"The story was fantastical to the point of being absurd . . ." a line from page 139 of House of Shadows

That line from the book really is descriptive of the entire book, more or less. There's a classic Gothic setup -- young woman comes to mysterious, creepy, isolated mansion with a rather stereotypical cast. Settings like that take me back to my youth watching Dark Shadows and reading the paperback novels based on the series.

In this case, a young woman whose family faces financial ruin agrees to marry a gaunt, pale, mysterious man who is willing to pay off the family's financial obligations. His home is a massive mansion in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by ominous woods.

As the book goes along, eventually the horror is not subtle. Annoyingly, the book ends with a teaser for the next book in the series. I really don't think I'll bother. I did sail right through this one, and rather enjoyed it, but I can't take this kind of stuff too seriously. Some of it was just unbelievable even if you took out the supernatural element.

It was a good story; I had the killer pegged pretty early on though but she does try to throw in some twists to throw you off the trail. For me this was a little slow, but once it got good it was really good. I would recommend.

This story had a different feel to it in comparison to Ms. Coates' other books. I think it's because it's more catered for the younger readers. Although, it still held the mystery and thriller that she is famous for. The plot blends between the Frankenstein book, the Jeepers Creeper movie, and the Goonies movie.
