A wonderfully imaginative take on the haunted house story that is set in a universe similar to the one in Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks. Every nine years a peculiar brother and sister invite a different guest to their home. The guest begins a macabre journey from which there is no return. I was so entranced I read it in one sitting! ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight
