I got my first few reviews for The Haunted Halls. I’m glad people seem to be digging it.  Here’s a couple of them from Amazon. Thanks to Zach and Cami!

In the small Maine town of Hollis Oaks there lies an old hotel, the Burton Inn, that housed shadows and secrets before the birth of the cold entity that calls the Burton Inn home. Those shadows remain as this Ice Queen strengthens her presence enough to trigger her endgame, rebirth.

A ragtag group of employees and a true shaman who has shunned his legacy in favor of a dishonest life of showmanship are all that stand in the way of the frigid, sordid, spirit.

“The Haunted Halls” is a quickly engaging and hyper-active read. Roaring out of the turnstile on page one, it maintains a fairly constant pace throughout. There’s not a lot of downtime, not many catch-your breath moments, which keeps you from wanting to put it down.

There’s an almost non-stop amount of splatter and gore, and a fair share of skin and inappropriate behavior, from an interesting cast of characters. Add solid, believable dialogue and vivid set pieces into the mix and you have the makings for a perfect dark-and-stormy-night read. And what better setting is there than and old hotel saturated with history (and blooooood, mua-ha-ha!)?

I dug this book quite a bit and I am eagerly awaiting Mr. Rolfe’s next offering. I’ll be there in line on day one with a charged Kindle (and perhaps a shot or two of Jack Daniels Honey), and until that time I’ll gladly place “The Haunted Halls” on both the “to be re-read” pile and on the “recommend to others” list.

If you’re a fan of Stephen King, this is the novel to read! You are taken back and forth between the 80’s and present day at the Bruton Inn where Sarah starts murdering the married men she’s screwing, and then she and her friend murder each other. Fast forward to the present and the murders start again, but some are transformed into demons helping to kill as many of the guests as possible so that she may become more powerful. A Shaman and desk clerk team up against the demon and her minions, but will they win?
