My favorite Brite novel, and the one with the best characterization. A young man returns to the home where his father went homicidally insane years ago. While there, he meets and falls in love with a hacker on the run. Is their love enough to combat the sinister madness of the house? ( )

This is really a 4.5.

Another of Brite's "is it romance or is it horror?" books. This one adheres almost perfectly to the typical romance formula, and still manages to be quite down and dirty. I felt like it was an ideal combination of both genres, although it didn't quite blow me out of the water.

Poor kids... ( )

I should've read this shortly after Lost Souls, way back in the day.

Weeltje's contribution to the Dutch version of the Favorites Roundabout.

It was an okay read, but not much more than that. It seems that I am getting myself into rings that involve quite explicit sexual content and as with the other, I did not like it.

The first half of the book was okay, but despite that more happened, it did not really like the second.

I'm done and it'll go on to the next reader. ( )
