Book Review Of “House Of Furies” (Book One)By Madeleine Roux @harperteen @Authorroux @WunderElena @WunderTanya

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?

Thank you to the lovely folks at Wunderkind PR and Harper Teen for gifting me this series in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I rate this book at 3.5 out of 5 Stars.

First and foremost, the cover is stunning. My son was a big fan of Roux’s Asylum series, So when I was approached about reviewing these, it was really a no brainer. My son has great taste in YA books.

I have discovered a love for Horror books, whether it be Adult of YA, and I’d say HOUSE OF FURIES found a good balance, not too light, and not too heavy. I appreciated the pace of this book too, and really like how all the other residents of Cold Thistle House , while nice to Louisa, you knew that they harbored dark secrets.

This was such an interesting prose, and I really loved the aspect of, If you come to visit, you will be handed judgement for all your sins, doesn’t that just sound terrifying? I loved the dark world building, the depth, and richness to the characters, and how everything just flowed extremely well, I felt like I flew through this book. Thankfully I had the whole set, so I could really do a good binge read!
