The great wooden door has remained shut and locked ever since. But now, in the present day, evil is stirring once more. Sent to live with new foster parents in Briarwych, Kerry and Mark soon set about exploring the village. When they're warned to stay away from the church, they naturally decide to go and take a closer look.

    A DARK READ WITH UNEXPECTED TWISTS This novel was even better than book 1. It was scary in parts, and in the beginning the fate of one of the characters was a big surprise. I enjoyed every page, and couldn’t put it down. The plot of book 2 was similar to that of book 1—-the evil that resided in Briarwych Church. There was that continuity between the 2 novels, but this novel was very different than the prior novel. I found that to be a pleasant surprise.

The plot of book 2 was similar to that of book 1—-the evil that resided in Briarwych Church. There was that continuity between the 2 novels, but this novel was very different than the prior novel. I found that to be a pleasant surprise. Some 2 & 3 part books are so identical to the prior book(s), I can’t tell where book 1 ended & the next began. It’s like reading the same novel as the one before. That’s not the case with this trilogy. Book 2 is set over 70 years after book 1. All of the characters are different than those in book 1, but the evil presence is still in the church. We learn more about it, and how it’s developed & grown through the 70 years.I’ve read several of Amy Cross’s novels and enjoyed them all. I will say that there were a number of typos & minor editing errors, small things, but altogether they were a bit distracting. I would have liked to have read a short summary of what Mark was doing between his rescue at the airfield when he was 15 and his return to Briarwych Church when he was 20. But, nevertheless, this was a very good novel. I highly recommend it to those readers who enjoy “haunted house” novels. Ms. Cross is one of my favorite authors. You can’t go wrong with an Amy Cross novel! I’ll be reading book 3 next.

    Demon! This second book of the trilogy answered my questions about Lizzy and Father L, while at the same time gave me a whole other story. While keeping true to the vine of the church. I enjoyed this book immensely! Poor, unfortunate Kelly came through for Mark in the end. That's what I chose to believe anyway. Others can judge for themselves. And could you believe that so-called man of the cloth!! Well, in my humble opinion, Mark was my reluctant hero. The demon was icing on the cake in a ghost Demon!

    Absolutely spellbinding Any Cross has done it again, I do enjoy her books. She can grab you right off and not loose your interest. This book can stand on it's own, but you'll miss out if you don't read the other two. May you enjoy the hauntingly good reading of the Supernatural. 💘👈🌹⛄❄ Absolutely spellbinding Any Cross has done it again, I do enjoy her books. She can grab you right off and not loose your interest.

    Part of a series Briarwych still lives in fear of their abandoned church . Mark, a new teenager in town meets a stranger after Mark's misadventure with the church. The man promises to get rid of the evil in the church. I like the plot. There are scary scenes. The plot has twists I will read the last book in the series.

    As a sequel, the 2nd in the series, this was a fun read. By turns scary, unbelievable, back to scary, I enjoyed it. I've looked ahead to a description of part 3, and it predates book 1. Now I have to continue to see how it all began. There's a rather nasty presence in the church. A priest and a young boy tackle the job of dislodging it. But things are not all as they seem.

    The second book in the Briarwych Trilogy is told from two different character's perspectives. More intense and fast paced than the first one and scarier than the first, it was a great read. I listened to the audio book. The second book in the Briarwych Trilogy is told from two different character's perspectives.

    Scary and Awesome in equal measure!! Brilliant! Read in the daylight, truly nerve-wracking and just started book three to go back in time and find out the beginning of it all! Thank you, Amy, for a superb series trio!! :) x

    I enjoyed this book. So far, I have fully enjoyed this series. I enjoyed the characters, the paranormal, the storyline ties in to the first book. Like life, ignoring your demons isn't a good idea. I enjoyed this book. So far, I have fully enjoyed this series. I enjoyed the characters, the paranormal, the storyline ties in to the first book.

    This is my third Cross and I she is has so much output I keep waiting for something to feel half finished or rushed and I still haven't felt that at all. This sequel follows the first, but doesn't just regurgitate the same story. Well written and it takes the world to the next step.

    A really good read! This sequel was something of an improvement on the original story, the writing more together I think. It was a real page turner of a book. Highly original and I really could not have predicted how it ended.

    Another good read about the haunted village church, where the villagers hide from the truth. Mainly fast-paced, sometimes a little slow, this time it's two young people who become embroiled in the horror. It was interesting psychologically to see how people react to danger, flight or fight...or just hide and deny. Some good characters and a mysterious plot - still to be revealed in full. Worth reading. Another good read about the haunted village church, where the villagers hide from the truth.

    Another well written, enjoyable book by Amy Cross. An interesting jump in time setting for this 2nd book of this trilogy. Was a good read again, now on to the final book in the set.

    I really enjoy Cross’ work overall and this one is not a full exception. One thing I usually like in particular work is that she doesn’t make her characters disbelieving of paranormal happenings in the plot so we don’t have to tire through watching a character finally accept the reality. This one didn’t go down quite like that, however. Since the main character is pretty skeptic until the very end which is understandable but based on some of the other plot points, comes off frustrating at times.

But, she kept me turning the pages still. While I enjoyed some of the curveballs that aren’t consistent with Cross’ other works, overall this one was less enticing from being scary as it was just interesting. The characters were generally ok but really, the Briarwych trilogy is a bit more frustrating than Cross’ other works I have had the pleasure of reading so far.
