My Review

5 Stars

Crowtree Manor has stood empty for many years. It was the place of a brutal murder that happened by the most unexpected person on Halloween night. Many years later a Halloween surprise goes horribly wrong. In the present, someone is renovating it but that person has so much more planned than just making a wonderful home to live in.

Those that cross paths with Crowtree Manor have secrets of their own. Stories of possessed computers, mummy princesses, stalkers and so much more intercept with the story of Crowtree Manor. Around and around we go from twisted story to another. Ramping up the tension until it all comes crashing down upon our heads.

I love a good horror story and this book touches upon several themes we see in those stories. I love how they all connect to the mansion and how the characters find their place in this house of horrors.

This is my first book in the Asylum series and my first from Matt Drabble. But this will NOT be my last. I loved how each story drew you in closer and closer to the heart of pure evil. If you love horror stories too you need to check this book out. Now I’m going to go catch up on the other books that I have missed.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Sage’s Blog Tours for the opportunity to read and share this book.
