Mary Sangiovanni has a way of making you care about the most despicable characters. This book is NOT for the faint of heart or easily triggered, as with most horror novels. Sangiovanni holds nothing back in the telling of the horrors of this small Pennsylvania town.
“Some doors should never be opened . . .
In the rural town of Zarepath, deep in the woods on the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, stands the Door. No one knows where it came from, and no one knows where it leads. For generations, folks have come to the Door seeking solace or forgiveness. They deliver a handwritten letter asking for some emotional burden to be lifted, sealed with a mixture of wax and their own blood, and slide it beneath the Door. Three days later, their wish is answered for better or worse.
Kari is a single mother, grieving over the suicide of her teenage daughter. She made a terrible mistake, asking the powers beyond the Door to erase the memories of her lost child. And when she opened the Door to retrieve her letter, she unleashed every sin, secret, and spirit ever trapped on the other side.
Now, it falls to occultist Kathy Ryan to seal the door before Zarepath becomes hell on earth . . .”
I am not a speed reader but finished this book in record time. There is not a single dull moment in this novel and begs one to ask the question… What is worse: the painful consequence of real life or the risk of getting exactly what you asked for?
I gave this book 5 stars for delivering everything the first book of a paranormal series should. Thank you, Mary Sangiovanni, for trusting me with a free advanced reviewers copy of Behind the Door. I will still purchase this book in paperback because it was THAT good.
Behind the Door is available on preorder at Amazon. It will be released for purchase on August 28th, 2018.
