About The Book:
Two ten-year-old girls disappear from the grounds of Null House. The survivor is found the next day so traumatized she has no memory of what happened or who she is. The name barrette in her hair identifies her as Ari. Since her mother is dead, her uncle and aunt take her to their home in another state, but she never recovers her memory. Twenty years later she’s invited back to Null House. She doesn’t want to go. Ari has never told a soul about the child’s voice that whispers to her sometimes at night, but this voice tells her she has to go–because it’s time… www.redrosepublishing.com
I am going to admit something. When I went into this book after doing the interview with Jane Toombs, I thought, oh no…what if the book is horrible? I thought, here I have been built up by this Diva of our profession—so what if I open the book and I hate it? After all, I’m a picky reader. In fact, since I don’t have time to read anymore except on vacations because of my own writing career, it’s going to tick me off if this is a waste of time. And then if I have to say its a waste of time, which I will, rest assured– if it was—well, that itself will just tick me off even more.
Not the case.
This book reminded me of something I read as a teen. Not that the stories were similar but because both books had a gothic feel…a romantic gothic embrace that made me fall in love with it’s on- the- edge- suspense.
Yes, thanks to her, I am now addicted and you probably will be as well, if you read this book.
So if you are looking for something that sounds like this…
Pages bewitched with twists of Gothic spirit, on- the- edge suspense, and an aura of romance that is absolutely addictive.
Then this series is for you.
Awarding this book a Reviewer’s Top Pick
Cover (Rated 1-10): 8— I am not big on faces on a cover but sometimes I see a few I like. This one had an interesting feel to it because of its blurry design and darkly painted appeal. So yes, if I was cruising the book store, this one would catch my eye.
