Review by: Darcia Helle on March 21, 2013 :
Haunted is exactly what you'll be after reading this book. The theme ran like an undercurrent in my brain for days.

Nigel has an explosive temper causing him, in a moment of rage, to act in a way that changes his life forever. Given the type of person he is, Nigel shouldn't be particularly likable. Yet, somehow his character elicits sympathy. Through Nigel's life, we see the destruction caused by one moment in time. His mind is shattered, dark and desolate, and we, the reader, are right there with him.

This is Maria Savva's darkest writing and, I have to say, my favorite. (Yes, I love the dark side!) There is no blood and gore piling up on each page. The torment here is purely psychological, which is even more frightening.

Life Controlled by his Murderous Past

Author Maria Savva’s enviable skill at drawing her readers in from the onset and keeping the suspense alive on every page is unmistakably apparent with her latest book‘Haunted’.

This nail-biting story revolves around her central character, Nigel Price. As a youngster Nigel suffered anger issues, which became worse as the years passed. Fast-forward to an evening in his thirties when he is overpowered by a fit of road rage on a narrow cliff-top road. Nigel Price commits the unthinkable, murder. Riddled with guilt his life is no longer his own. As readers we are taken inside Nigel’s mind living as a tormented soul uncertain of reality.

I highly recommend ‘Haunted’ to readers who enjoy edge-of-your-seat thrillers with a paranormal twist.

Haunted (maria Savva)

Nigel Price is an ordinary man. He leads an average life until one eventful night. It changed the course of his life. Try as he may he just can not let go of that night, and his past keeps coming back to haunt him.

Every day, every waking hour he is constantly reminded of this. His restless sleepless nights, the regret and quilt just eat away at his soul. Soon he is not sure what is real and what is not. Is he becoming paranoid, or are things just not as they seem.

A fantastic all night read. Maria Savva writes with passion and detail, I felt as if I were inside Nigels mind. Filled with some twists, turns, suspense and paranormal thrills. I highly recommend to suspense/thriller/paranormal lovers.

Review by: J. Michael Radcliffe on March 20, 2013 :
'Haunted' by Maria Savva is the chilling story of a man's descent into madness. A dark and emotional tale, it follows Nigel Price as he tries to outrun the demons of his past.

It shows how one fleeting moment can change the course of a life. As Nigel struggles to forget what happened that dark and rainy night, his mind won't let him escape. Ms. Savva does an exceptional job of showing Nigel's interactions with those around him, and how those relationships begin to fray and deteriorate, until he is left seemingly alone - except for one person. It is this last remaining relationship, this final twist, that leaves the reader wondering, was it really all just in Nigel's mind, or was this vengeance from beyond the grave?

This was a dark and emotional read - and not normally a genre I frequent - but this was exceedingly well done. I give this novel five stars, and would gladly recommend to others.

Review by: Lana Voynich on March 20, 2013 :
I normally don't read this genre of book, so for that reason, I wasn't comfortable giving it 5 stars. (I don't know how it really compares to other in the same classification.)

However, I'm glad I stepped out of my normal comfort zone to read Ms. Savva's novel. The characters were well-developed and believable, and I could actually visualize the things Nigel saw and experienced. I generally have a hard time visualizing things, so I consider Ms. Savva's ability to produce images in my mind to be astounding. It's been a few months since I read the book, and I still can see certain scenes as they played out.

I will definitely read more of Ms. Savva's novels in the future.
