Thanks to Netgalley for the Arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book took some time to build up, but when it delivered, it delivered big! I really enjoyed this book and the unique storyline.
Fungi From Yuggoth
A proposed post-graduation blowout for four close university friends results in an unending nightmare for one, feckless Michael Carter, who like the Fool in Tarot, is often second-chosen and first-to-fail. But the stay at Scotland's isolated Hearthstone Cottage targets Mike with terrifyingly realistic nightmares, visions of the dead, sleepwalking, and rampant paranoia, which the others blame on his alcoholism and marijuana.


HEARTHSTONE COTTAGE is a nonstop riveting read and the suspense never sla

I really wanted to like this book, and had high expectations for it, due to other books I've read by the author. It's not a bad book, it just never seemed to jump out at me. Unfortunately. It just seems like standard horror fare. Nothing unique here sadly. Disappointing.

A good horror story, well written and entertaining. I liked the plot, how the tension build and the cast of characters.

Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

Hearthstone Cottage is a good horror story. Nothing good ever happens when friends travel to a remote cottage. Well written and great suspense.

Though I thought it got off to a slow start, I really enjoyed this book. Good ending.
