SUMMARY ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Richard Estep Ccused of witchcraft in the 16th century When Vanessa Mitchell moved into the Cage she had no idea that a paranormal nightmare was waiting for her From her first day living there Vanessa saw apparitions walk through her room heard ghostly growls and was even slapped and pushed by invisible hands After three years. Book Review originally published here rating 35 starsIn Spirits of the Cage investigator Richard Estep and his team of US and UK based investigators heads off for a stay at The Cage a haunted medieval prison now turned into a cottage Back in the 1500s The Cage had been used to imprison those accused of witchcraft who later met a grisly fate being killed often by hangingNevertheless single mother Vanessa Mitchell bought the cottage several years ago First she lived in it with a friend and even during those times they witnessed several paranormal events like objects moving on their own a death certificate of the previous owner showing up out of nowhere apparitions even shadow people and ghostly growls But when Vanessa’s friend moved out leaving her alone in the house things got progressively worse And when Vanessa became pregnant she basically barricaded herself in a single room in the house refusing to go anywhere else Things got even worse when her child was bornPart of the book is told from Vanessa’s POV through flashbacks The other parts involve the investigation carried out by Richard Estep and his team Through various methods one scientifically accurate than the other from Ouija boards to letting the ghosts move the body of one of the investigators over the course of several days the team investigates the haunting No real conclusions are given though and by the end we don’t know much about the spirits living in The CageI liked reading about the investigation the different methods they used and I also enjoyed Vanessa’s story about what she went through Some of the events seemed a little over the top but since it apparently happened to lots of people I’m willing to give the story the benefit of the doubt However I would’ve liked to read historical research about The Cage and it surprised me neither Vanessa nor the investigators did a lot of historical research prior to entering The Cage or Vanessa during the time she was thereThe writing was a bit sloppy at times but I didn’t mind that much The book was entertaining and some parts were even scary – the part about the old woman looking like a manneuin staring out of the top window at passersby in vehicles that part really terrified me I get goosebumps even thinking about it

Read this in a few hours While I'm skeptical of certain techniues dowsing rods Ouija boards anything easily manipulated by human touch I still enjoyed this book overall This is one of the only paranormal books that has spooked me so far maybe because it was so in depth about one location and the activity was so consistent I'd love to know of the history of the Cage but I suppose much has been lost to timeMy only real uestion is why the owner stayed so long especially when her mother lived only two minutes away I couldn't have lived there as long as she did even with roommates And I absolutely wouldn't have been able to bring a newborn into that place I'd have been moving out the minute I found out I was pregnantFar too much use of the 'bygone' eraage
