Library Journal reviewed The Darkness Surrounds Us by Gail Lukasik: “VERDICT: Lukasik blends all the elements needed for a dark suspense novel: a forbidding mansion, ghostly presences, secret passages, a hostile housekeeper, a temperamental employer, and residents unwilling to talk to outsiders. For fans of Rebecca, The Woman in White, and The Death of Mrs. Westaway.”

Library Journal reviewed the audiobook for The Woodkin by Alexander James: “With plenty of nods to horror master Stephen King, this is an audio that fans of the grotesque should relish.”
