Madeline Usher is doomed.

She has spent her life fighting fate, and she thought she was succeeding. Until she woke up in a coffin.

Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that almost seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life—revealed through short bursts of memory—has hinged around her desperate plan to escape, to save herself and her brother. Her only chance lies in destroying the house.

In the end, can Madeline keep her own sanity and bring the house down? The Fall is a literary psychological thriller, reimagining Edgar Allan Poe’s classic The Fall of the House of Usher.

I vaguely remember reading "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allan Poe In High School. What I do remember is watching the 1960's House of Usher staring Vincent Price, and being scared and enthralled by this Gothic Tale. I love this story, and all its Gothic yumminess. There is just something scary about that house and the Ushers not being able to leave it! I cannot wait to read The Fall. I've read so many great reviews on Bethany Griffin and her Masque of the Red Death series, so I'm truly excited to check out her brand new young adult Paranormal/Gothic thriller.
