#65: The Unquiet Past by Kelley Armstrong (Early Review)

Tess has always been tormented by waking visions that make her question her sanity. When the orphanage she lives in burns down, she decides to face her fears and find out once and for all what is wrong with her. She believes the truth must lie with her parents, and so, armed with only an address and phone number, Tess travels to a crumbling mansion in rural Quebec, where she discovers evidence of mistreatment of mental patients. She also makes an unlikely ally and gradually unearths her family’s sad history—and finally accepts the truth about her paranormal powers.
   Part of the SECRETS—a series of seven linked novels that can be read in any order.

REVIEW:
Creeptastic!
This story had some spooky moments. A lot of intriguing moments too, where you had to keep turning the page to find out what happens. Very fast-paced.
Not a story premise that I've read before. That in itself was appealing. It helped that this psycho-ghost story lured you in.
I like the author a lot. There's an ease to her writing that has you reading for hours, without realizing how much time has past. You could help up reading a couple of hours and not really know it.
I'd love to know more about these characters too. The story came to a close, I get that, but I think it would be cool if Tess and Jackson embarked on another journey. I'm pretty invested in these characters. Enough so, I don't really want the story to stop.
That's good writing at work. 
Fans are in for a treat with this one, and newbies, enjoy!

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
