What if you actually saw it? Then you tried to forget it for the next 30 years. And then, one day, you had to go back inside that house?

Shades of The Shining and IT here, but a lot more subtlety.
The Guardians starts off slowly but builds in a really satisfying and creepy way.
I'm sorry to say I found this book slow and dreary, if it is meant to scare, it doesn't. I barely made it to the end. The most exciting part was knowing I had finished it and could move on to my next book.
