Summary

I live next to a haunted house.

I began to suspect something was wrong with the gothic building when its family fled in the middle of the night, the children screaming, the mother crying. They never came back to pack up their furniture.

No family stays long. Animals avoid the place. Once, I thought I saw a woman's silhouette pacing through the upstairs room...but that seems impossible; no one was living there at the time.

A new occupant, Anna, has just moved in. I paid her a visit to warn her about the building. I didn't expect us to become friends, but we did. And now that Marwick House is waking up, she's asked me to stay with her.

I never intended to become involved with the building or its vengeful, dead inhabitant. But now I have to save Anna...before it's too late for the both of us.

Spooky stories

Love Darcy Coates’ ghost stories! They are perfect to listen to while I’m busy at home. I’m slowly working my way through as many titles as I can read and listen too. Keep them coming please, they are so wonderful and I just can’t get enough.

Beginning was strong....ending, not so much

(NOT SCARY......AT ALL!!! MILDLY CREEPY AT BEST) It started off pretty good, moved along nicely, but it went south really quickly after chapter 23. It just seemed like the author either gave up or didn't know where to take the story. By the end of the book I just wanted it to be over. I didn't even care what happened to the characters.

Not a fan

I really didn't like this narrator. The narrator's voice inflection was that of a robot and was so irritating that it was very hard to finish the book. I think the book would have been way more fun to listen to if someone else had narrated and put some passion into the words.

Couldn't predict the ending

Story line moved right along & held my interest. The 5hr listening length was perfect. I truly enjoyed this book and I didn't predict the ending Good book.

wish it had more spirit action

I love spooky stories, but I guess I like demons and dark spirits more than ghosts. they are much more scary. I guess it's because they are related to hell. still, I couldn't wait to see what happened next. and the narration was spot on. could really tell the different characters were speaking.
