Check it Out: The Black House

The Black House by Blodwedd Mallory 
Young Adult Dark Fantasy

On a dare from Danny Dufresne, a member of the League of Monster Slayers, Innsmouth Academy students Carter and Wedd decide to investigate a haunting.

Inside the mysterious, burned-out shell called the Black House, Wedd must confront her fears, figure out why an unquiet spirit still haunts the wreckage, and escape the ghost's attempts to recreate the scene of her own demise.

This novella is a story about Blodwedd Mallory’s experiences as an Innsmouth Academy student prior to the events of October 31, 2011, and a prequel to the Unofficial Legends of The Secret World urban fantasy/horror book series.

5 out of 5 fairies

The Black House has one of my favorite opening lines. The theme is haunted houses, and everyone knows ghosts are what makes it all more real. Filled with chills, this is a fun, quick read for anyone who likes a little spooky in their lives. This short story can be enjoyed even if you haven't read the series (I haven't yet, but I'm looking forward to it).

About the Author: Blodwedd Mallory is the Secret World alter ego of Amber McKee, a Utah-based writer, editor, and Jill-of-all-trades.

Over the course of her career, she’s been a newspaper reporter, movie reviewer, bartender, tarot reader, magazine editor, advocacy trainer, instructional designer, service delivery manager, and more.

Now, she realizes what she probably should have been all along was a video game developer. She assuages that pain by creating urban fantasy fiction books based on her in-game experiences of an urban fantasy/horror video game. Go figure.

She lives with her hubby and two rescue pups in a formerly haunted house.
