The Fall, Bethany Griffin (trade paperback)
Madeline Usher is doomed.
She has spent her life fighting fate, and she thought she was succeeding. Until she woke up in a coffin.
Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that seems to have mind of its own.
Madeline’s only chance of escape lies in destroying the house. But to do that she risks destroying everything she loves.
A gripping psychological thriller, reimagining Edgar Allan Poe’s classics The Fall of the House of Usher, by the author of the Masque of the Red Death sequence.
I am so excited to delve into this as I loved the Red Death duology. And I didn’t think this was out until January (it’s actually October) so yay! Thanks Indigo!
