“Clay House”: A Middle Grade Paranormal Horror NovelPosted: November 27, 2020 Filed under: Book Review, Books, Fiction, Horror, Middle Grade, Review | Tags: BookReview, Clay House, Ghosts, horror, Jordan Elizabeth, Middle Grade Fiction, Writing to be Read 2 Comments
Sometimes evil dwells in the land itself, and it can burrow deep, laying dormant for a long time. But it always awakens eventually.
Moving to a new home is never easy, especially when you have to deal with a not so nice step-father, and the house is old and spooky. The town is quick to fill her in on the mysterious stories about her house, and when she finds a cemetary in her new back yard and her little brother Mark starts behaving oddly, Tatiana begins to get scared. The increasing cruelness of her step-father, leads her to uncover another kind of secret. Now all she has to do is figure out what to do with what she knows.
The bonus story, “Olney”, which is included with Clay House, is equally well-written with a similar theme, providing extra reader value for your book buck.
With two brave young heroines and two spine chilling ghosts, resulting in two well-crafted stories filled with twists and turns to keep readers guessing, I give Clay House five quills.

A worthy read, Robbie. I’m sure you would enjoy it. Jordan’s ghosts always give me tingles. You can almost feel them. The same is true with the ghost in this story.
