House of Shadows

House of Shadows - Iris Gower I love a good creepy read, listening to a creepy read is even better. House of Shadows certainly had elements of both. Yes, it was very predictable but the spooky factor was still there. It is one of those books that is not out and out blood and gore but has those subtle undertones of creepiness.

I loved the mysterious old woman whom Riana befriends. She was the highlight of the book for me. Her comings and goings, her desire to have her husband's name cleared of horrible charges all made her quite interesting. Riana was a little too over the top for my liking. She certainly had no problems speaking her mind. I love the ghost hunting weekends and the quirky people that showed up in the hopes of running into one.

The story was a bit complicated at times and didn't always flow smoothly, at least in my opinion. The narrator did a grand job of bringing it to life. Not the best ghostly mystery that I have read but certainly one that is worth a listen.
