Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time I was a big fan of Summer of Night and was excited to read A Winter Haunting. However, I found this book really disappointing. It's as if Simmons had too many ideas for this novel and didn't know how to effectively tie them all together, and as a result the novel just isn't scary at all. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another fine sequel. I'm new to Dan Simmons and the first two exposures for me were marathon reading sessions.
