When Caitlin and Trevor move into their new home, Caitlin realizes there is a terribly legacy which she must fight to keep Trevor from fulfilling. There is much Caitlin doesn’t know about the curse which afflicts Trevor’s family and what she must do to defeat it. Ms. Revezzo has written a truly haunting novel of love, curses, and the power of perseverance. The deep and complex characters and disturbing setting is a brilliant and compelling combination. I adored Caitlin’s strength of character in ...more
The Artist's Inheritance centers on Caitlin and Trevor as they relocate to Florida after the untimely death of Trevor's brother. As we watch them settle into the new-to-them house and begin the process of cleaning up the bits of his brother's life, we realize soon that things are not okay. Cait is a strong woman deeply in love with and committed to her husband, which is why, when things start getting strange, she sticks by him rather than running away with her hands in the air. Here is a woman w ...more
Dark forces are at work seeking to tear Cait and Trevor apart. Can Trevor's lot as a pawn in a game forged by the Otherworld be transformed? His ancestors and siblings failed to avoid the consequences of the hereditary curse. A determined warrior, Cait refuses to accept defeat, refuses to let Trevor fall prey to those same dark forces. Aided by her witch friends, Cait merges herself with Trevor's family history, a past fraught with demons and ancient goddesses. She will fight and love is the key ...more
I keep referring to this book in my head as a good, old-fashioned ghost story. But it's more than that. Madness and curses and critters who shouldn't see the light of day all combine to build a world that is slowly constricting on Caitlin as she watches her husband be consumed by something otherworldly. The hardest part for her is that while she can see that something's happening, she doesn't have the power to stop it.

Wait. That's not quite right either. She has the power, she just doesn't reali
Juli D. Revezzo's "The Artist's Inheritance" is a thriller that will appeal to fans of paranormal fiction. The author has developed an exciting tale that stretches backward into several generations of a family that appears to be cursed. Caitlin and Trevor are the current owners of the home where Trevor's twin died. As Caitlin tries to unravel the mystery of events surrounding his death, she experiences bizarre visions while her husband Trevor is strangely obsessed with a chair he is creating. It ...more

A couple’s love is put to the test by dark forces trying to tear them apart. Trevor seems helpless to meet his destiny of a hereditary curse, his art creations becoming an outpouring of consuming madness. Frightened by what is happening to her husband, Cait fights in any way she can, even finding she has ability to struggle against the demons on their own magical playing field. Her witch friends help her unlock powers she never imagined. I really enjoyed growing with Cait as she learns about her ...more

The Artist's Inheritance had a wonderfully creepy undertone to it, sort of like the movie, Rosemary's Baby. Caitlin's husband Trevor, an artist, is increasingly absorbed with his latest work...a rather devilish chair. Caitlin discovers she's sensitive to the supernatural, and goes on a quest to unravel the mystery behind what is possessing Trevor, before it's too late. The story has ghosts and demons, plus witches who are on the side of good. I liked the way Caitlin wouldn't give up on her husba ...more

The Artist's Inheritance is a well written supernatural thriller. While reading this book, I was reminded of the fantastic movie of the week flicks that came out in the 1970s - Harvest Home, Crowhaven Farm - I really miss those psychological, paranormal thrillers! This book delivers and reads like a movie. The heroine, Caitlin, unravels a mystery surrounding a Civil War fort, a creepy haunted chair, and a long line of suicides that just might claim her husband if she's unable to save him.
Settling into a new home, Caitlin notices changes coming over her husband. When nightmares deepen and ghosts begin lurking–Caitlin knows something’s not right, and not just her newfound precognitive abilities. It’s the damned chair her husband’s carving, she’s sure. Could it be just what it seems: a mundane piece of furniture? If so, why is it attracting dark forces–the forces she suspects drove Trevor’s siblings to insanity and suicide?

Armed with a handful of allies–a coven of helpful witches–s
Anyone who knows me knows how much I enjoy a good ghost story, especially ones where objects are haunted or of possession so when the author of The Artist’s Inheritance reached out for a review, I was quickly intrigued by the synopsis. But my interest and excitement dimmed and more often than not, frustration took its place.

I did enjoy the suspenseful scenes which were built-up well and I like the premise behind the plot. The third half of the ending was when the book started getting far better

If I had to define this novel in one word: SPOOKY. The dream sequences within the story are particularly effective at setting the mood. I'm a horror film/book aficionado, so the story did not leave me overly disturbed. However, I noticed my jumpiness levels increased as the story progressed. In my mind, that's the mark of a successful storyteller.

The Artist's Inheritance is a contemporary supernatural suspense novel with a strong romantic subplot. The story is set in Gulf Breeze, Florida, near

What fun to read ! This tale comes to life as Cait struggles to save her marriage, her husband and her sanity. Sprinkled throughout with past-life Civil War battles, ghosts, goddesses, witchy friends, evil-doers and a family curse, the story is fast-paced and exciting all around. I read it in one sitting because I simply could not put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal stories.

Hang on a second, rubbing my arms to ease the chill I just got from reading this book!

Okay, I'm good now. So is the book worth the read? YES! Revezzo takes readers on a compelling ride that really keeps readers on the edge of their seats.

When married couple Caitlin and Trevor move into their new home, life changes for this happy couple. Trevor's twin brother died in the very home that Caitlin and Trevor move to, and Caitlin starts trying to discover what happened. While she does, Trevor becomes
**I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**
Wow! This book is full of some pretty scary situations. I love the paranormal aspect of it. The story line is a well thought out sequence of haunting events. The 'chair' is an object of desire that causes some great conflicts. I like how descriptive the author gets. The story itself is written well. The characters are a great mix. An all around great read.

The writing's not bad, but the characters just weren't very interesting to me. I think this would have worked better as a short horror story rather than a novel (and the first in a series, at that).
