The House on Hayden Pond by Jessica Monks is a fast-moving horror/thriller. The Boltons have finally found their dream home, but when they move in, it all turns sour. Things start happening, evil nasty things, and there is no letup. Soon the Boltons begin to fear for their lives as their very presence gives the demons that inhabit the house new life. But there may be a ray of light as a family member who is no longer of this world comes to help in the fight to stay alive. Can the Boltons get out of the house with their lives intact?

The House on Hayden Pond by Jessica Monks is a creepy horror story with a thrilling touch of the paranormal. This is a fast story with no letup, a story that starts in high gear and goes at full throttle all the way through. There is a lot going on in a short space of time; the story twists and turns through a rollercoaster ride of terror and horror beyond all imagination. It feels like a true story that was written from a personal point of view of a family that went through the horrors of living in a house inhabited by demons. Jessica Monks has put a lot of work into writing a story that will scare the living daylights out of anyone that reads it; the characters are well developed and likable, people that can easily be identified with. This is a fabulous horror story and I definitely want to read the next book.
