The Haunting Season by Michelle Muto

Rating 4.5/5 stars
Publication Date:

Be careful what you let in…

Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Jess, who talks to ghosts, quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects. One is a girl possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who really knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead. 

The study soon turns into something far more sinister when they discover that Siler House and the dark forces within are determined to keep them forever. In order to escape, Jess and the others will have to open themselves up to the true horror of Siler House and channel the very evil that has welcomed them all. 


Note to myself: Don't you ever again read a book about haunted houses after midnight.  The idea of a haunted house and the noises that came from the house above mine kept me awake. The book wasn't that spooky, I am the one who is paranoid. 

I was thinking about the book when I wasn't reading it. Every now and then something new was coming up and made the book more interesting. I was about 60-68% done when the big guns were pulled. After that it was impossible to put the book down. It was the crescendo of the book and I will just say wow.  That was the kind of plot that you want to see in a book like T.H.S.

The end is the kind of ending you will see in a movie with a similar theme.  And I hate that mostly, because it's incomplete and you never know what exactly happened and/or if the evil spirit (or whatever it is) is gone forever or will come haunting people again.

If you are a romance reader you will like it because Gage and Jess have a romantic connection. If you are a paranormal fan you will like it because the book is set in a haunted house. No further explanation is needed.
