High-flying trader Dean Harrison has it all – the London penthouse apartment; the fast car; the beautiful wife. But when the threads of Dean’s life start to unravel, they do so with alarming speed.

Following the advice of a frail stranger, Dean sets off for Welnetham Hall Hotel and is plunged into the mysterious world of Room 119 – a world where nothing makes sense. How does everyone in the hotel know his name? Why does he travel there on a train line that shut down over fifty years ago? And who is the sinister man in black who pursues him wherever he goes?

As he gradually pieces together the puzzle of Welnetham Hall, Dean is forced to re-evaluate his life and realises that nothing is more important to him than his wife and daughter. Desperate to get back to them, he vows he would lay down his life for the people he loves.

It’s a promise he may have to keep.


36521607Room 119, so mysterious and dark, twisted story of Dean and his perfect life turning into nothingness. Story of false sense of security and how one little moment can turn your life upside down, how much will and strength it takes to get your life back.

Dean has it all, beautiful house, loving family, job he enjoys and is good at. Everything is well in his life until one moment when one decision, one moment changes everything. When his perfect life starts crashing down life house of cards and he finds himself looking and evaluating disaster that just happened. At time when Dean doesn’t believe he can get his happy life ever back, stranger offers him advice by recommending him a Room 119, where he will get all help he needs to get back on the track. And that’s were it all starts, crazy events, mysterious people, realization of what Dean once had and what he needs to do and learn before he gets it all back.

Story flows nicely, sometimes in the slower pace throughout the first half of the book, which works very well with plot. There is a lot of information reader needs to absorb and maybe even find a way to understand them. Pace totally changes after the first half and then its just very fast read, full of crazy events that might not make sense but all threads will connect at the end. Just hold on there, I promise all pieces of jigsaw will fit together perfectly.

I really enjoyed this book, the plot was very interesting, still can’t tell how did author came up with it, very twisted but all worked well at the end. I liked main character Dean, he was just a man who realized too late what he had, regretted some decisions he has made and hopes for the second chance. Very much like any person, who has done something and want to take it back. It was very easy to feel connected to the character.

Although Dean’s character was well developed, some other characters where missing depth to them for me, I would probably like to feel more connected to their personality or just know a bit more of their characteristics. I also felt like book had a lot of repetition happening and would need a little bit more work in that sense, I’m not a writer so don’t really want to go to it too much, but that would make this book 5 stars for me.

All in all this book is definitely worth reading and I will recommend it to others as it’s definitely a ride you won’t expect and it will take you places you have never visited.

  1. this sounds super intriguing!
    based on the cover it’s set in the past… the blurb doesn’t mention the time period though. does this have time travelling or what is the time setting?
