When I was offered the chance to read the sequel to THE MOORE HOUSE, I was all over it, and I’m happy to say that this novel was even more intense and brutal than that one was!
It’s hard for me to believe that I read THE MOORE HOUSE back in 2018. Where does the time go? It didn’t take me long to settle back into Goffstown, New Hampshire though. That distinctive New England feel is here, along with that mysterious small town vibe and of course, Father MacLeod. This time around the Father is looking for ways to escape his deal with the devil, and the pawnshop owner and his trusty friend Rex are ready to help. Children are disappearing and then, when two of them return apparently unharmed, their parents are thrilled. Thrilled until they discover their daughters aren’t their daughters anymore. What do I mean by that? You’ll have to read this to find out!
Once again, Tony Tremblay sets everything up, gets you to like his characters and then he proceeds to put them through the wringer. It is sometimes hard for me to reconcile the super-nice and caring Tony in real life, with the author that puts his characters through hell. It makes me, as a reader, fearful to care for these people because I know what might be in store for them. Take my word for it, nice-guy Tony is gone when he’s writing. Not one character is spared from the ugliness that the demons rain down on them. Not one.
Even though this book is a sequel, being familiar with The Moore House is not necessary to enjoy this one. It stands alone either way. DO NOT WEEP FOR ME once again proves that Tony Tremblay is an author to be reckoned with!
Thank you to Tony for the paperback ARC in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it!
