The world is on its knees.
A deadly pandemic throttles the globe. Democracy has crumbled. Armed gangs of militant protestors stalk the streets. Amidst this waking nightmare, a new horror develops.

Six Rooms by Gemma Amor – Spotlight

Welcome back to my weekly Spotlight series.

This week’s book under spotlight is Six Rooms by Gemma Amor.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

Welcome, all, to the Sunshire Chateau: Lestershire’s premier tourist attraction. It sits high on a hill overlooking town, shrouded by tall trees and rumors of murder, scandal and intrigue. Tickets are hard to come by, so hold yours close, else the Tour Guide may not let you in. And that would be a pity, for there are so many things to see within these walls–history, glamor, and riches beyond your wildest imagination. Just remember the following rules: don’t wander off alone, don’t be rude to the Guide, and don’t, whatever you do, touch the valuables.

Because the ghosts don’t like it when you touch their things.
