The sprawling Kerry Manor has stood abandoned for nearly a century.

But that hasn’t kept the darkness at bay. Stories about the cursed house trickle out. Violent deaths, strange sightings, and always the chilling sound of a little girl’s song permeates the murky halls.

Today, Kerry Manor is restored to its original grandeur. Corrie and Sammy Flynn, and their daughter Isis, move into the house for a winter retreat. As they settle into the dim, gothic rooms, they cannot imagine the terror that awaits them.

Kerry Manor houses a malevolence that spans a century. A twisted tale that began when a little girl went into the Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane and emerged as something dark - something evil.

Kerry Manor is the second novel in a series of stand-alone stories in the Northern Michigan Asylum Series. Start your chilling journey today.

She worked in management for over nine years and nerds out over personal development, superheroes, and really great food.

Calling Back the Dead is the 2nd book in the Northern Michigan Asylum series by J.R. Erickson. It is the 3rd book in the series I have read. I read book 6 first then book 1 now book 2. This is a stand alone series. They all feature the Northern Michigan Asylum in some way but none of the people are the same nor are the stories. These books all seem to have a past present thing going on. So you will jump around quite a bit in time. The asylum does have a tiny part in this book from the distant past. Then you have the present, but you also have the recent past leading up to Sammy's death

This out of the 3 books I have read is my favorite. This book takes you through several stages of grief. There is a mystery and my favorite, there are ghosts.

In this book you have a young couple and their baby daughter who sublet a Kerry Manor for the winter. The house is said to be haunted. Which is right down Sammy's alley. He loves all things spooky. Halloween is right after they move and Sammy and Cory decide to host a huge Halloween party. On the night of the party Sammy is brutally killed out in the yard.

As Cory falls apart with grief Sammy's twin sister tries to help find the murderer. The ghost is that of a little girl. and the killer is someone you will never guess. 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by J.R. Erickson. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
