Brimstone by Tamara Thorne

Family Secrets
The Brimstone Grand Hotel, owned by reclusive former movie star, Delilah Devine, looms high on Hospital Hill, harboring long-buried family secrets that whisper of unimaginable horrors. Horrors that will echo down through generations. 

Twisted History
When Delilah’s granddaughter, Holly Tremayne, who has seen ghosts for most of her eleven years, first comes to live in the Brimstone Grand in the summer of 1968, she’s delighted by its majestic western beauty - and its chilling history. But as she settles in, making friends and enemies alike, the nightmares begin. 

Terror in the Night
Within the walls of the Brimstone Grand, the past has come back to life, and Holly and Delilah are faced with an ancient familial evil that rages just below the old hotel’s serene facade. An evil that won’t rest until it possesses Holly - body, mind, and soul.

Tamara Thorne has yet to disappoint me. Brimstone, like every other book of hers, has left me in awe of her ability to develop a story that is so unlike anything else I’ve read. At the end of her books, while I’m never really ready to stop reading, I still feel as though the story is complete and I’m satisfied that everything I wanted to know has been revealed. I love that her books are a bit longer than many I come across lately.


Thorne has this ability to write the worst possible characters imaginable. Meeks is a vile, disgusting excuse for a human being. The villains in her books have no redeeming qualities, and Meeks fits that description perfectly. I also can’t stand Holly’s mother, Cherry. She’s just a horrible person.


Holly’s interactions with both the living and the dead are enjoyable or terrifying depending on the situation. I can understand her Grandmother’s apprehension when it comes to Holly as the girl is easy to like, but with Delilah’s history with her own daughter, I can imagine being afraid of becoming close to her.

Each book of Thorne’s reads like a movie in my head. I can hear the thunder as I’m reading, I can almost smell the rain as she describes it. The basement of the hospital appears terrifying in my head as it would to Holly. I’m not sure how she does it, but she’s amazing at it.


This is a great book. It truly is. The mystery and suspense, all tied up with a girl who can see ghosts, a ghost cat, and a whole cast of characters you either love or hate are all worth the time it takes to read it.
