The Labyrinth House by Mark Rollins

**I received this book from the author's publisher in exchange for my honest review**
4/5 Stars
Synopsis per Goodreads:
What would you do if you entered a house that you couldn’t leave?

Bradley Jensen, a young architect on his honeymoon, finds himself facing this very question when he finds a door embedded in a tree on a nature hike with his new wife. On the other side of the door is a mansion, and in the mansion are other people: a man from the 70’s, a former slave, and a young woman from the time of the Salem Witch Trials. They, like Bradley, can’t escape. They can’t open the door that leads to the exit; they can’t break down the walls.

There’s one other person in the mansion, a man none of the others like to talk about. He’s like them, plucked out of the world and placed here in a mansion beyond time. Except he’s dangerous. Deadly. In order to figure out the mystery of his current situation and—hopefully—make it back to his wife, Bradley is going to have to confront this man, as well as something far more dangerous:

The Labyrinth House itself

This book sounds so AWESOME from the synopsis right?  I thought so too, I couldn't wait to read it.  Once I started, I couldn't stop reading it, I read it in one sitting.  I loved it!
The imagination of the author is awesome.  There were a lot of thought into the house, you could tell.  All the rooms and the puzzles, and the process that went into the making of this book.  I was really impressed.  It was well written, there was great character buildup, world building was awesome.  And it was easy to read.
I wasn't a fan of the ending, if you like endings that are happily ever after and all wrapped up in a neat little bow, this isn't one of those, it was one of the types of endings that have you scratching your head like..hmm..  what next?  and sitting there like..woah, I think I just got mind blown?  cause what just happened??  but even though I wasn't a fan of it, cause I like answers, the ending was quite awesome and fit well with the contents of the story.  I'm dying to know what happens to him going forward.  LOL but I cant see a sequel happening, it's one of those cliffhanger endings that ends with your imagination.
Great book. Thanks to the publisher for allowing me to read it and review it!
