“My future is over. My life is over, too. It’s best if you and I break things now so that when it happens there is less sadness.” Her eyes were stone cold and she looked like the mean version of my best friend." The Crimson Key, Book Two

Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies
The Brown House is so much more than a ghost story; it combines an endearing romance, a young woman's coming of age and marvels at the wonders of family and friendship.

Christy Sloat's writing style is simplistically beautiful. It manages to capture the protagonist's inner turmoil and personality as she (Brylee) ventures through a journey of self-discovery and mystery. There is a powerful atmospheric charge throughout the entire novel. It effectively keeps the reader gripped and wanting Brylee to succeed in her many endeavors. The narrative is superbly paced with the build-up tension successfully created, so much so, no doubt the reader will be listening out to creaks in their house and searching for a blanket to read under.

The mysterious events and blossoming relationships evident in the book all come together satisfactorily, with a few significant twists along the way that will keep the reader second guessing. What was particularly successfully created was the ending. Christy Sloat certainly knows how to keep her readers on the edge of their seats and desperately waiting for more. An engaging and thoroughly entertaining read.
The Brown House (The Visitor's Series, Book One)

Synopsis  
Some secrets should never be revealed…
Brylee Branson begrudgingly made the excruciating move with her family from the warm sandy beaches of California to small town living in New Jersey. As if she wasn’t miserable enough, they’ve moved into a creepy old house that everyone in the area claims is haunted. Brylee dismisses the idea of ghosts and hauntings, until she begins to see and hear things that can’t be explained…

Brylee has no choice but to seek the help of new friends to unlock the secrets of this place she now calls home. But some secrets should never be revealed. Can the teens find a way to release the spirits imprisoned within the walls? Or will the curse claim them, too?
