. making her b...
