Review: Spook House By Michael West

There are some places in this world that go far beyond any normal definition of “haunted.” These places are so evil, so diabolical, that they become gateways to Hell itself. The Fuller Farm is one such place. It is said that old man Fuller conducted unspeakable acts, blood rituals and human sacrifices, all in an attempt to gain the ultimate knowledge, the ultimate power. And then, he was killed-horribly murdered on his own lands, leaving the house to stand as a vacant monument to his wickedness. But once a door is opened, it can never really be closed. Now, the stars are right. The gateway is ready to once more unleash unspeakable horror upon the town of Harmony, Indiana. And this will be one Halloween that they will never forget!

First off Michael is a great writer, one I have been following for a long time, and Spook House is another fine addition to his canon of work.  I am always on the look out for books that make an ideal read at Halloween, and Spook House has now found a permanent home in my must read books for Halloween.

This is a punchy fast paced story that layers on the thrills, chills, a scares in an almost perfect fashion.  Full of wonderfully creepy descriptive passages, that are only matched by some of the wonderfully creepy creatures that stalk the corridors of this excellent book.  This is a great addition to the Haunted House genre, and by the time you finish reading this you will be jumping at all the strange noises, and shadows that have somehow taken root in your home

Dare you enter the Spook House, yes you should, but make sure you bring something to hide behind.
