In The House of Leviathan by B D Bruns has such an eerie cover with a ghothic ghostly feel to it, that I would have grabbed this for that reason alone.
How about you? Do covers affect you like that or are you drawn to a book for another reason?
I love the eerie, gothic cover for In The House of the Leviathan by B D Bruns. It fits the story inside, which takes place in 1863.
Monsters and spirits, gossip and fear. Who is to say what is the truth.
Could the Leviathan be terrorizing the sea? Could the spirits be terrorizing the papermill? It will test their faith in God.
On the beautiful, inviting Amalfi Coast of Italy, a spirit is terrorizing the town, it’s anger knowing no bounds, seeking…
Who is next? Why?
There are those who give their all and there are those who let their anger and jealousy fly, never caring who pays the price, just striking out.
I enjoyed the story, which was not quite what I was expecting. Did that affect my rating…I don’t know.
