Ashthorne – April Yates

On a backdrop of book pages, an iPad with the cover of Ashthorne by April Yates. At the bottom of the image, on the left-hand side, a strip of torn paper with a quote: "The atmosphere and the growing creepiness are sensational." and a url:

This isn’t my usual kind of story so keep that in mind when reading this review. It’s horror (I finally added a Horror category, by the way), which I kinda missed from the blurb and while that would probably have kept me away, it’s what I ended up enjoying the most. I never really connected to the characters and felt the romance was rushed – the first “I love you” arrived when I was still under the impression that the relationship was mostly lust-driven – but the atmosphere and the growing creepiness are sensational.

Ashthorne is a novella, therefore a rather quick read, and there would have been potential for a longer novel, but the novella format works really well for the rising tension and resolution. 3.5⭐️
