Haunted houses make for an excellent backdrop for any horror story. It’s one of my favorite tropes in both movies and books.
Curse of Crater House gives that trope another breath of fresh air, by giving the main character special powers. Her work as a realtor, combined with her ability to “sense” houses’ personalities, was great. Bringing in a team of ghost hunters made the whole thing even better.
There were a lot of extremely creepy moments throughout this book, and I don’t get scared easily. The author surely knows how to set the tone for spine tingling creepiness.
What I didn’t like was that the characters seemed rather hollow, and were missing personalities. Also, the ending (and I don’t want to spoil it) was an extreme letdown.
Thanks to Netgalley for the review copy.
