    1. Heroes Never Give UpJude disobeyed orders to save lives, but lost his leg in the process. As an unsung hero, he wants to be whole again. When he hears of the miracles to be had at Hewhay Hall, he goes in search of the magical place, but winds up a prisoner along with a host of other unsung heroes. Jude's courage never dims, though the odds seem impossible in this supernatural tale. While there are terrifying moments, there are tender ones, too. Well worth reading!

    2. Hewhay Hall is a charming novella, one for a single sitting. It's the story of Jude, whose desperation to feel whole again after losing a leg while trying to rescue a family from an imminent bomb blast, leads him to seek out the elusive and mythical Hewhay Hall. I shan't say too much about Hewhay Hall and who it is for, because it will spoil some of the revelations in the story but it has fallen into bad hands and bad ways. Can our hero rescue himself from his dire circumstances or the other cap [...]

    3. When I first got Hewhay Hall for the blog tour, I wasn't sure what to expect, mainly because I've never really read books in this genre: adult-ish, with a tinge of horror (call me a wuss, but oh well). Anyway, I could say that I was in for a small surprise, because this book was creepy. And I don't usually get creeped out easily. So Susan Roebuck definitely did a good job with the horror, because even though I slept soundly, the nightmares and everything that happened in Hewhay Hall made my skin [...]

    4. Hewhay Hall by Susan Roebuck:This dark fantasy/horror novel tells the story of Jude, a firefighter who has lost his leg in a courageous act. His fall into a dark house of horrors, prompted by his wish for a new leg, is well-plotted and very creepy. I found Verity Slater (the baddie) to be a great projection of every man (or woman’s) fantasies, and what we would give up in order to satisfy them. Jude and Tess lived a very normal life in London before Jude lost his leg, and it is this image that [...]

    5. The author describes Hewhay Hall as a dark fantasy and here I would immediately disagree.While the ending is bittersweet, the core of the story is one of courage and love that ultimately celebrates truth and justice.The central character is a British fireman Jude who has been horribly injured in a bomb-blast during an emergency response situation. The incident has left him an unemployed amputee who struggles to reassess his role as able-bodied man, bread-winner and husband. Not surprisingly this [...]

    6. Hope. It’s such a simple word. Yet it’s what drives most of us. Hope for a brighter future. Hope for wealth, happiness, health. So when firefighter Jude Elliot loses a leg due to a bomb explosion, he has a hard time adjusting and suffers from traumatic stress disorder. But hope flairs anew in Jude as he discovers there is a place called Hewhay Hall – a place with innovative medicine and refined rehabilitation. It might just be able to turn Jude’s life around. So begins Jude’s quest to [...]

    7. Wowat's my first impression after finishing story. I wasn't quite sure what to expect coming into this--it sounded interesting, for sure, but after reading, I really don't think the blurb does this book any justice. This is dark and gritty, with one foot planted in a very sobering, real world, while the other rests in the darkest corners of the imagination. Jude, a firefighter who is at the lowest point in his life following the loss of his leg in a horrific accident, goes off in search of hope, [...]

    8. Susan Roebuck's Hewhay Hall is brilliantly written. Although this is not typically my genre of choice, I could not put this book down. I was entranced from the first chapter. The main characters are incredibly well written and believable. Jude, Tess and Leah had my heart and brain fully engaged in their story. By times the hair was standing up on the back of my neck and by times my heart was weeping this story has something for everyone. The plot takes some unanticipated twists that will keep yo [...]

    9. Hewhay Hall is a brilliant read. Compelling, scary and packed full of atmosphere. Jude, Tess and Leah - the main characters - work well. They're real and credible and the relationship rings true, with just the right amount of conflict. The suspense and build up of terror is excellent and I stayed up rather later than I should as I couldn't put it down. Clever ending too, which I am not revealing. This is also a highly original plot and written in such a visual way, it demands a film! In short - [...]

    10. Full Review: thetbrpile.weebly/1/post/2This was a premise with a lot of potential but, unfortunately, much of that potential failed to materialize. The lead character never quite gels and it is very difficult to share any sympathy for him even after the reader has gotten to know him a little better. The events that befall him, as he searches for Hewhay Hall never seem very credible and when you meet his wife and daughter, you can kind of see why his marriage is failing because, as supporting cha [...]

    11. I loved this story with it's supernatural twists and turns. Jude Elliot is a hero. A firefighter who lost his leg saving lives. Jude doesn't feel like a hero, in fact just the opposite. he feels like he has let people down and that his handicap is ruining his families life. Jude and his wife Tess are raising Tess' seventeen year old sister Leah. When Jude meets a man named Joe who promises him a way to fix his missing leg, Jude is ecstatic and headed for the mysterious Hewhay hall, only to find [...]

    12. I'll admit to approaching this book with some trepidation. The author's previous - and debut - novel was a male/male romance set in cowboy country. How would she handle a dark supernatural tale? The answer is: pretty damned well. Roebuck's writing style is different from my own but I have to say that in parts my skin crawled and that little icy bicycle ran down my spine. That was a pleasant surprise. We get some good characters, too. The barmy local medium is just like someone I know. And in tru [...]
