    4.75 stars This book will be released on Dec 4th 2018. I received an ARC in a Goodreads giveaway from Emily Bestler Books/Atria books. I had never read an Ezekiel Boone book before, although I had kept my eye out for a copy of The Hatching since it sounded like something I might...

    Truth ? I?m disappointed. I loved the author?s Hatching series. And while I recognize that, by its very nature, The Mansion can?t be a bitey bitey chomp fest, I still expected something?epic. Instead, I got flashbacks. Lots of ?em. The kind where eventually you start ...

    THE MANSION is Ezekiel Boone's new book after fabulous The Hatching trilogy. This book is something else completely. It's a story about an old crumbling mansion and a love story that will destroy a friendship and turn two men into bitter enemies. Shawn Eagle and Billy Stafford were ...

    I was so excited when I learned I won this through a Goodreads giveaway. Don't let the synopsis or the book cover fool you. There was no "horror" or "scary" anything in this one. It was slow moving, bizarre, and 400+ pages to boot!!! Was very disappointed to say the least. ...

    3.5 Stars Ezekiel Boone has an amazing ability to turn mundane every day objects or beings into something truly terrifying. Something that once read, you can never unread or un-picture again. Once you have that terrifying thought of the what if in your mind, it's so very hard to eve...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/12/20/... Following The Hatching trilogy, Ezekiel Boone returns with another sci-fi horror thriller, this time delving into the world of artificial intelligence by tackling an idea I?m sure most of us who utilize s...

    It was a real challenge for me to settle on a rating for this book - I'm firm on 3.5 stars, and there's reasons to go both directions with it. The Mansion is a change of pace from Ezekiel Boone, and if you followed a trail of giant spiders to this book, you might be disappointed. Th...

    The Mansion started off a little slow for me with the introduction of characters and explanations of the technology Shawn and Billy were trying to invent way back before Eagle Logic officially took off. But as soon as that was out of the way, I was completely hooked wanting to find out...

    'It was one thing to get a computer to move in the spaces between the ones and zeros, but it was another thing to force her to live there.' So this book ended up being entirely too long with very little amount of it actually being a thriller (? SO MAYBE DON'T CALL IT A THRILLER T...

    ???? / 5 The idea behind The Mansion by Ezekiel Boone is an interesting and fascinating one, but this book is not going to be for everyone! What it's about: Young programmers Shawn Eagle and Billy Stafford work for 2 years in a small, isolated cabin next to the decrepit E...

    A recovering alcoholic in a marriage on the rocks is offered a job to oversee a former hotel, now just a mansion, notorious for its macabre past. Sound familiar? Stop me if you've heard this one, then - there's a gifted child, in this case twins, with supernatural abilities thanks to b...

    Thank you to Net Galley and to Atria books for the e-ARC of THE MANSION. I'm sorry to say that I'm setting it aside for now. I love this author's style of writing and I love this premise, but it's taking way too long for anything to happen. I'm finding myself dragging my feet every...

    Review: THE MANSION by Ezekiel Boone Readers who have read Ezekiel Boone's HATCHING Trilogy know this author cranks up tense suspense and delivers the scares. I venture to predict: "you ain't seen nothing yet." THE MANSION scared the living daylights out of me, a Haunted House story...

    With all due respect to the publisher, what the fuck were you thinking? One of my updates for this book was: "This book reads like water tastes." That's really all you need to know but I'm going to go into detail, so buckle up and grab your snacks, we about to go all in on this moth...

    I absolutely love the author's spider apocalypse trilogy and couldn't wait to see what else he was going to throw at us and here it is! Something completely different from his other work and I enjoyed it immensely. Billy's drawn back to this mansion that him and his ex (and soon to ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. And, sigh, an honest review is what they're going to get. I'm sad it's not going to be super positive. I sincerely adored Boone's Hatching trilogy. Seriously, I obsessed ov...

    The book started off very interesting and quite different from Boone's "Hatching" series. However, the story suffered greatly from too many pages of characters' thoughts and histories. A great deal of that would have been better left as the author's ideas behind his characters, but the...

    Special thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free, electronic ARC of this novel. I was super excited to read ?The Mansion? by Ezekiel Boone, not only because of the time of year, but because I absolutely loved Boone?s previous works (The Hatching and Skitter). That b...

    The Mansion by Ezekiel Boone is a horror story that brings the idea of a haunting into this century and the digital age. After reading one might think twice before ever asking Siri or Alexa for any more favors in their lives. Straight out of school Shawn Eagle and Billy Stafford spe...
