*REMINDER THIS IS A FEATURE NOT A REVIEW*
Since it is October, I will be featuring horror books ~ remember all things scary 😀
This week’s feature is Hawthorn Inn by Heidi Willard.
Jack Erikson doesn’t have great expectations when his mother moves them to an old decrepit inn in a town just as musty, but he’s unprepared for the oddities that start springing out of the rotten woodwork. New friends introduce him to legends and rumors that have swirled around the inn since time-immemorial, and he finds plenty of proof to believe them as strange noises and twisted shadows stalk the halls.
Worst of all, his estranged grandfather has invited himself to join them at the inn. Creepy doesn’t begin to describe that black-cloaked gentleman with the pale skin and weird, ever-constant glasses. Old secrets, mysterious sealed-up rooms and creeping shadows abound as Jack tries to manage his new life at Hawthorn Inn.
Hawthorn Inn is the first in a five novel horror/supernatural thriller series featuring Jack Erikson, a normal teenager with not-so-normal secrets.
I have read the first three books in this series and have enjoyed them all. I did struggle with the point of view (POV) when I started Hawthorn. I’m not sure if it was due to the fact I’m a writer or that it’s omnipresence. BUT the compiling characters and great story line kept me readying.
Currently, the first book is free for the kindle ~
