I guess I'm feeling the Halloween spirit, so I picked up House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo today (ISBN 9781595547279). Here is the first line:
The walls of the house absorbed the woman's screams, until they felt to her as muffled and pointless as yelling underwater.The first line of this one really kind of creeps me out. Questions that immediately came to mind: Why is the woman screaming? Is she going to be OK? Is what happens to her the event makes the house so creepy, or are there more creepy events to come?
