it was amazing
Read in March, 2011

I'm not sure the book is really a five star novel, but sometimes a novel just resonates with you, and Black House did with me. I was emotionally involved with this book from the very beginning.

Read Talisman first. I don't think this book would be have as effective if you haven't read Talisman.

That said, I actually didn't like Talisman as much as Black House. But it did help me appreciate the main character, Jack Sawyer, that I really cared about him again when his story picks up again in Black House.

One thing I'd appreciated about the book was that alot of horror cliches are generally avoided in this. Usually in a story where a 'terror' comes to a town, it seems like have the townsfolk are stupid, petty, or both. Generally, this was avoided and most of the characters were likeable and therefore the book was more enjoyable as a result.

Highly recommended
