Barking Madness by Ryan Hill

Barking Madness

Rosetta has nightmares. Vivid nightmares. We open with her in a nightmare. Walking down a path in the forest surrounded by peaceful noises and a bright luminescent moon. Then things take a turn for the worse. A black figure is stalking her. When she is talking to the black figure, a wolf steps onto the path. She takes a step back as it steps towards her. This sets the wolf in motion and she turns and runs. Knowing she won’t outrun it, she throws herself to the ground. She wakes up when the dark figure bites into her neck, sucking her blood and killing her.

Rosetta, her mother, father and sister are moving because of a new job offer her father received. They are moving to a town called Ashwood. When she says something about it being dark her father tells her that the elementary school burned down years ago and a few kids died so they renamed everything, including the town.

They finally make it to their house and Rosetta is impressed. As is her sister, Emily. This new house is WAY bigger than the previous house in Florida. The layout is unique and each of them run up and down the stairs several times before choosing rooms because their previous house had no stairs in it. They were excited for a change.

Things get bad for Rosetta and her classmates quickly.

I liked this story. Rosetta could pass as anyone out in the world today. I am definitely liking the authors writing style and the characters and world building that’s done in this story. The story is set at a steady pace so it doesn’t feel like it’s taking forever to get to the action and the good parts. A great story from beginning to end.
