Sarah Claymore has decided to take a break for a couple of weeks away at the house on the shoreline she has inherited in Cape May. Nathan has also decided to get away to the house he inherited from his aunt in Cape May. When they meet, Sarah is drawn to the only other person she has encountered along the shoreline after experiencing a rather lucid nightmare but the longer Nathan and Sarah stay at their houses in Cape May the stranger their dreams get and the more sinister their houses seem.
As a horror novel, this had a lot going on and offered all sorts of thrills and scares but what made it hard to read was the strange way it was written. When at the beginning of the book we first read what the houses (which are incidentally the sisters alluded to in the title of the book) say when they are speaking to each other I wasn’t sure if there was an error in the format of the ebook I was reading. Once I realised the underlined passages were the houses speaking to each other, the book began to make a little more sense.
Although I was never quite let in on the secret throughout this first book as to why the houses spoke to each other and for what reason they were made into living entities (I presume that will be discovered later on in the series?) I just wasn’t intrigued enough to really want to read the next on in the series with any urgency.
An entertaining horror available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
