Michaelbrent Collings, The House That Death Built review
Written by Paula Limbaugh
“This is what the house looks like.
This is the house where death has come to call.”
Holy Crap, Michaelbrent Collings has another winner! The House That Death Built has just become my new favorite book by Collings. A stellar creepy, over the top, read that I just had to finish in one day… I wanted to know what would happen next!!
The story opens simply enough we are given a detailed tour of a home. A beautiful home with a lovely family dwelling within. Little do they know that their world is about to be shattered.
Rob Johnson is a has-been, a once successful thief that had the world by its balls is now living in near poverty. If it wasn’t for that one fateful night when all his scheming went awry he would’ve had it made, but life has a way of pulling the rug out from under your feet. Rob works as a waiter in an upscale restaurant, it’s here that he finds his next target. When a drunken patron lets slip he is about to cash in on a huge payday, Rob just knows this is the job that will bring him back on top.
Rob and his cohorts decide to hit the house that night, that is their first mistake. The luxurious home is nothing but a façade. Unbeknownst to them they have just entered through the gates of Hell. When that first inkling of unease hit Rob he could have turned back, but that was his second mistake. Too soon the thieves realize that they are stuck in a game with their lives at stake.
Nothing is as it seems. With so many plot twists and turns, you’ll never guess the outcome until the very end. This is a tightly written story full of suspense and horror! I highly recommend picking up this book, you can grab your copy HERE!
