Review: The Haunted by Michaelbrent Collings

The Haunted by Michaelbrent Collings
Synopsis (Goodreads):
They have the beginnings of a perfect family. A husband, a wife, a baby on the way.

But something will stop them from being happy as they move into their new house: the power of the undead that roam the halls of their home.

The demons that have come to claim them. The darkness that seeks to destroy them.

The haunted.
My Thoughts: You know those days where you're looking for something creepy and gruesome and a little twisted? This book would work. It's dark and dangerous. It makes the dark places in the corner of your house look a little sinister. It screams at you and it keeps you on your toes.

Sarah and Cap's story seems straightforward on the surface but the more you read, the more you begin to wonder. Sarah's hints at something dark that happened in her past give even the smallest of incidents a sheen of terror. Cap - easy going, friendly Cap - begins to see things that shouldn't exist. Sarah worries that the things that keep happening to her are caused by her pregnancy. They're both teetering on the edge and things just keep getting worse and worse.

I can't say that the ending was a total surprise but I really loved all the insanity that led up to it. It was dark and bloody and once everything was laid out on the table it was wonderfully twisty.

  1. Creepy. I'm getting chills just thinking about this.

    (I may have to watch some Supernatural today, don't you think?)

    1. Oh my glob! YES! Supernatural would be PERFECT today!

  2. This cover is CREEPY!

    Personally, I think the dark corners of my house are sinister enough. Maybe I should stop hiding zombies in them.

    1. Heh! The cover was one of the reasons I decided to review this one. It gave off such an incredibly creepy vibe!

  3. The cover is freaking awesome! I am so getting into Horror books and I need not too. I actually have nightmares if the book is really good :)

    1. I love scaring myself silly. Well, I hate it and I love it all at the same time.
