ARC Review: Shepherd’s Warning by Cailyn Lloyd

I am a sucker for all things haunted house and ghost related. I can never get enough. Unfortunately it is so hard to find a good ghost story that grips my interest but this one absolutely did. It’s a slow burner and we’re introduced to a lot of characters. They’re complex and they’ve been through hell. The family dynamics can be rough to read at times so much so that I cringed reading some of the dialogue but it’s realistic and that’s what I liked about it.

The house is an ancient evil that causes tragedy, injury, and death to anybody involved. So you can only guess what happens with the Mackenzie family moves in. This reminded me a bit of House on Haunted Hill remixed with The Shining. The pacing was a bit disjointed and it could have used a bit less show than tell but I enjoyed this horror tale a lot and I want to see what else this author has in store. 

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are my own.
