If you've read this book already, then you will recognize I have the wrong colored feathers falling, but this just worked so perfectly! If you have not read The Making of Gabriel Davenport and you're in to paranormal, supernatural thrillers, then you should get it when you take your next book budget for a ride. I can happily say, this book put me in mind of Alfred Hitchcock! There was something going on and it was of demonic nature, but the way it held me... classic!
So the story is about more than a young man. It's about a process and revenge. And maybe even a bit of young adult attitude and the stealing of a soul- a lot went on and came together perfectly. You see, Gabriel lives in The Manor, a place that studies the paranormal and supernatural. Each resident, other than the curator (Carver), has a talent that assists in discovering and possibly resolving unnatural occurrences. While there, he's continuously observed by things unseen. He's also under protection - been under protection since infancy and never told why.
While he's dealing with such secrets and insecurities, his mother is tucked away in a room in the same home, completely disconnected from reality. Or is she? Things talk to her and convince her to do things, where the ones who care for her can't even carry on a conversation! Gabriel's father, dead fifteen years, decided to pay everyone a visit too. HOW DOES THIS ALL COME TOGETHER?!! Sounds crazy, I know and you don't exactly get all of the answers, thanks to the ending, but I have a feeling I'll be finding out as soon as the follow-up hits shelves and Kindle!
Be sure you grab yourself a copy of The Making of Gabriel Davenport as soon as you can. Find out what all the hubbub is about! On to a new read. 📚
