And now the evil has begun once again.

Even with the help of a paranormal investigator and a woman with ties to the manor’s history, Jim is left to answer the biggest questions of all: Why was he chosen to inherit the manor? And what does the evil want from him?

Unique haunted house tale with a great backstory..

The Demon of Mansfeld Manor by S.A. Jacobs was a beautifully written classic horror story with a unique and quite fun backstory. Jim inherits a huge estate and a large sum of money from a long lost relative that he never knew he had. She had assigned these gifts to him in her will that goes a few generations back. She addressed him by name and stated his birthday as another identifier...a few generations earlier. Thus begins the story of Mansfeld Manor. What Jim doesn't know at the time when he accepts his inheritance is that there are spirits and real living people as well that are determined to keep him from finding some secrets that the house has hidden within...

The Demon of Mansfeld Manor was a really well thought out and constructed story. It was placed really well and I listened to it every chance that I got until it was finished. As S.A. Jacobs debut novel, I can definitely say that I will be keeping my eye out for his next book. I felt that it fell apart a little at the end, but overall was a good listen. Fair warning though-I do love a good horror story, even if it is a little cheesy. Some people are complaining about a weak plot and such. I enjoyed it. So be forewarned!

Joe Hempel once again nailed the narration of this story. His performances always add so much to the listening experience and bring life to the characters. I'd recommend his narration any old day of the week. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Don't Inherit Haunted Houses

I quite enjoyed this story even though I didn’t think that it was scary at all. I found it to be more of a thrilling mystery that had some paranormal elements. It was more of cult horror with members who possess supernatural abilities. There was a level of suspense that kept me listening and wanting to know what was going on. The plot seemed to be quite unique and while I would have liked more haunting, I was really pleased with the entire story.

The characters were fairly generic, although I enjoyed each of them. This really was a plot driven story so I don’t think the characters needed to overly developed. They were quite likeable and the relationship between Jim and Cat was quite real and I found myself really wanting them to be a couple. While a serious character with a serious personality, I found David to be somewhat of the comic relief. I think he was my favorite character in the story.

And as a side note, it is a magazine. Stop calling it a clip. All I could hear was clipty clip clip clip.

Joe Hempel did a fantastic job. His ability to breathe life into the story and really make you feel it is second to none. The tension he brings to this story was perfect as he ratchets up his voice when needed.

NOT HORROR! Mushy, wordy romance!

Description is misleading. It's a romance. Boring story, no character development. WORDY! Could have been told in 4 short chapters.

Solid Haunted House Story

This was a well-narrated haunted house story that surprised me in that they can feel a bit cliche and predictable, but this one maintained my interest and threw a good number of solid chills and thrills as the story progressed. For a rainy day where a bit of an old-fashioned scare is desired, this is a good choice!

Classic horror ghost story. Very well narrated by joe hempel. Man received inheritance of haunted mansion and money he can use the money any way he wants but with one stipulation he must restore the mansion back to original. In all it’s supernatural history and haunting will he be able to succeed and live?
