Book Review: The Sickness by Dylan J Morgan

I really enjoyed this dark and sinister horror thriller. When James Harris gets news his parents have passed the terror of his childhood floods back. James escaped his parents’ home 17 years ago. Now divorced, single and living alone in London seeing his teenage daughter, Ruth only at weekends, James feels he must return home if not for his parents, then definitely for his younger sister, Laura. Little does he know about the sinister mode of his parents’ deaths and that what he is returning to Will prove ultimately dangerous.

This horror read, as well as giving you the sinister and creepy undertones of expecting the unexpected, allows you to become invested in the relatable characters and their relationship with each other.

Be warned the story takes a macabre and grotesque turn and had me on the edge of my seat with the hair-raising events near the end.

This is not a read for the faint-hearted as it is quite graphic in places and deals with difficult themes like child abuse, but it’s definitely a read for dark horror fans. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

  1. I agree, great cover art! Also, great review, thanks 🙂 I’m new to the horror genre (I figure, if I like scary movies, why not scary books!). I’m looking for a few to add to my must read list, and I’m jotting this title down for sure. I’ve only had one other recommendation so far and it’s one that my friend told me to check out. It’s called “Lucifer’s Son” by Sergey Mavrodi, So far, both look like they are just the kind of books to give me goosebumps! Thanks again!
