Title: The house on Blackstone Moor
Author: Carole Gill
Pages: 138 on my e-reader
Catagory: historical fiction, fantasy
This is a tale of vampirism, madness, obsession and devil worship as Rose Baines, only survivor of her family’s carnage, tells her story. Fragile, damaged by the tragedy, fate sends her to a desolate house on the haunted moors where demons dwell. The house and the moors have hideous secrets, yet there is love too; deep, abiding, eternal, but it comes with a price, her soul.

The view of a book addict:
This book is an amazing read, it combines two of my favourite things, Victorian England and Vampires. Bet there are not only vampires, there is more evil in this book. The first chapter really sucked me into the story and I just couldn’t wait to know what would happen to Rose and her life.
The book combines the life in Victorian England with a supernatural story. It’s great to read how people thought about vampires and demons in Victorian England. Of course we still think about them in much the same way but didn’t we change our opinion about vampires? This book really makes you think about how evil vampires really are. An amazing book that makes you think about it even after you finished it.
The verdict of a book addict:
This is a book for people that like me love the paranormal seeing combined with a good historical story. I loved to read how this two elements were combined, they worked so well together. This is by far one om my favourite books this year.
