Book Reviews: The Dead House + Sebastian

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
25 years ago something terrible happened at a school. This is an account of various events that led up to that terrible night. Carly is a disturbed young woman suffering from DID. When she becomes even more uneasy and distraught, her friends try to help her with magic. But her mumbled incoherence and instability grows. Was Carly plagued by supernatural forces or madness? Did her well meaning friends only make things far far worse with their tenderness and enabling? Was Carly seriously disturbed or haunted? This is an excellent, dark, disturbing tale.

Best Lines:
“Hell is empty
And all the devils are here!”

“A psychotic break of the persecutory type.”

“Someone who fears no consequences.”

“Someone has noticed you.”

“He seems too stupid to pull this off.”

Sebastian by Anne Bishop
This 2007 novel is the 1st in the ‘Ephemera’ saga and it is as weak and clichéd as ‘Dreams Made Flesh’ and the ‘Tir Alainn’ trilogy. Various woobies run around the magical lands of Ephemera avoiding the Eater of the World and various thick, ignorant, bigoted, moron baddies. This was terrible.

Best Lines:
“That wall wasn’t built to contain a myth,”

“The lady needs strut clothes.”
