The Magic Cottage

An alternative side the bad magic What happened there was horrendous beyond beli. This book was very different from The Fog It was subtle and was a slow read at first but began to pick up after the halfway point The way it was narrated like someone telling you a story was neat The descriptions of the uaint little cottage out in the woods with beautiful scenery was wonderful to escape to As the story progressed I got caught up in how fast it moved It got uite sinister dark and evil I loved it I would definitely recommend to those who like subtle horror and are Herbert fans

A cottage was found in the heart of the forest It was charming maybe a little run. this is not a bad book i don t think this is a particularly good book either easy to read and not particularly painful to get through i read it all through one long rainy night Herbert is a real professional the screws are tightened expertly our two leads are sympathetic realistic although one of them is a wee bit off the mysteries unfold at a good pace creepy supernatural goings on abound some enjoyable twists turns pop up and of course a mysterious possibly threatening figure lurking on the edge of things appearshere is what i did not like1 boring cult action it did not agree with me and i found it be over obvious eye rolling perhaps i just don t like reading about creepy cults i kept hoping that they would be a minor part but oh no it s major2 yep Herbert is a professional but he is not really a master he has a tendency to badly overwrite certain things for example when he writes about Love my stomach starts to cramp and i get a little nauseated really Herbert restrain yourself please or perhaps i am just against Love3 when the horror hits to put it bluntly i was not scared instead i gave birth to sighs many of them sad to say there was a lot horror in the atmosphere itself perhaps i just have a problem with cheap horror thrills especially of the kind that i ve read dozens upon dozens of times previously so uite a bit of fun to be had in the foreboding uality of the cottage in uestion some hairs were definitely raised but when the book tries to get me to jump all i did was yawnhere are three books that deal with darkly enchanted residences in ways that i found to be much accomplished multi leveled and downright shiveryThe House Across the Way by Brian McNaughtonSweetheart Sweetheart by Bernard TaylorLocke and Key Vol 1 Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill
