I LOVE THIS REVIEW OF THE DEAD GAME!
October 24, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
The Dead Game by Susanne Leist is a top-notch haunted house horror thriller. The author excels at spooky descriptions, terrifying scenarios like opening a door and stepping into a black abyss or forever trapped in a dark maze with endless rooms stretching into infinity. Her characters are perfect and the reader can easily connect with them.
Linda moves to the perfect seaside town to open up a book store. But soon strange things happen that peaks her interest in the old house on the hill. She and her friends receive an invitation to a party at the house. This screams DON’T GO – but her inquisitive nature wins over.
Here the author ramps up the action full of terrifying games that defy the imagination as the house wants to play. This reader had nightmares after this book and even so, needs to know what the house owner has to offer with further games of the dead.
This is a truly scary read for Halloween and is suitable for 13+ and adults.
FIVE STARS for this haunted house horror and highly recommended.
My first book, The Dead Game, is a mystery in the form of a supernatural thriller. It has all the elements of a typical murder mystery, complete with suspects and dead bodies, but it stretches your imagination beyond the proverbial box. In the coastal town of Oasis, where the weather is warm and beautiful, lies an undercurrent of evil ready to ensnare its innocent residents. Amid murders and disappearances, Linda and her friends must uncover the one who is controlling the deadly game and everyone else in town. What is hidden behind the stately closed doors of the remote town? Read and find out.
