*Review* Amity By Micol Ostow

*I received this arc ecopy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review * 

Connor's family moves to Amity to escape shady business deals. Ten years later, Gwen's family moves to Amity for a fresh start after she's recovered from a psychotic break.
But something is not right about this secluded house. Connor's nights are plagued with gore-filled dreams of demons and destruction. Dreams he kind of likes. Gwen has lurid visions of corpses that aren't there and bleeding blisters that disappear in the blink of an eye. She knows Amity is evil and she must get her family out, but who would ever believe her?
Amity isn't just a house. She is a living force, bent on manipulating her inhabitants to her twisted will. She will use Connor and Gwen to bring about a bloody end as she's done before. As she'll do again.
Alternating between parallel narratives, Amity is a tense and terrifying tale suggested by true-crime events that will satisfy even the most demanding horror fan.

I was in the mood for a good horror book and when I was accepted to review this I just couldn't wait to read it. 

The is a story of two separate families that both lived in the Amity. It goes back and forth to what happens to both families in the house. I was worried I would get confused to the way it is written I didn't feel confused at all. 

It is a horror novel but a YA horror and I wasn't scared at all but might you I do not scare easily.  I know if this was written many years ago when I was a teen this would have been something I would have absolutely loved just as much I loved reading it the other day.  

It is very well written and kept me reading. The ending seemed a bit abrupt so this is the reason why I give this 3 out of 5. 

This book will be available August 26th 2014 and you can pre-order in most book store right now .
