The Lovereading comment:
A chilling horror story that really sets the spine tingling. Four friends unlock the door of the abandoned Fell Scar house. Inside they find a secret room; they read the mildewed books and free the eyeless dolls from a locked box. What they don’t know is exactly what horror have they unleashed…
SynopsisBad Blood by Rhiannon Lassiter
A nail-biting horror story.
A family divided by hate...
A house with a sinister past...
A game started and left unfinished...
When Katherine, Catriona, John and Roley are forced to go on holiday to Fell Sear House, they know things will be grim. But none of them has an inkling of just how hellish it will be.
Inside the sinister house is a game, begun and abandoned years ago. The children don't know the rules, but they soon learn that they are pawns not the players.
In this chilling thriller, winning really is a matter of life or death.
ReviewsI thoroughly enjoyed it (Bad Blood)...She writes superbly and maps modern family with pinpoint accuracy but her real strength lies in creating an atmosphere of weird creepiness within the everyday, this allows her to slowly ratchet the tension to screaming pitch. This book contains moments of real terror. Respect! ...I thought it was superb. Celia Rees
