Publisher Description

In her all-new supernatural thriller, bestselling indie horror author Ania Ahlborn asks: How far would you go for success? What would you be capable of if the promise of forever was real?

With his marriage on the rocks and his life in shambles, washed-up true-crime writer Lucas Graham is desperate for a comeback, one more shot at the bestselling success he once enjoyed. His chance comes when he’s promised exclusive access to death row inmate Jeffrey Halcomb, the notorious cult leader and mass murderer who’s ready to break his silence after thirty years, and who contacted Lucas personally from his maximum-security cell. With nothing left to lose, Lucas leaves New York to live and work from the scene of the crime: a split-level farmhouse on a gray-sanded beach in Washington State whose foundation is steeped in the blood of Halcomb’s diviners—runaways who were drawn to his message of family, unity, and unconditional love. There, Lucas sets out to capture the real story of the departed faithful. Except that he’s not alone. For Jeffrey Halcomb promised his devout eternal life…and within these walls, they’re far from dead.

“WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THIS!!! I literally screamed at the end. I am seething. This is not what I was promised. I forced myself to read the entire book. All. Of. It. For that reason alone, I hate this book. I wanted to read a spooky psychological horror book. It started off rly well. The characters felt real. The writing wasn’t bad. I actually liked most of the writing-minus the 12yr old who seems like she was more like a 16yr old. The father was an idiot, the daughter angsty, and the mother absent. Everything made sense. For the most part I get why characters did what they did-the parents were complete idiots. Who takes their kid w them to work when they don’t have to?”
“Rating: 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Into These Walls by Ania Ahlborn SUMMARY: Lucas Graham, a struggling true-crime writer facing personal and professional turmoil, sees an opportunity for a comeback when he's offered exclusive access to death row inmate Jeffrey Halcomb, a notorious cult leader and mass murderer. Halcomb contacts Lucas personally, offering insights from his maximum-security cell. Lucas moves to a farmhouse in Washington State, where the cult's atrocities occurred, to delve into the story. However, he soon realizes he's not alone, as the spirits of Halcomb's followers haunt the house, seeking eternal life as promised by their leader. MY THOUGHTS”
