The lives of three women are entwined with a monk who made a pact with the Devil long before they were born. However, the repercussion of the deal will be felt across generations for years to come. 

Zoey is a sixteen-year teenager who loves photography. She and her father are obsessed with the secrets behind a haunted and the burnt out ruins of Medwyn Mill House.  She and her best friend, Poulton decide to run away from home to explore the ruins. However, things start going wrong and they realize they might not be the only one in the house. Will Zoey and Poulton be able to figure out the dark history of the house before it is too late?

In 1851, seventeen-year-old Roan arrives at the Mill House as an orphan after the sudden passing of her father. She is joined by two other orphans who have their own share of secrets. After the mysterious disappearance of her guardian, Roan discovers a secret that might endanger her life. She must escape the house before it is too late.

In 2583, Hermione is a newlywed and joins her husband in North Wales to build a water mill and a mansion in the area. However, when people start to go missing it causes rumors of unholy rituals being done on the property.  People start to panic which leads to a tragic accident befallen on Hermione. Hermione will need all of her strength and courage to defeat the evil that lurks nearby.

Three women who are lived centuries apart will have to work together to defeat the man who bought them together. Will the women be able to escape his evil plans?

I was torn between loving and just liking this novel. The book was a scary and engrossing read but, some parts moved very slowly. I liked how the author included illustrations and changed the formatting of the text on pages. For example, when someone was knocking on the door, the words "Bang, Bang, Bang" gradually grew larger as the person grew more impatient. I felt like it added to the mood and made me feel like I was witnessing the events unfold with the characters. Overall, I enjoyed reading the novel and I can't wait to read the next book by the author.

About Dawn:

Dawn Kurtagich is an award winning author of creepy, spooky, and psychologically sinister YA, where girls may descend into madness, boys may see monsters in men, and grown-ups may have something to hide.

Her debut novel, THE DEAD HOUSE, was a YALSA Top 10 Pick, An Audie Award Nominee and an Earphone Award Winner. It has been optioned for TV by Lime Productions. She is also the author of THE CREEPER MAN / AND THE TREES CREPT IN, NAIDA and the forthcoming TEETH IN THE MIST, published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and Orion Children's Books. If you enjoy a creeping chill along your spine, mystery and little bit of terror, then you're in the right place!

By the time she was eighteen, she had been to fifteen schools across two continents. The daughter of a British globe-trotter and single mother, she grew up all over the place, but her formative years were spent in Africa—on a mission, in the bush, in the city and in the desert.

She has been lucky enough to see an elephant stampede at close range, a giraffe tongue at very close range, and she once witnessed the stealing of her (and her friends’) underwear by very large, angry baboons. (This will most definitely end up in a book . . . ) While she has quite a few tales to tell about the jumping African baboon spider, she tends to save these for Halloween!

When she was sixteen, she thought she'd be an astronomer and writer at the same time, and did a month-long internship at Cambridge's prestigious Cavendish Laboratories.

Dawn vlogs on her youtube channel and can be found hanging around Twitter and Instagram.
