Moving can be stressful at the best of times. New houses make new noises, the groaning of pipes, the settling of wood, the sound of footsteps… down on their luck Sam and her family accept their cousin’s generous offer to move into a long abandoned building owned by his late father. The agreement was simple, they would stay but in return they had to renovate the place. It was run down, after all, there hadn’t been a soul there for years, at least not a living one.
I’d place this firmly in the point horror genre, it reminded me so much of the books I read as a teenager/YA. It’s well-written and the plot is continually driven forward by events. The author sets a good atmosphere and manages to create a good air of tension.
