I can not say enough wonderful things about the writing and Imagination of Jennifer Gordan. I do not want to go into deep, as I am afraid to give away any spoilers and let me tell you, You may think your ready, but you’re not. At least I wasn't.


I dove in and couldn’t t wait to see what would happen next; I love Isabelle and Francis. The hotel, of course, is haunting and creepy. So many times, I had the chills. And that doesn’t happen that often to me. As much as this is fiction, you can’t help

After finishing From Daylight To Madness I couldn't wait for this book - for Francis' book - and it's been worth the wait!

I wasn't prepared for what I read.
I wasn't prepared for Francis.
I thought of him as a strong supporting character as Isabella in the first book.
But here we get to know him better and he was a more damaged and broken person as I thought.
After devouring page after page I've been asking myself, what was true? What happened and what not. I wasn't sure what to believe anymore.

Unbelievably Amazing!

WOW! The mystery, suspense and spin tingling revelations had me utterly hooked on this story. There is so much being slowly revealed that I have been in a complete state of shock since finishing the book. It’s darkness and eeriness had my pulse racing with anticipation of what would happen next. I think I have bitten off all of my nails as the suspense was killing me.

The vivid imagery that every word evoked in this amazing story blew me away. It’s brilliantly written with h

Return to Dagger Island after the shocking finale of the first part of this two-part series, From Daylight to Madness, this time in the shattered mind of Francis, the enigmatic priest who became Isabelle's companion at The Hotel. Gordon's masterful gothic prose creates vivid imagery, delicately painting the world where Francis finds himself a prisoner--whether of his own mind, memory, or the lies he's been fed his entire life. This will hold you in its thrall until the thunderous ending. ...more

Originally reviewed here, for Reedsy Discovery: https://reedsy.com/discovery/book/whe...

A troubled priest mourns a loss and uncovers the ghastly truth about his traumatic past in the second installment of "The Hotel" series.

Sometimes, the mind is the most terrifying place of all--especially when we keep secrets from ourselves. Sussing out the truth from the lies, the facts from the fiction, is the predicament at the heart of Jennifer Anne Gordon's second novel in the historical Gothic horror "Th

I love reading gothic horror novels. After reading "From Daylight to Madness" first book in the Hotel series I was much excited to read its sequel.

"When the Sleeping Dead Still Talk" by Jennifer Anne Gordon will take readers to a totally different world. Story starts with Francis in his hotel room on the second floor. In his childhood, he used to believe in God. But now, he knew that God is not listening but he knew that something is listening. He found the answer he was looking for when he saw

Gordon crafts a solid piece of gothic horror in this atmospheric finale of The Hotel, a two-part series.

Francis Coyle, the enigmatic priest, leaves for his childhood home in Dorchester Neck after losing Isabelle to an eerie accident on the Dagger Island, but coping with her death becomes too much, and Francis finds himself in the Hotel under the care of Dr. Hughes.

Readers who fell in love with the enigmatic, troubled Francis in the first book will be devastated to know he is not the man they t

I am beyond and utterly shocked by this revelation of this amazing book in The Hotel Series! 😳 This takes off from book 1, in case you have not read it, I highly recommend it because the impact of reading this will hit you hard 🥺

I was not expecting such a deeply impacted storyline of Francis Coyle..ok maybe a little bit but with so much trauma in his past to the present, I'd never expected such darkness in the heart of this broken soul! I was not fully prepared for this! 😭

Francis holds a deep de

Essential piece of literature. Words cannot express the grandeur of this book. Full, flawed and fantastic characters that you hate but love at the same time. Atmosphere and scares that makes your skin crawl. Mystery and surprises weaved throughout. While gothic horror is known to be slow burn, there is not a dull moment. Don't try to read this book if you havnt read From Daylight to Madness which is equally a masterpiece. ...more

Loved the hauntingly beautiful and sad continuation to From Daylight to Madness. Father Francis is not who he seems to be or who he thinks he truly is. Has he chosen to forget the past or have the ones around him taken his past from him? In this finale of The Hotel series, our minds are played with into thinking what is real and what are the memories that possibly have been planted to hide the horrific truth of the monsters lurking in The Hotel.
