    Tananarive Due, author of The Living Blood won the American Book Award and is praised as Stephen King's equal by Publishers Weekly. In The Good House, Due sets a story of ancient powers and modern retribution in a small Pacific Northwest town. When a young woman returns to her grandmother's empty mansion, she is pitted against demonic forces that have poisoned her family for generations.

    Overall

    I usually don't write reviews, but I felt this was an exception. I have read other books by T. Due, so I wasn't disappointed in her writing skill. Some people complained that the book was too long and drawn out. But I didn't find that to be the case.
    It was easy to identify with the heroine, and I felt her pain and her joy. The ending instead of a letdown, as some said, was more of a relief and a cleansing for me. The narrator was excellent, and it was well worth my time.

    In Dark Corner, a Mississippi backwater harbors a growing evil. After David Hunter learns of his estranged father's death in a freak boating accident, he travels to the famed author's home in the quaint burg of Mason's Corner to discover the man he never knew, and something terrifying about himself.

    Overall

    This was a fun way to spend some boring afternoons or nights. The story developed immediately and it takes you for a ride. The narrator was talented in going from one voice to the other, so you were never distracted from the story. I hope there will be a continuation of the hero in a sequel.
