  • Classic Gothic Horror with a twist.

    I don’t recall how I came across The Ancestor by Danielle Trussoni, but I’m glad I did. For some reason I love to read gothic horror novels in the Summer… you would think I would prefer Autumn… so when I read the description I knew the warm Wisconsin weather would be perfect to counteract the cold temperatures and ice of the Italian Alps. Trussoni hooked me right away with a mysterious document appearing and Bert needing to seek out her husband’s grandma, a woman who’s never liked Bert and you just know is a master at giving the evil eye, to help her make sense of the papers. She doesn’t get too much information but she does get more shade thrown at her and her family. Then we have a lawyer step in who seems like a dream man, the way he dresses, his manner of putting one at ease, and who’s free with giving out new clothes and large stacks of cash. Even with all the gothic horror that I’ve read I would have totally signed up to take a trip to a castle far away where all the townsfolk hated my family. Once Bert gets to the castle the weirdness begins and so does the fun and chills for the reader. A mysterious person kind of seen through an upstairs window, gutted animals in a far wing of the house, you know, the things that make a good gothic tale. Trussoni must have read a lot of them because her descriptions and pacing is perfect. When we finally found out the family secret it took an interesting turn and had me thinking about a favorite series of mine, the InCryptid series by Seanan McGuire, so that made The Ancestor even better for me. I don’t want to give too much away since the enjoyable part of The Ancestor is finding out what each layer contains, but I know I will be reading her next book no matter what it’s about.
