Moving In (Moving In series #1) By Ron Ripley

“Iron…and…salt,” whispers the old man. The dead old man. “Hurry or it will be too late…”
To escape the stress of living in the city and the anxiety of his high pressure job, Brian Roy moves his family to the country. His wife loves the easy living, but Brian hates it…especially when weird things start happening in the house. When he discovers a dead body in the woods and a burial ground in his basement, Brian could never imagine the shocking history of the house or its former occupants that comes to light.

As his life starts to unravel, Brian isn’t so sure living in the country is going to be the oasis of peace he and his wife expected. Lately, his home has become a haunting den of hell.

I’m pretty sure I’ve been reading Ripley’s books out of order, series-wise at least. In the Moving In series, we are introduced to Brian in Jenny (who also appear in the Berkley street series).

This is a great start to this set of books. There are tons of ghosts and we learn how Brian and Jenny become participants in the ghost world. Since I’ve been reading out of order, it was cool to find out the back stories on characters I didn’t realize had roots in other series. Seeing their progress as they learn to navigate this world was quite interesting. This book has several mean ghosts and we are introduced to a bunch of characters we see more of in later books as well as other series.

 

As with the Berkley series books, once I got started I couldn’t stop reading. I’ve had several late nights of reading as I’ve fallen in love with this author’s storytelling. I will say there are more errors and things that weren’t present in later series, but in my opinion, that just means he is growing as an author or he’s gotten a better editor since then.

 

Overall, I highly recommend the Moving In series because one of the things I’ve loved is Ripley’s books don’t follow a set pattern. Something I’ve noticed in a lot of series is the author follows what seems like a mad-libs version of an outline. This makes their books predictable. I don’t think this author does that and it makes for a series of books that I don’t get bored with.

About Ron Ripley

Ron Ripley is a husband and father surviving in New England, a place which seems to be getting colder every day. He grew up across from a disturbingly large cemetery where he managed to scare himself every night before going to bed. Mostly because of the red lights that people put in front of the headstones. Those things are just plain creepy to a kid.

Ron enjoys writing horror, military history and driving through the small towns of New England with his family, collecting books and giving impromptu lectures on military history to his family, who enjoy ignoring him during those dreadful times.
