Enjoyable supernatural yarn set in Second World War Britain. The hero loses a leg but still seems to manage better then many on two. The main thing that jarred with me were his parents who were relentlessly cruel and did not appear to have one redeeming good feature between them. I found this unrealistic. That said still an ok read.

A good read but not as frightening as I thought it would be, but well written, I did enjoy this on the whole.

I really enjoyed this book, you can't beat a good old fashioned ghost story. Sad in places and creepy in others. I would recommend this book xxx

I found this book extremely gripping, could not put my iPad down. Very easy to read and sinister without any gore and blood. Well worth a read.

This is the first time I have read this author's work but as an eager fan of ghostly tales, I was really keen on this story. I cared about the central characters and found it difficult to put it to one side. The ending was abrupt however and unsatisfactory. Like some of the other reviewers, I was looking for additional pages and the content seemed very bleak given the trials that Dominic and rose had faced - the possibility that they were in some kind of purgatory in that house was miserable and I was rather relieved that others found the ending ambiguous too. It lost impetus too quickly but would still recommend for the most part.

Great setting, great story. Set between wartime England and long before, this is a great horror novel which will keep you gripped and in some chapters give you chills! I love locally set fictional horror and this will certainly deliver if you do too!!

I was really looking forward to reading this book as I love a good chiller; however, I was a little disappointed by the story.

It took a while to get going; I picked up and put the book down several times before sticking with it. The journal style worked well, but it was occasionally laborious and I often wished there was a bit more pace.

The start and ending seemed to be slightly contradictory and the story seemed to run out of steam at the end.

I think Mr Aycliffe may be a fan of Susan Hill given the name Drablow used in this book and the way the ghosts seemed to be keen to lure other children to their deaths, otherwise it was an original, if not slightly boring read.

Have always enjoyed J. A., but NOT this time. Didn't find it "chilling" in the slightest. Am glad it wasn't a long book after all as I struggled to find anything in it. It just seemed a mish mash of all the usual things that tend to go on in books of this category. It's as if someone else wrote this as it wasn't up to the usual good standard. Won't be in such a rush to purchase his next offering, that's for sure.

The story is full of twists and turns that urge you to read on. Very well written and will definitely be reading another book by Jonathan Aycliffe.

Atmospheric story that made you hold your breath and exhale with it. Wonderfully written with a wide vocabulary. A most enjoyable read.
