As Angel and her family begin to confront the mounting perils in their new dwelling, increasingly bizarre events occur in Roundtree: terrible storms strike; seemingly inexplicable "accidents" transpire; and rumors of witchcraft, a phenomenon that figured in the town's history hundreds of years earlier, begin to resurface.

"Angel and Seth are two more of the immensely sympathetic and appealing teen protagonists that Saul excels at creating....[A] emarkably gratifying horror yarn." (Booklist)
I really enjoyed this book if you like creepy stories then this is the book for you,its a gripping 9 hours and quite scary in places highly recommended
This book is something that's been done a thousand times before.
It's the ultimate cliche of the horror house with a grimoire stashed inside.
Bulled outsider kid moves to new town check
Friend that is also and outcast. Check
Mum who just don't understand them check
Abusive/ alcoholic dad. Check
"in" rich kids who get the comeuppance. Check.
And so the list goes on.
If your looking for a book where you won't need to concentrate to much and don't mind thinking "I knew that was going to happen" then I say read it.
It's not very horrific at all ( well not when your looking for something along the lines of barker)
I give it two stars as I was in the mood for an easy read.
"Great story line.."
Starting out I had difficulty with reader. UT Story line kept my interest and I was able to listen whole book in one weekend
The book seemed to drag on. It did have some interesting moments. The ending was not what I expected and that pretty much ruined it for me.
