“On a hilltop bleak and bare
looms the castle of despair,
only phantoms linger there
within its dismal walls. ...
Tortured spirits whine and wail,
they grope and grasp, they wildly flail,
their hollow voices rasp and rail
beneath the moldering floors.” 🏚
I'm not sure why I didn't review this when I read it as I really liked it & it's easily one of the best ghost stories I've read in the past couple of years. Three friends travel to an isolated village to renovate a house. Strange & inexplicable events begin occurring. I found this book to be atmospheric, clever & unsettling.
