Yet another book I had high hopes for, but Boone could NOT deliver & I cannot help wishing I could get the hours I wasted reading this back. I'm not sure I've ever read a novel with so much unnecessary repetition & lack of plot advancement. Roughly 300 pages in things finally started happening, but those events were poorly developed so it was impossible to become emotionally involved or simply entertained. Big fail!

⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Mansion is sort of a high-tech, Rose Madder meets The Shining. The first few chapters were long but extremely descriptive. I felt the story started to really take traction after Emily and Billy agree to move into Shawn's next-generation, childhood home. Nellie makes a decent protagonist, however, I was left wanting a bit more.

Rating: 💀💀

Way too slow, way too focused on a lover‘s quarrel.

I was not a fan of this book. It‘s categorized as horror but there was absolutely nothing scary about it. I can see this being science fiction. The story drug and I found it super boring.

Billy and Shawn started building a computer program years ago in a cabin beside a haunted mansion. Billy left with Emily and Shawn started a company and become a multimillionaire. Shawn wants to start a new project with a program that him and Billy started years ago. He has to talk Billy into taking the project as well as Emily. And they are to live in the mansion that Shawn has rebuilt.
I loved this book. It is my favorite of the year.

I really enjoyed this well paced book. The Nest and Eagle Logic were well done and fascinating, my favorite part of the book. Look for this early Dec 2018.
Thanks to Emily. Bestler Books/ Atria for this e-ARC.
