This is the best dark fiction I have read so far this year.

While I was reading it, I compared it to the Stephen King novel, It, as both books had a very similar theme. I thought that this book was better.

Why? Because it was strictly British with no boomercentric pop culture references; even though these two novels are set in the same time period. Also, we don't delve into the details of the characters lives and learn a lot of personal things that have nothing to do with the story.

The monster is better. I really loved the Beowulf reference during the final battle with Long Lankin.

I am just a sucker for a novel with a moldering old manor house, a Domesday Book family with a curse and an ancient monster out of legend. You just can't get much better than that.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a traditional, creepy ghost story.

Pet Lover's Advisory: SPOILER!
A good dog dies a brave death in this story. The death is not a gratuitous manipulation of the reader's emotions, but integral to the story. Not bloody, gory, disgusting, but he does die......so be warned! ( )

Great debut. Not overly scary, but creepy. ( )

Way too slow paced for my taste. Much of the dialogue is completely unnecessary and irrelevant to the plot. I really, really wanted to like this story because books based on legends are intriguing to me and contain that creepy goodness, but it just didn't do anything for me. :( ( )

Perfect name for the book too because it is long but good though ( )

Said my lord to my lady, as he mounted his horse:/
"Beware of Long Lankin that lives in the moss."/

Said my lord to my lady, as he rode away:/
"Beware of Long Lankin that lives in the hay."/

"Let the doors be all bolted and the windows all pinned,/
And leave not a hole for a mouse to creep in."/

The doors were all bolted and the windows all pinned,/
Except one little window where Long Lankin crept in./

"Where's the lord of this house?" Said Long Lankin,
/"He's away in fair London." said the false nurse to him./
"Where's the heir of this house ?" said Long Lankin.
"He's asleep in his cradle," said the false nurse to him./

"We'll prick him, we'll prick him all over with a pin,/
And that'll make my lady to come down to him.'/

So he pricked him, he pricked him all over with a pin,/
And the nurse held the basin for the blood to flow in./

"The nurse how she slumbers, the nurse how she sleeps./
My little son John how he cries and he weeps."/

"How durst I go down in the dead of the night/
Where there's no fire a-kindled and no candle alight ?"/

"You have three silver mantles as bright as the sun./
Come down, my fair lady, all by light of one."/

My lady came down then, all fearful of harm./
Long Lankin stood ready, she fell in his arm./

Here's blood in the kitchen. Here's blood in the hall./
Here's blood on the stairs where my lady did fall./

"O master, O master, don't lay the blame on me./
'Twas the false nurse and Lankin that killed your lady."/

Long Lankin was hung on a gibbet so high/
And the false nurse was burnt in a fire close by.
