    1. Jeffrey Barlough s second novel in his Western Lights series is another wicked marriage of Dickens and Lovecraft However, where in Dark Sleeper the focus was on the Dickensian half of the union, in House, the Lovecraftian half comes to the fore The blurb at the back of my edition says, The nightmare has come home again, and it doesn t end.I was actually surprised at how thoroughly bleak and hopeless the ending was no one escapes the savage vengeance of the revenant who returns to the village of [...]



    2. This is the second in Jeffrey E Barlough s Western Lights novels Its only relationship with the first book is that its set in the same world What an unusual world it is too This is a world in which the ice age never quite ended altering to some extent the course of human history Human history in this case is then further altered by an event referred to as the sundering that seems to have been a cataclysmic event of some kind cutting the locales of our narrative s and alternate North American con [...]


    3. Barlough s style is very different from a lot of books I ve read It s all about outrageous memorable characters There was definitely a story there, but it s almost like you can tell he would rather talk about characters than make up some interesting plot.My wife and I enjoyed it a lot, but we both would have loved there to be some kind of action in the first 3 4ths of the book It kind of sped to an very unexpected ending.


    4. The author could have pushed himself a bit further Instead of blending tracts from Dickensian and Lovecraftian stories which he does just in surface , he should have mashed up the historical eeriness of the best Le Fanu s novels with the dreamy narrative of Sarban s landscapes Whereas relying on Victorian syntax and transposing it into a semi fantastical scenery could have its benefits and result in an interesting setting, it also has its negative effects specially on the scenes where action pre [...]


    5. This second volume in the Western Light s series, again, shows Barlough is a master of characterization As in the first volume, the characters are everything and Barlough does an excellent job of snaring the reader s interest in each and every one of them, both human and animal This novel, as I say, is truly a darker offering, and the ending is certainly not of the happily ever after variety The description of the various points of interest in and about the town of Shilston Upcot and Old Talbots [...]


    6. Quite enjoyable A little heavy on the victorian speak at times, but the mystery is excellent, building up steadily The characters are enjoyable and drawn well, which makes the resolution even effective and despairingly horrifying I applaud the author for evoking true horror without resorting to tropes His alternate history is appealing to this lover of ice age fauna, although there were tantalizingly few glimpses in this volume And I d dearly love of map of the Sundered World, but that s a quib [...]


    7. I liked the first of Barlough s Western Lights series of alt history fantasy mysteries, set in a nineteenth century inflected world with bonus prehistoric mammals, but I didn t love it Accordingly, the sequel s been sitting around TBR for a couple of years now With the second, though, he really hit his stride he s one of the rare authors who can write Victorian style prose without sounding affected The book has a long slow build and a devastating conclusion this is horror that proves you can be [...]


    8. This is a weird book to review I enjoyed it once I got into the writing style, kind a a dense, backhanded victorian thing It s hilariously funny in places Unfortunately, huge portions of the book have nothing whatsoever to do with the plot, which doesn t really get seriously started until than halfway through the book Also, the resolution was way too fast and disappointing and the promised tension and terror never showed up for me Nonetheless, I did very much enjoy the read.


    9. An improvement over the somewhat rambling Dark Sleeper and with a much satisfying ending , this Lovecraftian, Dickensian saga is set in a small town with a shameful secret Subtle supernatural overtones are introduced early on, and grow steadily powerful till the horrific truth is undeniable and terrifying An immensely enjoyable read.
