Review: The House of Little Bones by Beverley Lee

The House of Little Bones
by Beverley Lee

A big shout out and thank you to my friend, Beverley Lee, for gifting me this advanced copy! Squee!!

Publish Date: September 21, 2021
Kindle Edition
Genre: Horror

He thought he was untouchable.

David Lansdown, esteemed British horror writer and supernatural sceptic, is used to basking in the glow of the press… Until a hastily snapped photo hits the headlines and makes his affair with his publisher’s son public.  When David finds himself at Bone Hollow, a house with a glass wall overlooking a wild and desolate moor, his only concern is writing his next best seller to bury his misdeeds in the past. But something stirs beneath the earth. Something bound to the land. Something determined to take everything from him. Luca Fox-Waite is still in love with the man who cast him aside, but his own childhood demons lurk in his shadow. As he discovers more about Bone Hollow’s history, he finds himself ensnared in its story—a story steeped in time and tragedy. 

Because curses lie in bones, and they do not die.

The House of Little Bones is a tale of avarice, adoration, and of how the sins of the past cling to the living as well as the dead.

My Review:

OMFG, Bev-er-LEY! Why are you so damn talented.  Ok y'all.  It's always a little nerve racking when you read a book by an author you consider a friend. But then you read the opening and remember your friend is a freakin' genius!  Um a queer horror novella surrounding a curse? GIMME ALL THEM BONES!

"It was very quiet in the aftermath of the avian suicide.  Through the gore-streaked glass, it began to rain."

Did you feel that?  The entire read felt suspenseful, hair raising and suspenseful.  I got to one chapter and was all, "oh.. oh.... OH!!!!!".... but THEN ☝... 😉.  BUY THIS BOOK. I adore curse stories and this is a fantastic one.  When will people learn not to piss of a woman anyways? Psh. 🙄 I also absolutely fell in love with Luca.  He's my favorite character... well, maybe tied to one lovely, scary fucking lady. 😉  David is David and I'm pretty much in the middle of where I stand with this dude and that's all I gotta say about that!

Haha - y'all, seriously, this is an AMAZING story.  If you haven't read Lee yet, go stalk her book list and put each and every one on your TBR.  Want grief horror? Vampire trilogy? She's got you covered.  And you'll want to pre-order this one.  I couldn't put it down once I started, especially when I noticed the page count.  Lee delivers and she delivers hard.  And I loved learning that very last part. ❤ As always, all the stars.

Oh yeah, lesson learned here: always check your food before you take a bite.  Can't believe you did that to me, Bev! 😒
