The Spirits Of Six Minstrel Run by Matthew S Cox ★★★★★

Published: 18th January 2019

Publisher: Division Zero Press

Format: Kindle, Paperback, Audio

Genre : Horror


A move to the small town of Spring Falls, New York is the perfect cure for Mia Gartner’s horrid commute. However, her new home isn’t quite empty.

She adored working in fine art restoration, but a two-hour ride each way got old fast. When her husband found a house for sale at a suspiciously low price, they jumped at it. Mia expected chemical contamination, a fixer-upper, or termites, so when the problem turned out to be persistent rumors of haunting, she set aside her worries. Adam hoped the place would propel his parapsychology hobby into a career.

Upon first sight, the innocuous suburban house filled Mia with dread. Adam had long maintained she had a psychic gift, but if she believed him, that would mean something terrible and dark once happened there.

Soon after their arrival, unexplained events prove the rumors are more than wild stories. A childlike spirit attaches itself to Mia, seeming harmless and so very lonely.

Alas, she fears the ghost may not be as innocent as it seems..

My Review...

This was quite the spooky read!! Probably didn’t help that I was reading  it mainly at bed times but it deffo spooked the hell out of me. Mia’s character was my favourite, strong but sometimes doubting herself and her abilities.. Adam, Mia’s husband is a ghost hunter and Mia herself is a psychic albeit a sensitive one.

They move to a dark and eerie house out in the suburbs, They chose this house in the state it’s in for a reason, Adam wants to further his paranormal hobby into a real career, but Mia isn’t sure and she has the unsettling feeling something awful has happened there.

it soon becomes clear that there are a few spirits at number 6, one, the spirits of a young girl makes Mia realise her true talents and she desperately wants to help her, but Who is the sinister presence within the house and is there a chance that could they be one and the same...

Can they remove one without harming the other? Adam is in paranormal heaven until he realizes his wife may be in huge danger. together they try to solve all the questions hanging over Number Six without getting hurt Or will they be forced to flee this haunted house like so many others...

A few months ago I said I had not found a book that truly scared me.. then I read one and it did give me that eerie feeling but this one made the hairs on my arms stand up and made me question every little noise I heard in bed.. Brilliantly written and incredibly realistic, you can almost put your self in that old house with its large foreboding rooms scared out of your mind.

If you are after a book to scare you and question who is behind you climb the stairs to bed at night, then this is the one for you..
