Goodreads Synopsis: After escaping a harsh school where punishment was the lesson of the day, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton is thrilled to find employment as a maid at a boarding house. But soon after her arrival at Coldthistle House, Louisa begins to realize that the house’s mysterious owner, Mr. Morningside, is providing much more than lodging for his guests. Far from a place of rest, the house is a place of judgment, and Mr. Morningside and his unusual staff are meant to execute their own justice on those who are past being saved.
Louisa begins to fear for a young man named Lee who is not like the other guests. He is charismatic and kind, and Louisa knows that it may be up to her to save him from an untimely judgment. But in this house of distortions and lies, how can Louisa be sure whom to trust?
Featuring stunning interior illustrations from artist Iris Compiet, plus photo-collages that bring Coldthistle House to chilling life, House of Furies invites readers to a world where the line between monsters and men is ghostly thin.
My Thoughts: This book was one of my most anticipated releases of this year. It didn’t disappoint! I thought that this book was great. The characters were all so unique and I loved Lousia, our main character. It was cool to get to learn all these things that she has to learn and come to accept right along side of her. The story itself was good and interesting. I loved all the illustrations and images throughout the story. I wasn’t thrilled that it ended on a small cliffhanger but it makes me that much more excited for the next book in the series!
