House of Furies by Madeleine Roux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoy Madeleine Roux's books. They do somewhat read like middle grade novels.
This story had a very good concept. I went into this book not reading any synopsis on it. I had no idea what this story was about. But after I read Asylum and really enjoying it, I wanted to give this one a shot while I wait on book too of Asylum series to be released to me by the library.
We start with a girl named, Louisa Ditton, escaping a harsh school where punishment was the lesson of the day. She is met by an elderly woman which she calls the "Crone." The offers a chance for escape, so she takes it. She arrives at the Coldthistle House.
Things are not as they seem in Coldthistle House. Afterwards, Louisa begins to see things and experience things that scare her and all she wants to do is leave. But in the process of trying to steal items to leave the house, she comes across "The Residents" that live in the attic of the house. Louisa is drawn to touch the book they are protecting but the only thing she did not know, if she touched the book, she could not leave Coldthistle House. After she met with the master of the home and soon finds out what touching the book has caused, Louisa is more anxious to leave the home.
There are turns in this book that are very enjoyable. I recommend this book as a light read.
