Synopsis

The Haunting of Hill House meets Knives Out in a bid for an inheritance that will leave Helen Vaughan either rich…or dead. Helen Vaughan doesn’t know why she and her mother left their ancestral home at Harrowstone Hall, called Harrow, or why they haven’t spoken to their extended family since. So when her grandfather dies, she’s shocked to learn that he has left everything—the house, the grounds, and the money—to her. The inheritance comes with one condition: she must stay on the grounds of Harrow for one full year, or she’ll be left with nothing. There is more at stake than money. For as long as she can remember, Harrow has haunted Helen’s dreams—and now those dreams have become a waking nightmare. Helen knows that if she is going to survive the year, she needs to uncover the secrets of Harrow. Why is the house built like a labyrinth? What is digging the holes that appear in the woods each night? And why does the house itself seem to be making her sick? With each twisted revelation, Helen questions what she knows about Harrow, her family, and even herself. She no longer wonders if she wants to leave…but if she can.

Review

Now this was the YA Horror I’ve been waiting for! It’s creepy AF and I had the hardest time putting it down.

Helen is forced back to her childhood home of Harrow. It turns out her sadistic grandfather put together an elaborate plot to get her back to the house after he will’s (he literally changed his will and then died) her back to take over as Mistress of the place. Now she’s forced to live there for a year but when things start happening and she starts losing time she becomes determined to uncover its secrets.

With the help of some unlikely friends, including the “Witch” of Harrow, there may be more than secrets to be uncovered. This was the perfect mix of thriller and horror. I was definitely creeped out throughout the story and would definitely recommend it for those who pick up horror during the spooky season! You will not be disappointed.
