Review - Cribbins by RH Dixon

Synopsis -

He belonged in Hell, but lived next door...While struggling to cope with the emotional and physical impact of being diagnosed with a crippling autoimmune disease, single mother Sophie Harrington finds herself haunted by an unexpected tormentor from her past: her old neighbour Ronnie Cribbins.

Cribbins has been dead for the past fifteen years and Sophie is faced with the possibility that his malevolent spirit could be the cause of her autoimmunity, because she can feel him attacking her senses from within.

Amidst her relentless struggle, Sophie seeks solace and assistance from her new neighbour, Piotr Kamiński—a troubled younger man with a dark past. Together, they embark on a perilous journey into Sophie's forgotten childhood, to unearth a secret she never realised she had concealed.

Sophie's path to salvation lies in facing the chilling reality of her connection to Cribbins, defying the darkness threatening to consume her and her young daughter, before they are forever engulfed in his cold, black, putrid domain.

Will Sophie find the strength to conquer her own demons and free herself from Cribbins' haunting grip, or will their souls forever be lost in a realm where anguish and sickness reign supreme?

Review -

There is nothing better than going into a book totally blind and ending up getting one of your favorite reads of the year. That is what happened with Cribbins.

This is a unique take on the whole haunted house genre, as it extends beyond the property to a woman that lived next door as a little girl. The beauty, though, is that said woman is having health issues, as well as an unwanted admirer, that make you question everything that is happening to her.

There are some genuinely creepy moments in Cribbins, the majority of which come from the brilliantly written titular character. Cribbins is a man that will haunt your nightmares the same way he does the main character.

LOVED this book, shich you can pick up by clicking HERE.
