The Homecoming by Andrew Pyper | Review

I was expecting an old-school locked-room mystery that took place in a secluded cabin in the woods, but that is not what I got.

I admit this book was creepy and had elements of what I thought was going to be paranormal. However, the direction if when was more sci-fi. I don't want to spoil anything, so I’ll keep it extremely vague but I'm not a paranormal or a sci-fi fan, so I didn't really enjoy this. The story was told from a one-person POV.  However, most of the characters weren't really lovable, and I felt zero sympathy for them.

The pace was medium, so I was able to power through the book in a couple of days though, not a bad sign. The story was unpredictable, and the conclusion was okay.

This one just wasn’t for me. If you like sci-fi stuff, you might enjoy this one, but for me… it’s a meh.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


What if everything you knew about the people you loved was a lie?

After the death of their absentee father, Aaron and Bridge Quinlan travel to a vast rainforest property in the Pacific Northwest to hear the reading of his will. There, they meet up with their mother and troubled sister, Franny, and are shocked to discover the will’s terms: in order to claim their inheritance they must remain at the estate for thirty days without any contact with the outside world. Despite their concerns, they agree.

The Quinlans soon come to learn their family has more secrets than they ever imagined—revelations that at first inspire curiosity, then fear. Why does Bridge have faint memories of the estate? Why did their father want them to be sequestered there together? And what is out there they feel pulling them into the dark heart of the woods?
