VERLIEGE by Micheal Rivers_Review

Review of Verliege by Micheal Rivers
5 stars

“Verliege” is a fast-paced Supernatural mystery/thriller which keeps readers simultaneously intrigued and guessing “What’s next?” Focusing on a German castle built very early In the 17th century, and the American couple which comes to possess (and be possessed by) it, the story will have readers checking over their shoulders and listening for strange, unexpected, footsteps and voices. The cliché is: “If something is too good to be true-often it isn’t true.” Adrian and Alicia tour a beautiful ancient German castle, nestled above a tiny anachronistic village, and Alicia falls in love with it. Discovering they can buy it for only $300,000 American (unbelievable!), they purchase it, and historian Adrian sets about discovering the secrets of the castle, both through research and by questioning a devoted groundskeeper-caretaker. As days pass, it becomes apparent that Alicia also has inroads into the Castle’s past, but certainly not via the same venues as Adrian-for she is in contact with denizens of the past-literally.

I couldn’t put the story aside, and I venture to say the same will be true for you, Gentle Readers. Of course, remember to look behind you every now and then, and glance toward the door of the room, just in case someone unexpected is passing by.

An e-book copy was provided to me by the author in return for my fair and impartial review.
