Amity by Micol Ostow
"Here is a house of ruin and rage, of death and deliverance.
Here is where I live, not living.
Here is always mine.
When Connor's family moves to Amity, a secluded house on the peaceful banks of New England's Concord River, his nights are plagued with gore-filled dreams of demons. destruction, and revenge. Dreams he kind of likes. Dreams he could make real, with Amity's help.
Ten years later, Gwen's family moves to Amity for a fresh start. Instead, she's haunted by lurid visions, disturbing voices, and questions about her own sanity. But with her history, who would ever believe her? And what could be done if they did?
Because Amity isn't just a house. She is a living force, bent on manipulating her inhabitants to her twisted will. She will use Connor and Gwen to bring about a violent end as she's done before. As she'll do again. And again. And again."- summary from Amazon
A creepy, spine-tingling book from Ostow, who also did a wonderful job with her previous scary book Family. While that one focused on the Manson Family murders of 1969, this book focuses on the horror story of the Amityville house and Ostow writes beautifully and hauntingly about it and about these two fictional families that lived there.
