Publisher's Summary

An all-new creepy fantasy series from the New York Times best-selling author of Asylum.

After escaping a harsh school where punishment was the lesson of the day, 17-year-old Louisa Ditton is thrilled to find employment as a maid at a boarding house. 

But soon after her arrival at Coldthistle House, Louisa begins to realize that the house’s mysterious owner, Mr. Morningside, is providing much more than lodging for his guests. Far from a place of rest, the house is a place of judgment, and Mr. Morningside and his unusual staff are meant to execute their own justice on those who are past being saved.

Louisa begins to fear for a young man named Lee who is not like the other guests. He is charismatic and kind, and Louisa knows that it may be up to her to save him from an untimely judgment. But in this house of distortions and lies, how can Louisa be sure who to trust?

Captivating

Absolutely amazing! Between the story itself and the performance of the reader, I had a hard time leaving the car to go into work. Absolutely shocking, exciting and thrilling to the very end!

One heck of A writer

Amazing storyteller, crisp defined characters, and awesome pacing. Narration sounded a little to cheerful for the subject matter, yet didn't detract from the haunting and original story. Worth a credit.

Whoa..!

I didn’t know if I would really like this book all that much but I loved it! I’ve already got the next book and the rest is in my wish list and my ears are patiently awaiting me to hurry up and keep listening so I can get to the next one!!!! The ending got me hard! I kept trying to be a detective during the book to figure out each character that visited Coldthistle house, some I got wrong but some I got right and it’s such fun! Can’t wait to continue listening to the next one!

This was an interesting story. It was a bit slow and if I had been reading it actually I probably would have given in and given up at about chapter 10. The story’s flashbacks were not needed. They could have been presented in a different way as to not cause the story to feel broken down and full of holes. The story felt rushed and just thrown together.
