Summary

What really happened to the girl who walked into the woods and vanished forever? It’s a never-forgotten mystery that clings like a shadow in a short story about dark memories and inescapable fears.

For disgraced professor Matthew Merle, the inheritance of his grandfather’s crumbling mansion is both a burden and an offer of safe haven. His childhood friend Claire, a psychiatrist, desperately needs a haven of her own after one of her patients unleashes his dark side. At turning points in their lives, it’s inevitable that they should return to the past. And to Merle House. It’s been waiting for them.

All My Darkest Impulses is part 1 of House of Crows, a four-part serial about friends with a shared history of darkness. They’ve spent their lives running, but they can no longer hide from the past. Each story can be read or listened to in a single haunted sitting.

Finally...some GOOD writing.

After listening to the disaster that was Luanne Rice's "Last Day," I was so pleased/relieved to stumble upon this series/author. Well-paced, interesting, delightfully creepy, and unpredictable. My only gripe is that I wish these were much longer. Her writing reminds me of Stephen King (and I have read all of his books). So glad that these were free for Prime users, or else I wouldn't have found Lisa Unger.

not a complete book

The only reason I put up with this book for seven chapters was that it was short.

it was not short. it was trunkated.

they want you to buy subsequent chapters.

No thank you. Crappy way to try and sell your book.

Very disappointing.

Not up to the usual standard I come to expect from Lisa Unger. Hopefully the segment is better

Disappointing Beginning to Series

This is the first book in the four book series called the House of Crows. A disgraced professor inherits his grandfather's old mysterious house. A house with a bad reputation. His childhood friend, recovering from a horrible event begins to hear the phantom that her patient heard.
First impressions are that this story seems forced. I expected much of what happened, and it ended rather abruptly. Hopefully, it will get better as time goes on. I recently finished a great book called the Chill, by Scott Carson and that book was wonderfully creepy and well written. This is trying hard to be frightening. The Young Blood series was more frightening than this.
