Review: Sweet Damage by Rebecca James



I still dream about Anna London's house. In my dreams it's as if the house itself has sinister intentions. But in real life it wasn't the house that was responsible for what happened. It was the people who did the damage ...'

When Tim Ellison finds a cheap room to rent in the perfect location in Sydney it looks like a huge stroke of luck. In fact the room comes with a condition, and the owner of the house, the mysterious Anna London, is unfriendly and withdrawn. When strange and terrifying things start happening in the house at night, Tim wonders if taking the room is a mistake. But then his feelings for Anna start to change, and when her past comes back with a vengeance, Tim is caught right in the middle of it.

A thrilling rollercoaster of a story - read it with the lights on


My thoughts
Sweet damage is a really creepy read. I don't want to say too much for fear of spoiling it but I will say how unsettling it is and how it keeps you guessing with every page about what is actually happening in the creepy house with the odd girl that Tim, the main character, has moved into. I didn't guess where it was going at all and I got to the point where I literally couldn't put it down because I needed to know what happened next.

All in all an awesome read which I devoured.
