About the Book:
When twenty-nine-year-old Scarlett Vantassel comes to the conclusion that her life doesn’t resemble any of the things she actually wanted for herself, she drops out of school and moves back home, attempting to reconnect with the people she left behind. But a shadow falls over her return one early October morning when a sinister house miraculously appears in the center of the city, sparking a media frenzy that attracts attention nationwide.

 Soon after the newspapers label it, "The House that Fell from the Sky," Scarlett’s childhood friend Hannah becomes obsessed with the idea that the house holds the key to discovering whether there really is life after death. Undeterred by her friends' numerous warnings, Hannah becomes increasingly consumed with the desire to enter the house, convinced it would allow her to reconnect with her recently deceased mother.

 Despite a series of escalating events suggesting that the house may be more dangerous than anyone ever thought possible, a privately owned company seizes control of the property and hosts a lottery to lure the city’s residents, promising the winners a large cash reward if they dare to enter the house.

 To Scarlett’s horror, Hannah uses her vast wealth to secure a spot among the winners to gain access to the house. Now, it’s up to Scarlett, her older brother Tommy, and her friend Jackson to face their fears and journey into a place where nothing is ever quite as it seems, and decide if they can help a friend in need, or if Hannah truly is lost.

I had a hard time getting into this book and as I read I found it too long and so boring. I didn't get any scary vibes and frankly found it a little weird, but maybe that's what the author was going for? I felt like I was reading a book for young adults. The characters seems more like caricatures and very childish for their age. As many other reviewers have mentioned this just wasn't my cup of tea. It was supposed to be horror and it felt a little flat to me. I really like the idea for the book but not the execution. On a more positive note I do love the cover.

Thank you NetGalley, Patrick Delaney and Oblivion Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
