    One thought on “The Heirloom”

    1. Wow, what an amazing horror story, it had my on the edge of my seat chewing my nails, I highly recommend it :)

    2. Again, not the kind of book I would normally read but somehow I acquired it so I thought I'd give it a go. I found it is so well written I really enjoyed it. It’s about an antique dealer who acquires a carved mahogany chair with serpents heads and people falling to hell on it, but little does he know it is a gateway for the devil to reach our world. Strange goings on begin happening and as he tries to get rid of the chair it keep returning and things get really strange and evil as the plot goe [...]

    3. Written as Thomas Luke back in the 80's. A pretty straight forward light horror tale. Not as intense and gory as his other works but worth a read especially for Masterton fans.

    4. This is an early Masterton horror. I have to say that this book didn't pull me in as much as many of his others have done. Not a bad book but not one of his best.Back Cover Blurb:Antique specialist, Rick Dellatolla, knew a good deal when he saw one.

The moment Rick buys the chair though, his family is plagued by a chain of terrifying and ultimately life-threatening eventsThe premise captured my interest from the get-go and the execution was pretty decent, j [...]

    6. "The shit escalated quickly"!! Comment en arrive-t-on d'un fauteuil infernal qui ne veut pas quitter votre demeure à un missile sur le point d'être tiré sur un gratte ciel en plein centre ville risquant de tuer des centaines de personnes? C'est là toute la maestria de Graham Masterton qui peut vous faire avaler n'importe quoi sans que vous ne trouviez rien à y redire. Le trône de satan est l'un des exemples du savoir faire en béton de cet auteur: narration fluide, atmosphère tirée au co [...]

    7. This is gripping story. Everytime they keep on trying to get rid of the heirloom it keeps coming back. They throw it over a cliff, but when they arrive home it's back again. Masterton at his best

    8. Celui-ci m'a moins marquée que les autres Masterton que j'ai lus, pourtant je me souviens avoir passé un bon moment.
