5++ stars for Towers of the Hungry Ghosts by Lee Kaiser #womensfiction #suspense #bookreview
Title: Towers of the Hungry Ghosts
Author: Lee Kaiser
Genre: Suspense, Women’s Fiction
Mythical Dacian wolves, hungry ghosts and Dracula's ruined fortress next door is hardly a winning formula for a piece of real estate. Inheriting a castle, especially a former insane asylum, would blow anyone's mind, but its reclusive new owner, Paula, doesn't want her mind changed, let alone blown. The naive woman soon finds herself embracing the ominous incidents inside the abandoned fortress as secret messages from her ex-lover—a mad artist missing and declared dead. Whether it's the painter, spirits, or criminals causing the chaos, Paula's friends fear she won't survive long enough to find out.
I fell into this book on a whim. This is a new author for this company and paranormal. Feel like I won the lotto! A story that is so well written, you can't stop reading. The story is so exciting that you want to know what will happen next.
The story offers so many hot concepts that I couldn't figure out which was better. There are wolves, are their ghosts. Is someone faking their death? Is there a serial killer? Is someone after money? At times the book is more than one book. You have a great story with Paula and the journal she reads. For fans of horror, the journal will be what really gets you. If you have ever enjoyed Saw, then you have to read this.
The ending blew me away. I have never read a book that is so original and fun to read. The story has more twists and turns to keep you caught up. Mind blowing.
This book is definitely an award winner. I think this is one of the best reads for originality and writing quality. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. If you want a paranormal suspense to keep you up at night, then this book is for you.
My Rating: 5++ stars
