Vermin by Allison M. Dickson




A haunted house story with every bug & creepy crawly imaginable! if this doesnt make you shudder just thinking about it.... then you are in for a treat with the almost gleeful picture that AMD paints for you!

Some great back stories to the characters, including glimpses of why the house has a supposed haunted history, a fantastic way of telling the tale.

The continuous onslaught of vermin is amazing, its like a never ending gag fest; just not of the laughing kind :(

The ending was enough to actually make me squirm in my seat.

I am beginning to see a trend with AMDs brilliantly skilled writing, its a sure fire horror read but with a great element of humour too.

Smiles and shudders - a great combination!
