The Perry family's new house is perfect - except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

This one was a creepy, fun, spellbinding story. I could feel myself in each of the character's place in the story. It seemed hard to tell sometimes for me and for the characters involved, if they were doing things because of their own internal struggles or because the haunting caused them to do it. Especially in the beginning.
It was defintely a suprise ending. I did not see it coming. Sad, but a conclusion, which this reader personally likes to have in a scarey story. I would definately read it again. I have already recommended it to some of my friends who like haunted stories.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Better books available.
It was fine.
Yes,because they would have to give it an explaining ending.
This book had great potential. It was like the author got tired of writing it and was lost for an ending. It needed a conclusion of the build up of facts. Could have been great because the story was intrigueing.
Truly creepy. This may make you want to keep the lights on. It is a truly scary story of a family moving into a haunted house. Would love to see this made into a movie.
Bentley Little has written a story that keeps your interest. The suspense is dark and constant, and doesn't let up for the entire story. I will certainly listen to more of his stories.
I enjoy a good thriller as much as the next gal, and never tire of tired plots. But, this was the first ghost story that was HAUNTED BY embedded advertising, the kind of product placement that insinuates itself into movies. Now, how can you escape, suspend disbelief enough to get into this twisting, interesting plot of a blobby monster thingy causing trouble in a nice New Mexican suburb, when you are reminded at every twist and turn, of the our all-too-real consumer world? Everything from brands of breakfast food to television programs leapt out of every dark, shadowy corner.
I am not talking about one or two mentions, but a constant barrage of ads. Loved the book, but feel SLIMED. YIKES, those ads were the scariest parts of the book!! Instead of asking, "Who done it," I ask, "Why'd the author do it?"
IF, there was a conspicuous absent of PRODUCT PLACEMENT, the story has merit for its genre.
The narration was great. It was a good ghost story...I could really picture the characters and places.
The bizarre things that happened to the family.
Great voice...creepy at times!
Yes but couldn't.
If it weren't for the unnecessary sex scenes, this book could be a teenage novel. There is very little plot development and the story is quite predictable. I also didn't appreciate the preachy political commentary dispersed throughout the story. I haven't read any other books by this author and after this, I'm not inclined to do so.
prefers the darker side of fiction
worth the price of admission. not one of bentley little's hits, but not exactly a miss either. i enjoyed the ride.
I would love to once be told a story or watch a film just to be entertained and not have the author force-fit and inject liberal political views where they have absolutely no effect except to bring me out of the story and make me want to stop reading/watching/listening. But, this author just can't help himself. He goes FAR out of his way in telling a ghost story to bring up political issues (in great length and detail) and make the conservative character in the debate look like a beer drinking fool, and cast the liberal character in a good light.. It's nauseating and it completely ruined this book for me. I hope this liberal author is happy that he fooled me into buying his book and being subjected to his one-sided brainwashed liberal politics. thanks a lot.. how about next time you just ENTERTAIN ME WITH A STORY which is what I am paying you to do. At least put it in the description and warn people before they pay good money that this book has vomit-inducing liberal rants in it that are completely out of place in a ghost story.
I've read many horror novels and have seen many horror movies, but nothing has ever actually scared me. While this book didn't scare me, it did give me some fun chills. The era and place feel like characters, too. Definitely a fun read!
