Nunny & Cecil: A Tale of Terror

Gaila Swindell. CreateSpace, $12.95 paper (312p) ISBN 978-1-4781-7692-3
Recently divorced psychology professor Denise Miller along with her two young children, Amy and Adam relocate to Pennsylvania's Amish country, moving into the farmhouse where Denise spent her childhood. In preparation for Denise's family, her father childproofs the house, removing piles of bones buried in the basement—a disturbance that unleashes the evil spirits of Nunny and Cecil, half-wolf, half-human brothers born at the farmhouse in the late 1800s. Nunny and Cecil befriend eight-year-old Adam and set in motion a crude plot to murder Denise, her parents, and Amy. Although Swindell offers up chills and thrills, the book's choppy narrative, stilted dialogue, and horror clichés detract from the narrative. While a series of small scares sets up a truly suspenseful and, indeed, terrifying finale, the book's outlandish premise may be too much for some readers to overlook.
