FREE shipping on qualifying offers. Book by Hautala, Rick. The novel "Night Stone" was a real surprise for me. My girlfriend read the book when she was only Eleven, and she recalled that it really creeped her out. I laughed at her, swiped the book from her bedroom and found myself reading the nearly six-hundred page book in one sitting. Hautala has a very unique style, which I find to be more satisfying than Stephen King's-not quite as excessive. Anyhow, the story is of a man who moves into the house that his dying grandmother left abandoned, and intended for it to stay that way.

A old house in Maine that was a haven for evil...It gave Beth the creeps. She couldn't believe they were really moving in. If it weren't for the wooden doll she had found in the closet of her new bedroom, she would have been miserable. But the strange hand-carved figure fascinated her, and she senses with a child's instinct that she had to hide it from her parents.
  • This book had potential, but it was another disappointment.

    The actual horror story was disjointed, involving ancient native burial sites, animate (and perhaps sentient....this was never made clear) stones and a creepy wooden doll. How it all ties in is rather unclear.....the author spent more time describing characters crawling around in subterranean tunnels or waiting tables at the local family restaurant. This could have been a good horror novel, if the writer had chosen to......but no.......it was a waste of my time.

    It was also unfortunate that the author chose to have his characters own a horse. If he had done a little research, or maybe just talked to someone who knows something about horses this book would not have been such an epic fail for me. Instead he just assumed that horses act pretty much the same way dogs do, so I had the added agita of bizarre and inexplicable equine behavior.

    This was one of the horror novels I had hopes of really liking. Instead, I am going to go through my to- read list and cut a bunch of similar horror novels loose. In the past I was willing to wade through a dozen snoozers like this in order to find a Long Lankin or a House of Small Shadows but now I just want to read the good stuff.

    Nightstone was not the good stuff.

  • This was actually the first "grown up" book I ever completed cover to cover and I did so back when I was 13. Looking back on it, I was really too young to be reading such a book, but I don't think it did me any noticeable harm. Having tracked down a used copy via Amazon I was able to enjoy the experience again 25 years later and it held up pretty well. The 600+ pages just flew by and I quite enjoyed the mix of pulpy horror and nostalgia. If you look at the cover and think, "That looks like something I'd enjoy," then you probably will.

  • he will be forever my favarite author, even with all the typos. it started out very exciting and just kept getting better and better. i didn't know whether to hurry and finish it or try to make it last !!!

  • Good book. Came faster than anticipated, great shape, and gook was great.

  • A lot of the pages where loose and falling out, had to use a lot of tape on it so I could read it, but it is an old book and I have gotten books from these people before and this is the first one that I had trouble with

I don't really know if I should recommend this look or not ?it was a good book except at the end of the book so I really don't think I should recommend this book because of the ending and just because of the end of the it is surprising book at the end but not a good one let me do this????????????????☠️????????????????

  • That was my reaction during much of this book. Utter confusion. If you're hoping to find an explanation for what the Night Stone is exactly, then you should hope for a sequel.
    The main character, I've already blocked out his name, is a shop teacher who has just moved his wife and 13-year old kid into a new town and a new house that was owned by his grandmother. Now immediately their kid starts to act weird and carry around this wooden doll she found in the house, not that the parents noticed. The dad is too obsessed with digging up these stones sticking up out of the back yard, ala King's The Tommyknockers, and the wife is too obsessed with finding a job to get her out of the house and away from the family. The kid, well she's obsessed with horses, oh and a little on the possessed side with whatever the spirit of that wooden doll is. Don't expect to find that out either. Everything bizarre that happens to the dad, like seeing his daughter fly through the air in her P.J.'s, he convinces himself that it was just a dream. Sure. I've had dreams like that too, but they were almost always chemically induced. The mom simply decides to ignore her experiences. Yeah, that's a great dramatic tool.
    Though there was some intrigue to the story and the haunting, the characters were just so unlikeable that I didn't care. And just for good measure, the writer threw in some vague pedophilic reference in the beginning that had me waiting for the other shoe to drop and being suspect of the dad throughout. H-Whaaa???

  • Hautala has mastered his art in this eerie and intense novel. Not sure what the previous reviewer was reading, I was unable to put this one down. I had no problem understanding the story at all, this was purely a great read. If you love horror, or just love a a book with the ability to grab you and hold you, this book is the one. Even when delving into issues of the para-normal, Hautala keeps a firm grasp on reality and character development, lulling one into the belief that what is happening to the people in the book could happen to you. The writing unnerves, with a palpable doom lurking from page one.
