A Thriller with Deeper Meaning

Posted on: December 5, 2008

A creepy old house in the woods, mysterious noises, and a frightening intruder add up to a book you can’t put down. When the Kings move into the old house in the woods, it’s apparent almost immediately that something isn’t right. Xander and his younger brother David think the strange manifestations are a cool adventure until they turn deadly serious. Then the brothers must team up to survive. Young adults will love the action and adventure of this horror story. Xander, the fifteen year old, is a particularly attractive character. Forced into the move against his will, he decides to make the best of it and manages to always stay one step ahead of his parents. Adults too will love this fast paced horror story. I can’t wait for the next installment.

The book, however, is not just a thrilling adventure story. It’s the story of a family. The life threatening consequences of moving to the “House of Dark Shadows” test the bonds of the King family threatening to tear them apart. But the family is stronger than the problems that surround them. This is also a story about loving and caring. It’s about making mistakes and forgiveness. Altogether an unforgettable read.
