Review: House of Furies

Title: House of Furies (House of Furies #1)
Author: Madeleine Roux
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: May 30th, 2017

An all-new gothic horror series from the New York Times bestselling author of Asylum.

After escaping a harsh school where punishment was the lesson of the day, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton is thrilled to find employment as a maid at a boarding house. But soon after her arrival at Coldthistle House, Louisa begins to realize that the house’s mysterious owner, Mr. Morningside, is providing much more than lodging for his guests. Far from a place of rest, the house is a place of judgment, and Mr. Morningside and his unusual staff are meant to execute their own justice on those who are past being saved.

Louisa begins to fear for a young man named Lee who is not like the other guests. He is charismatic and kind, and Louisa knows that it may be up to her to save him from an untimely judgment. But in this house of distortions and lies, how can Louisa be sure whom to trust?

Featuring stunning interior illustrations from artist Iris Compiet, plus photo-collages that bring Coldthistle House to chilling life, House of Furies invites readers to a world where the line between monsters and men is ghostly thin.

This is by far the creepi-st book I have read in 2018...and it''s only April! I definitely had to watch cartoons, after reading a few pages! Then I decided to finish this book all in one weekend, and I was mind-blown. This is a dark, dark book like I was not expecting it at all. I honestly picked this book up because of the cover...I love how they used blue in the cover to convey dark and scary...

Louisa is just trying to make enough money for her next meal but conning individuals on teh street. She is strong and stubborn but rightfully so, I mean she left her boarding school because it wasn't for her. Louisa left to make a better future for herself...But then life happens, and she get bamboozled into going to Coldthistle House and becoming a maid..While working for Coldthistle House,  no one ever works at Coldthistle, you work for the house....Louisa soon learns that Coldthistle is evil, and full of evil people, but what does this have to do with Coldthistle? Well if you darken Coldthistle's door, or summoned to the house you're going to die, and not pretty either. The guests are judged on their past crimes, with their demise carried out by owner of the house Mr. Morningside, and unusual staff.

Louisa soon learns that everyone in the house has a role to play, and she is about to be the lading lady. Once Louisa learns how the house works, she sets out to find a way to save herself, and her new friend Lee Brimble  que the drama....

I truly enjoyed this book, Louisa whine a lot, and is does a lot of things that makes you wonder if she truly wants to leave..I can't wait for the sequel!!4/5
