A small group of supernatural refugees flee from the calamities of their past in a desperate attempt to find a safe place. What they discover is an abandoned mansion full of wonder, mystery, and horror, where they try to create a new home—for themselves and others: The Haven Hotel. Safe house to the supernatural, sinister B&B to the mundane world, and packed with secrets for both, it’s a place where dull moments are treasured for their scarcity.
Halfway Home is an urban fantasy story set at a mysterious mansion on a hill, just outside the small town of Bordham, New Hampshire. It features a very large cast, weaving several personal character arcs around a larger story unraveling the truth about the house itself and what happened there–and what must happen now.
It is an enormous story and it can be read several ways, following individual characters, all characters, or jumping straight to specific chapters. Each chapter represents a story arc that is self-contained, but continues to develop the underlying mystery of the house and the stories of its residents.
For a ridiculous amount of information, see this google reference doc for summaries for individual chapters and greatly abbreviated character bios to get you right into the action (because a lot of people have come and gone during this story, and it can be a pain to chase down each character by their individual page).
