"THE DEAD HOUSE is a seamless blend of the supernatural and the psychological. Creepy, compelling, and compulsively readable."—Victoria Schwab, author of The Archived and Vicious
"Kurtagich weaves a terrifying and mind-bending tale reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft. This is one of the best horror debuts I've read in a long time!"—J.R. Johansson, author of Cut Me Free and The Night Walker series
"Not for the faint of heart, this is a gory and grimly compelling story, made more so by the novel's visual elements."—Booklist
"This creepy boarding school novel meshes real world issues with a paranormal mystery in a fun but scary debut...

A worth addition to high school horror collections."—School Library Journal
"Told through a retrospective collection of found evidence surrounding the deaths of several students in a boarding school fire, Kurtagich's debut novel is deeply disturbing and fraught with emotion."
