The House of Mystery, Volume 3: The Spaces Between

House of Mystery, Vol. 3: The Space BetweenHouse of Mystery, Vol. 3: The Space Between by Matthew Sturges

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sadly, I like this series less with each book. I am not giving up on it yet, but I'm getting icky feels that leave me disenchanted.  I have to be honest and say I don't really get the kernel of thought behind the story.  I feel like it's out of reach of me and I don't think the expected revelation is coming as I read.  I feel like my chain is being tugged, and I hate being manipulated.

I feel that it teeters on the edge of being the kind of horror that doesn't appeal to me.  Stories with darkness that don't make sense.  Seeing bad things happen to good people for no good reason. Where things seem random and unclear.  I'm sure that some readers of this series understand, and if you do, I'd love to hear what you think of it.  For me, it's just starting to be the law of diminishing returns.

I think my litmus test will be the next book. If I feel that way about it, I'm going to throw in the towel on this series.
