This review is from: The Woman in Black: Angel of Death (Kindle Edition)
I love Susan hill ghost stories , and the woman in black has to be one of the best...so I have been eagerly awaiting this release for months..waiting up at midnight on the 24 th oct for this story to load on my kindle I couldn't wait to get stuck in.. But and it's a big but, what a dissapointment. Having recently read the ghost choir another hammer release this book should have had all those elements and more , but it flopped badly. It started out well , but instead of the insidious creepy feelings the original woman in black caused this read more like an Indiana jones book .. The woman in black herself has been lost in what turns out to be a madcap adventure ride.she is one of the iconic ghosts of the twentieth century, but her 21st century reincarnation is not so much creepy as annoying. . An over the top incarnation. Even the story is a mish mash of ideas.. That by mid book I was flicking through the pages in a desperate search for some magical touch.. It just proves that if you can't get the original author to write the sequel , you should leave it alone. Susan hill must be very disappointed to have one of her most famous characters ruined.
I think two stars is being generous. I will be interested to see what other readers think
