31 Days of Halloween - Day 4

Slade House by David Mitchell
Random House. 2015.

Beyond an obscure iron door set in the wall of a hard to find alley, lies Slade House. Every nine years, its residents lure in a special person in order to devour their souls in order to extend their own lives. Fascinating characters, strange hallucinatory imagery, a sense of dread and fascination, and beautiful writing, make this a book that's almost impossible to put down. Captivating in every sense, Slade House lures you in and refuses to let you go, just like one of its victims.
