Affinity's Window by Douglas L. Wilson - Book Review

By 7:04 PM , , , , ,

Affinity’s Window, a horror/thriller equal to Poltergeist, it will have you afraid to turn the light off!

Affinity Bell, a lonely child whose only companion is the threadbare doll she’s christened Mr. Moppet, roams the empty halls of Bell Manor attempting to escape the evil that pursues her. The Others, the horrifying creatures only she can see, attack young Affinity at every opportunity. But Mr. Moppet will protect her, he’s told her so, and Mr. Moppet knows magic.

Tanner Dann, a world-weary writer searching for proof that ghosts actually do exist, is being called by an unknown force to Bell Manor. Will the two powerful psychics he’s hired help him to discover the proof for which he’s been searching, or will they too be dragged down into the noxious pit that is Bell Manor?

Evil flows through the heart of Bell Manor, pulsing and ebbing like some hideous tide. Will it drag Tanner and his friends down into its gaping maw, or will they battle back at Affinity’s Window?

My Review
What can I say about Affinity's Window? This book blew me away. It's probably the best horror story I've read in a while.

At first I was a little confused by the first few chapters, but then my mind caught up with everything and I realized what was going on. Affinity's Window is like Groundhog's Day (the movie), but a lot more horrific. Just trust me on that.

Once the story gets going in chapter four, that's when you'd best buckle up for one crazy, intense ride through a haunted house that hides more than just ghosts. It's a mansion filled with darkness, and the three main characters who aren't Affinity, must do whatever they can to survive it. Their souls depend on it.

I don't want to give anything away, because this book is fantastic, so I'll try not to give too much away in my review.

I really liked the characters Tanner, Linda, and Claire. Although they have their flaws, they're likeable characters who you can't help but root for. Their friendship builds the farther into the book you get, and by the end, well... I won't say anything more.

Affinity is also a character you want to like, but at the same time, you find yourself frustrated by her, or bothered by her. Although, to be fair, there's a reason for that that I won't spoil. Once you read the book, everything will start to make sense.

The plot is exciting, intense, and filled with moments of terror. It's like Poltergeist on crack or something. But better. It moves along at a steady pace, with the story falling into place more and more the farther into it you get. What seems confusing at first will end up having you on the edge of your seat, anticipation coursing through your veins as you anxiously await the thrilling finale.

I loved every second of this book, and if you're a fan of horror, I highly recommend it. Definitely worth it! I give it five very well-deserved stars!
