This book was a genuinely creepy book in my opinion. It didn’t take long for it to get into the creepy ghost haunting. Normally I expect a bit more build up, but it was done well, giving me an eerie feeling throughout the whole book. I started it at night and got sufficiently creeped out, I could hardly sleep! I read some reviews that people didn’t think it was that scary but I definitely did. Then again I don’t think it takes much to scare me!
Lacey and her husband are tight on money and move into a starter home. Lacey is pregnant and can tell right away the house doesn’t want her. Drew then appears-a little boy, one who can get very demanding and jealous. But he, instead of only getting angry, has the power to kill. Lacey tries to make him calm down in order to keep her and her baby safe, and teaches him and tries to play games with him. It doesn’t work, though. Her husband is a practical man, who doesn’t believe her. The house, and Drew, tears apart her future family.
Lacey realizes the only way to stop him is to find out the truth, so she sets out to do exactly that. Of course, with Drew over her shoulder, it turns out to be a more difficult feat that she imagined.
I won’t tell you anymore and ruin the story, but I did very much enjoy the story. There was an unexpected twist at the end and it was certainly foreshadowed but I didn’t realize it until the end. This was a good horror story! Horror is one genre I normally don’t read but I was not disappointed. However, if you’re a scaredy cat like me, I suggest reading it in the middle of a sunny day! I give it four out of five stars.
