The Keys by Alyne de Winter
Book Description: At six years old, Lissette attends a concert by the handsome and dazzling concert pianist, Armand Guy de Rais. She is instantly infatuated. Ten years later, their lives destroyed by the French Revolution, Lissette’s mother marries her off to a wealthy aristocrat living on a Caribbean island. Could Lissette’s childhood fantasy be coming true? Or is there more than a whiff of decay in the flowers, in the house, in the music of the keys?
My Review: This is such a great story. It really is. It’s dark, creepy and you don’t know where it’s going to go. My kind of story. It is super short. It was over before I knew it which was sad because I wanted to keep reading.
Lissette’s new home is almost a character its self. Creepy doesn’t even cover the feeling. It’s almost its own reality. You really have to read it to understand. This would make an excellent scary movie. It even has a twist ending. What more could I ask for?
Creepy new husband? Check. Insanely weird house? Check. Completely bizarre staff obviously hiding something? Check. Totally scary what the hell is going on moment? Check. Ending that you don’t see coming? Check. I can’t wait to read some more stories by this author.
