This was one of the anticipated new books introduced by the Epic Reads ARC party last week. When I heard that the story is based on Edgar Allan Poe’s, The Fall of the House of Usher, I immediately added it to my goodreads tbr. The storyline is as follows:
Ushers are cursed, as they can never leave their house that is forever haunted and seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life is dedicated to finding an escape from the house to save herself and her brother. The only chance they have is to destroy the house once and for all.
Why I’m waiting: I love Edgar Allan Poe and gothic stories. The Fall and the House of Usher is one of my favorites and I can never forget that chilly feeling I got from reading the story. Poe’s stories are dark, mysterious, spine tingling, and gory and are the center of influence for many authors including Bethany. So when I heard that she was coming out with another Poe inspired story, I was über excited!
About the author: Bethany Griffin is a high school creative writing teacher and is known for her popular series called the Masque of the Red Death.
