Praise

“A richly horrifying experience…a Gothic manse, honeycombed with secret passages, occult symbolism, and a subterranean river of terror, all there for the right lucky reader to stumble upon in the dead of night.” —New York Times Book Review

“Wonderfully creepy…This magnificently eerie novel…takes us on a skillful journey through fear.” —The Observer

“Great fun…Boyne keeps up a constant barrage of surprises and the pace is terrific.” —The Times (UK)

“A lesson in classic storytelling…Boyne takes us on a highly original, entertaining journey that, like all great ghost stories, saves its most unexpected twist for the very end.” —Sunday Independent

“A perfect, shivery gothic tale.” —Booklist

“Like the writers of Victorian ghost tales to which he pays homage, Boyne is a master at creating an unsettling presence. This House Is Haunted gathers momentum right up to the stunning denouement, and ends with one word that serves as an icy finger down the spine.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Boyne paints a picture that is both gloomy and thrilling, creepy and enticing…The result is a novel, just in time for Halloween, that is fast-paced, unputdownable, lively, and intelligent.” —The Record

“Literate horror fans will take wicked delight in [This House Is Haunted].” —Bookpage

“Boyne applies his dependably fluid writing style to this eerie Victorian ghost story, which offers an unsettling—in a good way—blend of the conventional and the unexpected…Boyne knows the precise moment to shake things up with a sudden, sharp surprise.” —Reading the Past

“Rife with Gothic elements, This House Is Haunted will please fans of Jane Eyre, Ann Radcliffe, and the like. A beautiful call back to the height of Gothic Literature.” —The Readist

“Everything a classic ghost story should be…pure Gothic fun.” —Fourth Street Review

“Fans of Gothic novels will definitely enjoy This House Is Haunted. Its appeal, however, stretches further than to just those who are looking for an entertaining Gothic homage…an alluring work of fiction that encompasses what we most look for in a novel.” —Acid Free Pulp
