Hell View Manor by Crea Reitan
What do you see when you look into the windows of Hell?
I’ve always been a bit of a thrill seeker – questioned the unknown and the impossible. I want answers to everything! So when a new organization pops up in an old abandoned elderly facility promising that they can allow you to see into the pits of Hell, I’m first on the list to sign up. When my time finally comes and I’m offered a week’s long stay at Hell View Manor, I jump at the chance.
I’m enthralled with what I see. Fascinated by the torture, the screaming souls, and the demons administering the eternal punishments. Although we’re told the windows are a one way glass, I start to doubt that they are when a man being tortured begins to stare straight at me through the window. And then he starts talking to me. He’s telling me he doesn’t belong there. He was framed. Innocent. And he begs me to help.
As I begin to poke around, it feels as if there are eyes on me wherever I go. I’m being watched – stalked. And then I’m pretty sure I accidentally break one of Hell’s windows and it’s no longer a one way view but a doorway in. Now I wonder if I’m going to get sucked into Hell. If I’ll be able to escape Hell View Manor. Or if I even want to leave.
That’s when I meet the president of the company and I swear, I’m looking at the Devil himself.

What do you get when you add a house that isn’t a house, but a prison that punishes souls by demons, and a character that’s fascinated with the house?
You have a story that you can’t put down.
I loved this book, a fast paced action story that had characters you’ll love. Really well thought out and written. It’s an original idea and has the potential to be a series.
When Itani receives a ticket to go view the house, to say she’s excited is an understatement. It’s a day she’s been looking forward to for a while. She’s a ghost hunter, she has all the equipment and knows how to use it.
But will reality match her imagination?
The story happens over a week. So it’s a little fast in some places, in fact a few more chapters to grow the characters a little more wouldn’t have hurt the book in the slightest. I know there is a lot to pack into a week, but in places it did feel rushed, and some characters got more pages than others.
I liked how the visitors were summed up and we were given background on them all, and the reasons why they were sent the invitation.
It sets the scenes pretty well, you can almost imagine the house with it’s one way mirrors and rules to keep the visitors safe. The tension as Itani interacts with both the other visitors and later the occupants of the place….
It’s a RH (reverse harem) read so be aware it’s got lots of spice and in parts it’s an instant love thing.
I liked the idea of a little mystery thrown into the story, it’s not just a group of supernaturals getting the girl.
I liked the premise of humans being sent an invite because they could be on the cusp of falling/walking down the wrong path, and a visit to the manor may/may not put them back on the right path.
The idea of twins being there for each other until the right woman comes along to reunite them appealed to me (one is a demon, one is a ghost)
It’s a relatively quick read, but it might also be the fact it’s such a good book that I couldn’t put it down until I had read the whole thing!
