Reverie by S.C. Alban is a short paranormal tale. Tom and Caroline Henderson have come from New York, moving into a house the likes of which they always dreamed of owning. Reverie is a small town and their new home, The Williams House, is a historic building, one of the landmarks of the town. They want to restore it to how it should be, but as soon as they begin work, strange things start happening, gradually tearing their sanity into shreds. Tom and Caroline try to find out who, perhaps, what is behind it all and slowly realise that they should have left the past firmly where it was.

Reverie by S.C. Alban is a neat little story, jam-packed with action. It was one of those WOW factor books, short but concise. I read this through in one sitting, as it captured my attention on page one and didn’t let go until the very end – a very surprising end, I must say! The author has got the art of descriptive writing down to a tee, a real way with words that draws you in and makes you feel as though you are living the story. The characters were exceptionally well developed in such a short space, making me feel that I knew them personally and could identify with what they were going through. For anyone who loves horror stories and is a fan of the unexpected, I thoroughly recommend this book to while away a few hours. You won’t want to put it down.
