Omg. I picked this book up at the right time. I needed something different and something that was gonna grab my attention. Well horror is kinda different for me and wow did this book suck me in. I started and basically didn’t put my kindle down until I’d finished reading it all.

Alex is a paranormal investigator. He craves his big story and believes the story of The Jackson Mansion is the story he’s been looking for. Along with his team he gets permission to investigate the mansion and nothing

Wow wow wow!! I can't for the life of me express how much I enjoy reading this story. It had all kinds of so horrific and twisted moments that like I say I don't know how to put it in words to describe this haunting horror twisted tale. The think I can say that it was the most spooky read I have had so far in this year.

“Well, that escalated quickly!”

That’s the one phrase that kept popping into my head as I read this book.

For someone like me, growing up in the 80s and 90s, this book is absolute horror nostalgia! Dracula and the Exorcist, this is not. It’s also no Stephen King, with his super-complex characters and social dynamics. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing;it depends on what you want out of your horror.

This is the horror where someone’s walking along, minding his own business, and you blink and

What a unique story. To be Buried but not in the traditional sense.
The gruesome events that happen at the Jackson Mansion are going to give you the all mother of nightmares. The scandles and debauchary acts that made the mansion so famous are both horrific and sensual.
Buried has made it to my number 1 favourite from Sian. The Culling is now number 2.
Sian has really found her niche in the writing world and I just can’t wait for her next book.

If you enjoy horror and unhappy endings, then you will love this book. Sian is very descriptive in her story and it really sets the scene for all the horrors that follow.

Just when you think someone may be making in out of the mansion, she twists the story. I don't usually read horror, but this book was a good 'first horror' book.

Sian's imagination holds no bounds!

I went into this book completely blind. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Buried is a unique story about the horrors that happened at Jackson Mansion. It is said that once you enter, you can never leave.

Alex and his crew set up camp to debunk the horrors that generations of past have talked about. What they don't expect is to witness these depraved acts for themselves.

Buried is a thrilling ride from the first page to the last. There are explicit, heart stopping scenes that left me

I really really really like gory horror novels.

I love books with a rich backstory and twists and turns. Maybe some folklore and ghosts. This book has all of that. I love how the different tragic occurrences at this one haunted location are revealed individually showcasing it's seriously disturbing past. It was hard to put this book down. The story was legitimately scary.

The one complaint I have is with the characters themselves. Some of the group in this book go beyond making a

What a fantastic story. Reminiscent of The Shining, Sian has in this story managed to frighten me (I don’t scare easily) raise goose bumps and flabbergast me. I found myself cheering some of the characters on and being absolutely horrified at the same time. Fantastic. Her earlier work is just a taste of what they will enjoy from Buried. Sian has really hit her stride with this book. Well written as always but so much more developed and if even possible, more sick than what we have had from her. ...more

I went into this book blind, i hadn't read the blurb or even saw the cover before starting it so had no clue what it was based on.
The story is based on a set of Ghost hunters who have access to a well known underground Manor with tales of paranormal history spanning decades which they are trying to disprove but will they be lucky in their mission?

I was asked to read an ARC of this book by the author and give her my honest feedback which i have done privately. I will update my review once the

This is my first story from this arthur and wow what a fantastic book. I had been looking for a scary, creepy story to read and this book had it in spades. From page 1 to the end this book had me hooked from the start. I'm so glad I was given the chance to read this book. This is definitely one that you'll want to one click.

I’m not entirely sure I have the words to do this book the justice it deserves. I’ve been left utterly speechless!
Buried takes us into the heart of the Jackson Mansion. It follows Alex and his team of Paranormal Investigators as they are finally allowed access to film inside the mansion. The aim of Alex and his team is to spend time in the mansion and disprove all of the horrific scandals that this mansion is surrounded by. I think Alex and the team got a lot more than they ever bargained for!

Really WOW this book has to be the best book to date from this author.

This one is creepy and twisted and tells of a paranormal group that go to investigate Jackson Mansion determined to uncover the secrets of it's past with it tales of horrific things that have gone on in there. I not going to go into details of this book you have to read for yourself but you are in for one heck of a ride.

One of the best horror books I ever read!

It's so... scary & graphic & the story stays in your head forever. SO GOOD! It's the perfect book to read right in time for Halloween. :)

Group of reporters are going to explore an underground mansion, that supposed to be haunted. Local legends talk about the ghosts, and the curse of the owners and they are on the emission to film and research an essentially overthrow all the rumors. Well, it didn't go as planned. :)
