Blakemort by Shani Struthers
This eerie ghost story is a triumph of Christmas themed chills, reminiscent of a story by James Herbert I read as a young teen.The tale is more chilling because it’s animosity is focused on a young girl and her brother , brought to the house by a broken and grieving mother recovering from a marital betrayal, who is oblivious to the tainted place she has brought her offspring to. Attacked and by ghosts and the house itself, a beacon for evil and death it would seem.These spirits are not seeking release, they enjoy torturing, perverting and manipulating!
This is the first of Shani Struthers works I have read but it has definitely whetted my appetite to read more of the Psychic Surveys series.
A Perfect read next to a warm fire and perhaps one extra lamp on in the bedroom in case your own house begins to feel that little bit oppressive.
