Madhouse by Miguel Estrada #Review
Posted by brriske
Don’t talk to strangers.
Faced with his parents’s divorce, eleven-year-old Lucas runs away from his house with the hope that his family will get back together to find him. On his way walking through the empty streets, he is picked up by a mysterious woman who offers to take care of him and provide him with a loving family.
The boy then wakes up in shackles, confined to a bed in a decrepit house in the middle of nowhere and will have to face his deepest fears in order to survive in his new home.
Join Lucas in a desperate attempt to get back to his family in Madhouse, the first published book from horror-thriller author Miguel Estrada
This book is a standalone horror story. Lucas is a young boy who runs away and is immediately kidnapped by a crazy couple. Lucas comes face to face with all of his fears, especially his fear of the dark. This story is extremely violent with a lot of the story taken up with descriptions of the rooms Lucas finds himself in as he runs for his life. The book seems to want to take an erotic twist with the woman and mannequin dancing in the basement, but never follows through.
