From the author of MALAKH comes a dark tale of black magic, obsession, and the price of covenants with the fallen.

The Wyckham House has stood for centuries, its origin unknown, its history black and bloody. Aaron Schaefer came away from his experience with “the devil’s mansion” with amnesia and an aversion to specific people…and to the full moon.

Definitely not for the faint of heart. With very obvious overtones of ritual sacrifice, black magic, torture, and rape this book covers just about every element of darkness one could want, or fear. The author does it very well, too. If I had any complaints it would be that at times I just wanted things to move faster.

Right from the moment the main character enters the town that most of this takes place in, things just feel wrong. The sense of wrong is easily conveyed in the descriptive writing,

I had read everything else by Sharon Gerlach and had been patiently waiting for this book to be released. It sounded so spooky. I was not disappointed. Wyckham House is dark and mysterious with elements of black magic, sacrifices, and evil, but also true love and hope. There are a couple of mysteries that do get solved before the end. This book kept me entertained, and I was satisfied at the conclusion. This author has a writing style that always pleases me, and I can't wait to read the next boo ...more

I first read this book in its early, unedited form years ago, on a site called Writer's Cafe. Now many moons later, I've edited and (of course) read all of Sharon's books, although this one is still my favorite. I totally identify with Kim and Ron. Stayed tuned for her sequel to Wyckham House, title the Condemned, where we can watch as Kim's recklessness reeks more havoc on her life, and watch as Caleb become something almost endearing. Will there be redemption? Read and see...

This book is all sorts of crazy. And creepy. And complicated (in a good way). And did I mention crazy?

4 1/2 stars
This is a genre I would not normally choose but having already read two novels from the same author (in another genre), I was willing to give it a try. I downloaded the sample, and it was enough to hook me.
The writing is extremely compelling and the characters very realistic. The story, though dark in theme, has an element of pragmatism that made it easier for me to read.
I love this author and her writing style.

This book had the right mix of mystery, love, witchcraft, and other paranormal elements. The characters are unforgetable as well as the plot. At first I was confused but after the first couple pages everything snapped into place. I read this book in two days, the whole time I was sitting on the edge of my seat. There are a few funny moments as well as sad.

Found it for free on my Nook. It was slightly predictable but an interesting read.

I am a writer. Enough said. ;-)

I love to hear from my readers what worked for them and what didn't in my writing.

Also, if you'd like me to read & review your book, please let me know.
