Ashburn House has always seemed to have something wrong with it. There are whispers about the old owner and the ghosts that lurk in these halls. The darkness that shrouds this house is about to enfold a young woman with nowhere else to go in The Haunting of Ashburn House.
Adrienne is in need of a place to stay and finds herself inheriting the old mansion, Ashburn House, which at this point seems like her only lifeline. That is until the darkness falls and she finds herself contending with horrors she never imagined. Messages appear carved into the walls, furniture moves when she is out of the room, and a grave hidden in the woods hints at a terrible secret. Something is hunting Adrienne in her new home and she must unravel a decades-old mystery to save herself before that mystery destroys her.
The darkness lurking in Ashburn House is palpable throughout the book with Adrienne constantly worrying and finding herself fighting against a dark force. She also must try and help others, including her cat escape from the evil lurking in her home. A diary provides readers with some additional insight into the horrors of the home and what is within the shadows, which I felt was a great touch for the book. If you are looking for an eerie read than The Haunting of Ashburn House is perfect for you. You can find out more about Darcy Coates and her work on her website.
