I love haunted house books, so as soon as I saw the description for this one I applied to be part of the tour.
The horror builds gradually as members of the Leigh family first see Selena in places where she isn't and their confusion gives way to the realization that something truly dangerous has invaded their home. At the same time as we're learning about the problems in the Leigh household, we're being introduced to ghost hunter Jessica Backman and psychic Eddie Home, who has turned up on her doorstep with a message from her dead father.
One of my pet peeves is parents who don't keep track of their children while they're doing potentially dangerous tasks. So I found the scenes where Selena's image appeared when her parents absolutely knew their daughter was elsewhere especially creepy.
Sinister Entity is a sequel to Forest of Shadows, which I haven't read, but it stands on its own. There's just enough back story for me to understand the characters and decide to add Forest of Shadows to my Amazon wish list.
