    1. Julz on said:

      This story was about as good as that badly photo shopped cover. Some parts cool, other parts not so well done. This technically had everything I was looking for: gothic, vamps, dark topics, romance, angst, an absence of big shiny bows (well, actually) It was a good idea but it just wasn't put together effectively, which was a shame for a book with tons of potential. The author worked really hard to shock and pull at the angststrings. Too hard. The sheer volume of OTT wtfery ended up desensitizin [...]

      I truly enjoyed the first half of the book. It told the story of a traumatized young heroine's dark past, her struggle to overcome the horrors she'd experienced, and her eventual arrival at Blackstone - a mysterious manor on the Moors. All in all, a perfect setting for a gothic tale, and a great build up of suspense.The second half of the book was a complete let-down. After the slow, tantilizing build up, I felt like all the dark secrets discovered by the heroine were being thrown at me all at o [...]

      Carole Gill has written a tale of Gothic Horror which will send chills up the spines of the most devoted fan of the genre. The House on Blackstone Moor is a well constructed, fast paced tale that takes the protagonist through the depth of depravity and tragedy into insanity, recovery and apparent salvation, until her salvation turns into another kind of hell. A great tale and a highly recommended read.Tom Cooke

      I don't like to give bad reviews if I can help it. I try to base my reviews more on editing and correct writing format than content, as not everyone likes the same things. However, there is so much wrong with this book that I felt I had to inform the masses. Also, the fact that many others have complained about the author's lack of writing knowledge and the poor editing and NOTHING has been done to correct it really leaves a bad taste in my mouth.The editing in this book is horrible. Errors are [...]

      The House on Blackstone Moor by Carole Gill is a startling tale, filled raw and genuine emotions and numerous twists and turns. The narrative in this book is quite different from most books I have read, allowing the reader to feel all of the emotions and confusion that the main character, Rose Baines, is going through. The book opens with Rose making a brutal discovery that would forever change her life.Left alone in the world after the trauma her father subjected her to, Rose is forced to have [...]

      In a day when vampires and other paranormal characters are seemingly coming out of the woodwork, this epic work takes a bit of vampirism, demons, magic, action and romance, and takes them all into a dark place. Earlier I used the word "epic" and this novel is nothing short. It may not have been as long as Stephen King's, "The Stand"; however, by the time the reader has gone from the abattoir that was the Baines home to the insane asylum to Blackstone Moor and beyond, they will feel that they hav [...]

      I have fond memories of reading Gothic Horror books on vacation at the sea shore: books like "Jane Eyre" and "Wuthering Heights", and those by Phyllis A. Witney, Mary Stewart and Victoria Holt. The first half of this book has all the elements of the best: a young woman without family and a shady past who becomes a governess in a creepy house at the edge of a wasteland, etc.The first half is compelling and well written. The heroine is "plucky" enough and doesn't make you want to beat her to death [...]

      First thoughts when I finished the last page:”Wow, this book didn’t end at all how I thought! I wonder what happens next!” (luckily there is a sequel coming)What I liked about this book: I am a big fan of vampire/horror books! I haven’t read one in a while, so this was quite a change in genre for me from what I have been reading lately!The first few sentences in this book were shocking! Rose came home to find out that her father killed her mother and siblings by slashing their throats. R [...]

      A haunting book written by a voice that's as different as they come. Carole Gill takes the reader to Victorian England with language that's lyrical and faithful to the time period. Written in first person as a narrative from the heroine's point of view, this story represents her testament - or a harrowing account into her motivations, thoughts and actions, triggered from abuse suffered both in childhood and adulthood. It is an utterly romantic book - one of those stories where flowers bloom and [...]

      The House on Blackstone Moor is a fantastic read. It is filled with suspense, there are unexpected plot twists and turns around every corner. I absolutely love the style of this book, the first person POV really makes the story way more interesting and exciting. It is very much in literary fashion, and reminded me in a lot of ways of Susanna Kaysen's "Girl, Interrupted". The author hints at many different possibilities throughout the story, creating twists and turns that truly keep you on the ed [...]

      There was nothing ethereal about the dark movie playing in the recesses of my imagination as I rapidly clicked through the pages on my kindle; the images that were invoked in my mind were substantive, very well-formed and often gruesome. This is truly an outstanding horror tale that provokes deeper thought even as it scares you out of your wits. Read more

      I relaxed in my chair Christmas Day after all the excitement of presents had calmed down and started The House on Blackstone Moor. I couldn't put it down.

From here a mystery unravels. Who is this strange family and what is Rose's true role? The story had a tone like [...]

      The book started out well. I was enthralled by the gothic style of writing. The author did well at setting the mood and atmosphere. Unfortunately for me about half way through I struggled with the plot. It became too dark and morose for me.In my opinion this book is NOT appropriate for minors. Scenes include demonic sacrifice and rape.***The target audience for this book is adult.**** When I was a teen, I frequently checked out books from the library that were inappropriate for me. I add the min [...]

      3.5This book was shocking starting with the first page, Rose's family was killed by her father and the he killed himself.The parts I didn't like was the parts where Rose was talking about herself or the story was being prolong for some reason.This was really dark Rose was sexually abused too many times in this story.The gates of hell opens up in this book.If you like gothic romance, loss, darkness, heaven and hell then you will love this story.

      I don't usually like romance with my horror, but Carole combined the two beautifully so that they did not diminish each other. Great read!

      Pain, depravity, love, tragedy, and evil combine to create an entrancing, dark, emotional drama. The story of Rose Baines, her tragic life, her love, her hate, is an emotional upheaval of turmoil and fury. Even in love, Rose find the fire and frenzy that is, in essence, real passion. This is a story vampires, unsettled, evil spirits, demons, and gypsies is as unique as it is captivatingly twisted and disturbingly dark. The author has created a story that both terrifies the read but also tantaliz [...]

      As my first Reading Addiction Blog Tour book I was really excited to begin reading The House on Blackstone Moor by Carole Gill. The synopsis sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? I found the book to be a fast read and easy to get through. Many times I was left from chapter to chapter completely unsure of what was going to happen next.Now, I’ve never been to the UK but I love English (Scottish, Welsh, etc) accents. Sometimes while I read a book where the characters are meant to be from England I ca [...]

      Alright, so after looking the spooky book cover and reading the synopsis I was so excited to start reading this book. I thought--vampires? evil? insane? Sounds intriguing to me!This book is VERY dark in ways I hadn't expected it to be. It started off dark from the first chapter and ended dark. There were many bloody, gruesome scenes throughout the entire book, which caused a lot of horrific images to be provoked in my mind. Rose, the main character, has had a rough life- as the synopsis says-her [...]
