Only gave it 4 stars as would have liked it to be longer! I'm a stickler for a good back story and I would have enjoyed reading more :)
As I read through the novel, I had a vague sense that this book may have started out as fanfic based on the US TV series "Supernatural". Whilst this impression may not be entirely accurate, certainly the two brothers who are the central characters seem to be based more than a little on SPN's Sam and Dean (albeit with a somewhat different backstory), and to be honest, seeing as I very much enjoy "Supernatural" I don't regard this as a bad thing. It also gives a reasonably good measure of whether the book is for you - if you like "Supernatural," you will almost certainly enjoy this book. It has very much that kind of feeling and vibe to it.
It is admittedly, not really a book in which a great deal *happens*. It is more of an exercise in character, mood and tone, than a particularly plot-heavy book. But this is also, in my opinion, not a bad thing. It's fascinating to learn the stories of Gabe, Joe, Emily and Rick, not to mention Matt and Luke, the two brothers - to find out who they are, what has happened to them in the past to bring them to this strange house, what motivates them, their loves and their fears, how they react to being in this house.
Personally, I found this to be a truly engrossing and excellent read. I would very strongly recommend trying it out. If you enjoy it, Madeleine has another book coming out in 2014 - I'll certainly be buying that!
