Heap House is part of a three-book series. The titles are Heap House, Foulsham and Langdon, making the Iremonger Trilogy. I was thrilled when I saw them on Amazon.com- so I purchased two and placed a pre-order on the third.
Now I'm sorry I did. Heap House was about many things, but the way the book was written, I didn't find myself caring about a single one. First off, it would seem every one is related to the Iremongers, which is supposed to be a family name. The problem is that the family marries within itself. The more Iremonger's, the more family but third, fourth and fifth cousins don't matter. They're called Iremonger's- because they're distant family. Only the full blooded Iremonger's are called by actual names. Also each member, once born, is given an item. They have to carry this item everywhere they go. All the time. Some even form their personalities from these items. Sadly, most of these items were once people! That's the other piece to the story that was interesting, yet crazy!
Clod, who is a second cousin can hear the items that were once people, but they only say one thing: their names. First and last, that's all they say. If a birth item is lost, everyone calls on Clod to help them find it- he's the only one who can hear them. Anyway, things aren't normal in Heap House anymore and before Clod is to marry another Iremonger named Pinalippy, he and a distant Iremonger must solve the mystery of why things are turning into people and people into things...
It was boring, I'm sorry. It was almost written in rhyme at times, with repetition and sentences almost put together backwards. I grew tired of it early on. There was a time when I'd been thrilled to get this book. Now I wish I'd purchased something else. Sorry. Time find another book; a good book. Have a great one! 📚
