the montague portrait

"It's no secret that I am a fan of Matt Drabble's books. His stories take me back to being a child and discovering my love for horror movies ... Matt is feeding my need for horror through the written word."  - SAGE ADDERLEY

"The Montague Portrait is incredibly attention-grabbing so that pages and time flew by with me barely noticing my surroundings. This novel will definitely delight horror fans"  - READERS FAVORITE

"I am a huge fan of horror and suspense works, be they in writing or film and Drabble does not disappoint. It is a truly creepy story and I suggest that if you enjoy horror, that you also check out Drabble's other works - you'll love them!"  - BOOK FIDELITY
