Publisher's Summary

For nearly three and a half centuries, the Boylan House has stood at the end of Meeting House Road. And something in that house has been killing boys for centuries.

The town of Monson is a quaint and quiet New England town. Yet the house is terrifying and has been for as long as anyone can remember. Adults put the thing out of mind and ignore the fears of their children, admonishing them to stay away.

Too many boys have vanished into the swamps behind the house. Bodies never recovered. Nothing ever recovered. The families are left with their memories and the disturbing thought that the Boylan House had something to do with it.

Mason Philips knows better than that. He knows that there's something in the house. Something evil. Something hunting children from time to time.

And Mason has decided that it's time for the killing to stop.

The Boylan House Trilogy contains:

1. The Boylan House

2. Discoveries

3. The Deadwood Throne

    "Disappointed"

    I truly enjoyed the Moving In series but didn't like the narrator or halting speech. This trilogy was not nearly as interesting or creepy and the story seemed disjointed. However the narrator was much better. I would like to see this narrator do the other series. I would also like less casual profanity which I don't think is necessary.

    "Fast paced creepy tale!"

    This trilogy will keep you listening start to finish. The narrator does a wonderful job voicing the Boylan spirit as well as the rest of the characters. The author delivers a tale with a history stretching back 100's of years and multiple locations. Be ready to have that creepy house From your childhood Halloween memories come back to haunt you.

    "Original"
    Any additional comments?

    In this day and age it's pretty difficult to write an original "ghost" story - they all seem to bleed together somehow. But 'The Boylan House Trilogy' truly was a unique take on a haunted house, a ghostly entity and a spooky local, historical story. While I felt that some parts were a bit of a stretch, I thought that overall, it was a fun listen. I would recommend this book to ghost-story-lovers!

    Story
    "Scary!!"

    There is a house in nearly every town that stands abandoned and just left there. Well, the Boylan house is one of them! It has stood for centuries on Meeting House Road, New Hampshire. It's a house no-one dares to enter, and if they do, they usually don't come out. Also every year, around Halloween, boys seem to go missing in or around the house, never to be seen of heard from again. Just what is going on?

    Well, Mason Philips is intent on finding out what is going on. When he was a boy, on Halloween, himself and his friend decide to call to the house on a dare. Mason swears that a trap door opened in the roof and something pulled his friend into the house. Nobody believes him though and he goes through life remembering the house and wanting to see if it was just a young boys imagination. He goes back to try to find the truth, and what he unravels was shocking.

    This was awesome!! So creepy and scary and perfect for this time of year!! This is the type of book that would work well read at a camp fire. They are perfect little bite sized bits of spooky.

    Character wise, I really liked Mason. He has always thought about the house from his childhood and is finally in a position to find out more about it. During his research, he meets a lovely librarian, a police officer that is willing to help, and even his estranged Uncle, who has already dabbled with the house and the evil within. This ragtag group of people may just get to the bottom of what lies within the house.

    Plot wise, it's a really short read but packed with chills, thrills and enough of a spooky atmosphere that it will keep you on the edge of your seat. This author is fast becoming one of my go to ones for a short scary read! He knows how to tell a great story.

    Thom Bowers read the book well. He had plenty of different tones and inflections to make the story thoroughly enjoyable.

    I received this from the author. This in no way affected or influenced my thoughts!

    Story
    "Pleasantly surprised"
    What did you like best about The Boylan House Trilogy? What did you like least?

    You never knew what was going to happen next - this was actually a pretty good semi-scary story!!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ron Ripley? Why or why not?

    Definitely, I wasn't disappointed


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Thom Bowers?

    Yes, Thom was great. Loved how he was able to create a different personality for each character.


    Could you see The Boylan House Trilogy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think so! This one definitely had some great 'horror movie' elements, and I'd definitely watch it.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't give up on this one, it takes some time to get started, but it was worth it!
