Review - Deadly Secrets: Base Fear by S.C. Fisher

Synopsis -

There is something wrong with the house. Something far beyond creaking floorboards and woodworm.

Ordinarily, Paige Daniels embraces the challenges that come with having a parent serving in the military. However, when her family are posted to the sleepy Welsh island of Ynys Mon, Paige discovers that their new quarter comes with a grislier history than most.

Plagued by an unknown entity with a malicious streak, Paige must join the pieces of a decades old puzzle if she hopes to save the ones she loves...

Review -

There are few things more intimidating that moving into a new home, especially when you find out that it might well be haunted. That is the premise of Deadly Secrets: Base Fear. Told from the perspective of a teenage girl named Paige, this is a story that is well paced, very well written, and a perfect choice for readers who loved the Goosebumps books.

There is not a long wait for the strangeness in the house, most notably in the attic, to begin, but the story does not feel at all rushed. The author does a nice job of introducing the main players and building some backstory.

The scares are decidedly PG, which is not a bad thing, but if there is an issue here, it's that the story does come to an abrupt end. I'm glad the author made me aware that this book is paper of a series and ended on a cliffhanger, as it would otherwise have been a little jarring.

There was enough here to make me want to continue the series. There is one more book for now, but apparently also 2 more in the works, so keep an eye out for those. You can pick up your copy and look for the rest of the series by clicking HERE.
