Reviews of THE BONE HOUSE:
“If there’s one thing teen fiction needs right now, it’s an injection of something fresh. And by fresh, I mean sliced open, raw and bleeding. Barry’s Bone House is exactly that: a teenage serial killer played out with echoes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. What’s not to love?” – David Gatward, author of DOOM RIDER and THE DEAD series.
“The Bone House takes horror and plunges it into the cold depths of insanity. Read this, and get ready to sleep with the lights on.” – Tommy Donbavand, author of SCREAM STREET
