The Exorcist’s House
by Nick Roberts
The Exorcist's House by Nick Roberts Crystal Lake Publishing This psychological thriller follows a family to their Appalachian farmhouse, where they encounter an unimaginable horror.
In the summer of 1994, psychologist Daniel Hill buys a rustic farmhouse nestled in the rolling hills of West Virginia. Along with his wife and teenage daughter, the family uproots their lives in Ohio and moves south. They are initially seduced by the natural beauty of the country setting. That soon changes when they discover a hidden room in the basement with a well, boarded shut and adorned with crucifixes.
Robin's Review: This is my first time reading a book by Nick Roberts, and I was not disappointed. This demon possession story is well written, with great storytelling that kept me turning page after page. I was drawn in from the beginning, and then after every chapter, I found myself thinking, "Just one more chapter, haha." I ended up reading the whole book in one sitting, late into the night, with the lights on, of course. It's so freaking good—it's very easy to become enveloped in the story. It's so descriptive and suspenseful that it's easy to visualize every detail and every scene in your mind. I love the definition of pandemonium in the front of the book. I wandered why he choose that word. I see now why. So, my question is this: if you have a basement door that is nailed shut and crap is happening all around you and you find old journals and VHS tapes all the time, why are you even still living in that house? The freaky horror twisty ending was a great touch.
