Every house has its own history and its own secrets. Some secrets are just darker than others. And some are even downright terrifying.

When the Johnsons moved into their new house, they didn’t expect that weird things would start to happen, objects would move on their own, and that the house’s history would come back to haunt them.

But I did.

The Blood That Defines Us is a gloriously rich mix of gothic elements combined with a new warped and twisted take on evil and what it truly is.

There really isn’t much to say in this review other than that this is a really, really good read.
It’s been a long time since I have read something that has creeped me out so much that I can’t stop thinking about it. It was so creepy at times I couldn’t help but shudder which makes a really good horror story.
