REVIEW: The Curse of Malenfer Manor by Iain McChesney

The Curse of Malenfer Manor

Genre: Mystery
Release Date: September 1, 2013
Publisher: Wayzgoose Press

Those in line to the Malenfer estate are succumbing to terrible ends - but is it a supernatural legacy at work, or something entirely more human and evil?

Young Irish mercenary Dermot Ward headed to Paris at the close of World War I, where he drinks to forget his experiences, especially the death of his comrade, Arthur Malenfer. But Arthur has not forgotten Dermot. Dead but not departed, Arthur has unfinished business and needs the help of the living.

Upon his arrival at Malenfer Manor, Dermot finds himself embroiled in a mystery of murder, succession, and ambition. Dermot falls in love with the youngest Malenfer, the beautiful fey Simonne, but in his way are Simonne’s mismatched fiancé, her own connections to the spirit world, Dermot’s overwhelming guilt over the circumstances of Arthur’s death… and the curse.

I was given an Ecopy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book was so amazing… There is everything in this one! Action/adventure, ghosts, historical neatness, and awesome characters!! This is not my typical genre, but I took a chance and decided that what could it hurt… I am so glad I took the leap because this book was sweet!!! From page one I was hooked… Read the entire book in just over 4 hours straight through the night!! The characters are so real and believeable and very well defined that you could know them in real life and not even think twice. I would recommend this to anyone that loves a good spooky read with unexpected turns throughout!!

I give this book 4 out of 5 shields!
