2022 Book Review: Owl Manor-The Final Stroke

Owl Manor-The Final Stroke by Zita Harrison

A Horror, Independently Published in 202, 296 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • The downward spiral of our characters felt a bit rushed. I expected sort of a slow descent and instead it was more like a switch was flipped. 
  • None of the characters particularly grabbed my attention. I felt like they were all at arms length, never really connecting with me. It made it difficult to relate to.
  • The ending felt rushed. We had a journey to get here, I wanted to linger with it a little longer. 

What I Did Like:

  • I never read Book 1 or 2. I did like that you don’t NEED to read them. Enough information is given that you can understand all of the story even if this is the first one you read. I will say it made me intrigued enough to want the other stories though! 
  • Gothic creepy vibes. The house has a great old feel with its dangerous past and secrets. This is great for haunted house fans! 
  • The care and research invoked in keeping this period story accurate is evident. From the language to the customs, this one just fits the early 1900s and made for an interesting tale.

Who Should Read This One:

  • Haunted house fans, more in the style of Hill House. Great vibes from this one!
