I enjoyed the writing style of the author, however, I felt like there was a lot of repetition in the events that occurred. If you like a strong female protagonist, a slow burn creepy tale, with a hint of grotesque details then this may be the book for you. It was a strange read for me, but it was also my first horror-based book.

3.5 stars. This is a quick, entertaining read but it got suuuuper weird towards the last third or so.

Wow wow wow! This book blew my mind. It was everything I was expecting and not expecting at the same time. Those last few chapters, I read so fast and kept me up because I had to know what was going on. Horror at it's best.
There is one scene, in particular, that was pretty unsettling. That's all I can say, cause I don't want to give anything away.


Noemi Taboada heads to High Place, an isolated house in the Mexican countryside after receiving a frantic letter from her recently married cousin, begging for help. Knowing little about her cousin's husband, she's not sure what to expect when she arrives.

She not afraid of her cousin's new family, no matter how unwelcoming they are. And soon the house starts to invade her dreams. With creepy images of the past and the house's ghosts talking to her in riddles.

Thank you so much to the publishers Random House for the ARC which I received via NetGalley

3.5 ⭐️ - The spooky atmosphere was GREAT, but the pacing of the first 60-70% of the book felt a bit slow to me. The ending was kind of worth it though.
