Book & Trailer Showcase Tours review: Locked by S.V. Richard

I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in. - Virginia Woolf

together with her friends Jen, Todd and Wes, Tristan drives all the way to her old homestead in the middle of nowhere to find some documents. once they enter the house and search for them, each one gets locked up and there seems to be no way out. 
author S.V. Richard's short story is a creepy fast read with thrills and chills thrown in. 
the characters are well fleshed out especially Todd and Jen. they are ordinary people caught up in a bizarre series of events that gets them trapped inside the house. 
i like the way the story progressed and how the author managed to raise and pique my curiosity. questions just kept piling up as i read along. i was surprised at the conclusion though and did a double take. it made sense later when i learned that there was a sequel because there appears to be a lot more behind the story, the characters and its ending. 
i wish i knew already how everything turns out but i guess i would have to wait for Locked II to find out.

*Locked is available from the publisher Wild Child Publishing and at Amazon. 

my personal rating is:

Locked contains material not suitable for younger readers 13 and under.
