The Ghost of Normandy Road (Haunted Minds Vol 1) by John Hennessy Review:

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity in return for a fair and honest review.
Many thanks!

Going into my second reading of a John Hennessy book, I was expecting quite the shocking ending and a scare or two, but never did I
imagine the horror that would await me in his ninth overall book, The Ghost of Normandy Road. The first in the Haunted Minds series,
this short story packed quite a punch, delivering a unique and ambitious tale told with a mature voice but through the eyes of a child.

The story follows a young boy, (10-year old Danny), who must navigate through a mystery involving three legends that have no direct
correlation, but all seem to be coming to light all around him at once. Once he begins to brave the myth and chooses to venture forth into
the house on Normandy Road, his life will never be the same, as horrors he could never have thought possible begin to seep into his life.

What I really loved about this story was the setting and tone of the story. It almost seemed like a modern take on a Victorian era setting,
yet was told with a modern voice. While there were a few issues with the formatting that translated to the digital copy, I was able to see
in this story the beautiful way in which John Hennessy can subtly convey true and terrifying horror. The imagery used in this story was
brilliant, and had goosebumps sent down my arms and shivers up my spine.

Overall, this is John Hennessy’s best work to date. I enjoyed the story and loved the surprise twist at the end. You can’t help but become
invested in the characters and their stories, and as this is the first in a series, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment
that is sure to come our way. I would give The Ghost of Normandy Road a 4/5 stars, and highly recommend you guys pick up your copy today!
