In “House Beneath the Bridge” Iain Rob Wright has taken a different road rather than the one usually traveled. Iain has a unique writing style, and if you are a fan of his work you can pick that out almost immediately. While still maintaining that skillful style he went and took us in a whole new direction this time and it was ma

An accident sends seven people into another realm. A dominion where things are not always as they seem and demons lurk in the shadows waiting to snatch their souls.
If you enjoy suspense and drama with a little dash of horror on the side, you will want to dive into this read and follow Tom, Mia, Father Cottonwood, and the others on their quest to get back to the real world.
Iain Rob Wright stories pull the reader in the pages to entice their imagination. As the story unfolds, builds, and develops

There were some really great moments in this book and I felt the premise could have set it up to be so much scarier than it ended up being.

By the end, I was just getting tired of the cheesy, cliche one-liners characters kept dishing out, I was constantly rolling my eyes and waiting for the book to end. I think more character development would’ve been helpful as well -it was hard for me to care about what happened with anyone.

It was a unique idea and it had strands of creepiness, but ultimately

It started out strong, and the very end (the last page or so) tugged at my heartstrings, but the bulk of the last half just seemed to drag on.

Full disclosure, I was provided with a copy of this book by the author, however, have voluntarily chosen to write a review. All opinions are my own.

What lies beneath

The House Beneath the Bridge is the newest full-length novel by horror author Iain Rob Wright and is a bit of a departure from his other books. While still very much in the horror genre, Wright has opted to craft a story that is not currently related to any of his previous offerings or set in any of his established worlds. The story

Been a big fan of Iain's since I read 'Final Winter' a few years ago and have read most, if not all, of his work since.
This yet another quirky yet thoroughly enjoyable twisted horror story, I enjoyed this so much I finished it in two sittings, it would have been one but life got in the way😒

Thoroughly enjoyable and can't wait for his next novel.

Good, enjoyable read.

I liked the idea of this book, it's almost fantasy like... in a horror, adventure and ghoulish kind of way. Witches and warlocks, heaven and hell, a bit of everything really... it's almost endearing. It starts with a bang, and ends up in a life or death situation... who or what would you choose?

I've read other books by this author that I really liked but House Beneath the Bridge just wasn't for me. It was well written and others might enjoy it -- but for me, it was just too graphic.

For those who want to know: This one is an 18+ read. Everything about it is graphic: language, violence, gore and necrophilia.

Should be made into a movie

Wow! That was a fun read. It was such a unique story and that is key to a great tale. I loved the story so much, I gave a synopsis to my non-reading husband at the halfway point and he couldn’t wait for me to finish so I could tell him what happened next. If you want a consistent author who tells amazing tales (and has recurring minor/major characters that show up in his other novels) then you need to read Iain’s books. Can’t wait for the next one.

Its ok

Its like Tim buttons sleepy hollow meets Clive Barker's hell raiser. Def. More on the comedy side of things. It was an okay read but I would not recommend to someone into horror unless I knew their exact type of horror. I prefer something a little more serious. Very British.

I've read quite a few books by this author but this is the first time I've not been able to leave a positive review. For anyone who isn't familiar with his work and didn't enjoy this book I highly recommend checking out one of his many other books. Until now I have really enjoyed reading other books by this very talented writer.

Alright until the ending

I enjoyed the book until I got to the ending. It felt rushed. The gore felt pointless and like it was just there to make up for the lack of gore in the rest of the book. The dialogue was cheesy. The actions of the characters didn't make sense.

Very long book that took a long time to read! I read this on my Kindle, so I'm not sure how many pages are in this book.......... but it took me a long time to read it! Very involved story, with great characters in such a simple setting! Loved it! Please add this to your to read list!

after a car crash all the people involved wake up in the riverbed and look there is a house in the distance; in the riverbed?

but there is also bones and what about the blind monk?

are they there for a reason and what about the curse on the village?

What an ending....

Who would have expected a love story wrapped in a horror novel?? Forgiveness, and soul searching was amazingly played out while the horror plot stayed true. Meticulously written..

Killer start...but the ending kinda fizzled for me

Things ju st kept getting more predictable and campy as I w3nt along. But I just admit the first half or so really sucked me in. EASY READ FOR A RAINY AFTERNOON

I really wasn't that much of a fun until towards the end. The payoff is pretty much worth it. It appeases my appetite for the distasteful but also gave me.lota of feels that almost had me in tears. SOOOOO, if you're into religious sci/fy, this is totes for you!!

Not what I expected.

They story was well thought out and well written. There was horror, or maybe more of a "supernatural" vibe. It was a nice mix of unpleasantness and redemption. I ended with the feeling that my time had been well spent.

Wright delivers once again!

I'm a big fan of Ian Rob Wright and I have yet to read one of his books that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. The House Beneath the Bridge is no exceptionally.
If you're a fan of good horror make sure that you read this won't be disappointed

Somewhat confusing but an ok read. An alternative place awaits some people involved in a car crash ending with the good versus bad, love conquers all type ending. Could have done without the perverted son and his sexual preferences, a bit
too far for my taste.
