Tingling with tremendous atmosphere, Victoria M. Adams’ The House at the End of the Sea sees a pair of siblings uncover eerie family secrets in the wake of their mother’s death.   

Saffi and her little bother Milo are struggling with losing their mum, and terribly unhappy when their dad uproots them from their London home to live with their grandparents in their B&B by the sea. But soon after arriving, they notice all manner of strange things in the house — the sound of guests who aren’t apparently there, walls that change colour, and a mysterious face in a mirror.   

After finding an ally and friend in local boy Birdy, Saffi uncovers secrets related to her ancestor, Sir Henry — a man who went to India to make his fortune and “did a bad thing to get it”. When the bad thing comes to light and Saffi realises it still has an eerie hold over her family, she must dig deep to find the courage to snap the spell.  

Alongside being a thoroughly menacing mystery that throngs with fairy folklore and the repercussions of an ancestral pact, The House at the End of the Sea is also cleverly multi- layered as it explores grief, dual-heritage identity and colonialism through the lens of an atmospheric story.
