Pardon me while I fangirl a bit, but I just adore this author’s work!
As I work my way through Ania’s titles, I find that I just can’t get enough! I love her writing style and of course, her stories are just bone-chilling. I finished this one last night and I have the worst book hangover today. Naturally, I need to talk about it so while strictly speaking, this isn’t exactly an old title, it’s still a throwback worthy of discussion.
I Call Upon Thee (Release Date: August 7, 2017)
A terrifying e-novella from the bestselling author of The Devil Crept In, Brother, and Within These Walls.
Maggie Olsen had a pretty ordinary childhood—swimming and sleepovers, movie nights and dad jokes. And then there were the other things…the darker things…the shadow that followed her home from the cemetery and settled into the corners of her home, refusing to let her grow up in peace.
Now, after three years away from the place she’s convinced she inadvertently haunted, and after yet another family tragedy strikes, Maggie is forced to return to the sweltering heat of a Savannah summer to come to terms with her past. All along, she’s been telling herself, it was just in your head, and she nearly convinces herself that she’d imagined it all. But the moment Maggie steps into the foyer of her family home, she knows. The darkness is still here. And it’s been waiting for Maggie’s return…
Add to Goodreads
This author has the most amazing ability! She skillfully writes novellas that feel like full-length novels. It’s uncanny really. Her stories are rich with detail, have fully fleshed out characters and possess meaty plots that you would never expect in a novella. This book is no exception and as usual with her books, I was captivated instantly.
I Call Upon Thee is super creepy my friends. Definitely not your average ghost story. I don’t want to divulge too many details because it would spoil it for you all, but in addition to the superbly crafted horror story, there is also the tale of a deeply dysfunctional family besieged by tragedy, which adds despair and evokes a ton of feeling from the reader.
I loved this story and when I read the afterword by Ania, the terror was elevated to a whole new level. You will have to read it yourself to find out why. I would also like to add that even though this screams paranormal horror, readers of other genres may also enjoy it if they step out of their comfort zones.
This is a strong A+ for me and I’d love to hear from fans or anyone who has read this tiny powerhouse!
You can get it for a steal on Amazon! Just $1.95 for Kindle.
Happy Friday Eve guys!
