ABOUT BO BRIAR
Bo Briar nursed a love of art, music and architecture from childhood as well as all things ghostly. Her years at a British boarding school secluded in an ancient English county of majestic stately homes, historical towns and quaint medieval villages, nestled among mysterious forests and chocolate-box landscapes formed many of her lifelong impressions, beliefs and ideas.
Although having a natural affinity for the countryside Bo lived most of her life between the big cities of London and Hong Kong. Though widely travelled, she will always return to the two cities she calls home.
Her love for writing began at university where she would often diverge from composing dissertations to creating spooky stories. After taking a sabbatical from work in the hope of quality time with her two young children, she has also managed to complete and publish her first novel Morgan Hall. She is currently writing the sequel.
Having never read gothic fiction before, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I picked up Morgan Hall. I did look up the description of gothic fiction which states:
Gothic fiction, sometimes referred to as Gothic horror, is a genre or mode of literature that combines elements of both horror and romance.
This sums up Morgan Hall exactly. I felt so in tune with the characters, but even more so, the way the estate was described I felt even more drawn to it. It had a life of its own and the characters were well written and melded into the story flawlessly. Don’t be put off by the slower pace as this is not meant to be something that is non-stop excitement, but more of a tension building joy ride through a story that will keep you waiting for what’s next.
Pick this book up if you are looking for a well written story that has twists and turns that you may be looking at buildings in your town to see if you have a “Morgan Hall”. And maybe, it is more than what it seems!
