Madeline and her twin brother Roderick have the Usher name, the Usher house - and the Usher disease. Something is wrong with the family's blood - and it seems to have spread to the house itself.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Madeline Usher is doomed.
The House of Usher lives and breathes around her. For generations, it has sent every Usher spiraling into madness. It claimed her mother and her father. Now it wants Madeline and her twin brother.
No one can help them. But no one, no other Usher in the generations of their haunted family, has known the house the way Madeline does.
She may finally be the one who can destroy it all.
Until she wakes up in a coffin.


“Readers will be swept away immediately . . .. A standout take on the classic haunted-house tale replete with surprises around every shadowy corner.”
“An engrossing, creepy tale . . . Those who are already familiar with [Poe’s short story] will enjoy this different point of view and ending. . . .The updated, supernatural spin will have savvy and reluctant readers hooked. An interesting addition to the ‘twisted tales’ genre.”
“Griffin excels at depicting chilly Victorian decay in a way that makes real the dour Usher curse.”
“The disjointed timeline and chapter lengths track along with Madeline’s level of lucidity . . . making her overall narration fascinatingly untrustworthy. . . . An exquisitely wrought gothic tale for a stormy night.”
