Product Description

Review

'Sokoloff keeps her story enticingly ambiguous, never clarifying until the climax whether the unfolding weirdness might be the result of the investigators' psychic sensitivities or the mischievous handiwork of a human villain'--Publishers Weekly

'[A]spine-tingling story that has every indication of becoming a horror classic' --Romantic Times

'A masterful blend of fascinating fact and chilling fiction... an unsettling and highly entertaining horror/thriller read'--Bookbitch.com

'Alexandra Sokoloff blends fact and fiction into a creepy tale of the paranormal. THE UNSEEN will entertain fans of ghost stories, as well as suspense novels, and could quite likely have believers checking under the bed and turning on a night light'--Las Vegas Review Journal

'Intriguing characters, atmosphere and masterful writing allow the expected eerie elements to fall into the background. The novel will appeal to lovers of traditional horror but who want to read something a bit deeper' --Fear Zone

'Sokoloff has provided a new and interesting twist to the genre, one that will stay with the reader long after the book has been read'--Bookreporter.com

'This foray into the unknown makes for a great, scary story the likes of which rivals those of Stephen King'--Charlotte Examiner

'Sokoloff shines, and deserves kudos for her crisp, direct style, excellent characterization' --Horror World --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

The plot was interesting; based LOOSELY on real parapsychology research. The characters were well developed although not very likable. Based on this book, I will now be ordering other books written by this author.

I enjoyed this book. The pace is steady and there are a few really creepy moments which almost had me sleeping with the light on. Please authors can we have less Mills and Boon characters-stereotypical handsome lead man etc. Apart from that and some rather irritating chick lit stuff like 'She lifted her chin' and met his gaze ....she tucked a strand of hair.....you know what I mean...It was an enjoyable spooky read.

I was invited to read this book - something I'd not usually look at - through a facebook promotion.

I enjoyed many aspects of this book - it was scary, it was very peculiar, the interaction was usually fast paced, the ending wasn't clear.

Some aspects jarred with me, the long legs, the beautiful academics, the fast movement to a great new job. some other aspects really came home to me - the fear the jealousy etc.

This hasn't turned me into a paranormal reader, but happy to try more of the genre.

What a disappointing read! The action only starts about 3/4s of the way through and even then it's nothing original; typical ghostly goings on that you would find in any other cheap horror story. But, what I found most unpleasant about it was the terrible stereotypes about mental health. I could hardly believe my eyes when she writes about the smell of schizophrenia?! What a complete load of nonsense! And, let's face it, books like this is why there's so much fear about mental health issues. I don't want to get on my soap box too much but Alexander Sokoloff really needs to get in the real world! I suggest avoiding this book and reading some decent horror, like James Herbert, instead.

This is a definite must-read if you love ghost fiction and haunted mansions!
It is really slow to get into at first but once you get past that it is amazing. I found it scary and creepy, especially reading in a house on my own, or in bed! It's a classic haunted house/ghost hunter story with bumping and banging in a house with a history of murder and insanity and ghost hunting equiptment going wild.
This is the first book i have read by Alexandra Sokoloff and if her other books are as good as this, i cant wait to read them. I reccomend this book and I hope Alexandra decides to do a follow up!
