Tales From The Beaumont House by D.F. Holland [2 stars]

From the Description:

What do a psychic, a family of four and a computer programmer have in common? Unfortunately for them, they reside in the Beaumont House apartments. What appears to be a serene, picturesque apartment complex is actually an otherworldly reality consisting of the supernatural, the strange and the unimaginable. 

In “MoonGlow” ~ A computer programmer, developing an online vampire game, is haunted by a powerful, centuries-old spirit who desperately wants to take physical form once again.

In “Gathering of souls” ~ An interior decorator buys an antique painting with a heartbreaking, supernatural history that will turn her world upside down.

In “Heir to a new world” ~ A child is missing and it’s the family’s worst nightmare. Or so they thought. When the child is mysteriously returned the nightmare REALLY begins. The terrifying events that unfold affect not only the family, but the entire planet.

These and other stories await. From horror and sci-fi toTwilight Zone-type fiction, TALES FROM THE BEAUMONT HOUSE invites you in to stay for awhile. However, it is not advisable to move in anytime soon. 

I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this book.

Tales From The Beaumont House is a series of interconnected stories that all take place in an apartment complex. I had a really hard time with this book. I felt disconnected from the characters and found that for the most part I was uninterested in the stories. There were two bright spots for me in this book however. Fans of movies like The Ghost And Mrs. Muir will find the story The 1940's (Apt. 6c) has a very familiar storyline. The story Heir To A New World (Apt. 11a) is an interesting and horrifying look at an alien takeover. I only wish that the other stories in this collection had been as good. I can only give this one a 2 star rating.
