The Dead of Winter by Christ Priestley!
After Michael's parents die, he is invited to stay with his guardian in a desolate country house. He begins to suspect something is not quite right on the day he arrives when he spots a mysterious woman out in the frozen mists. But little can prepare him for the solitude of the house itself. His guardian is rarely seen, and there's a malevolent force lurking in an old hallway mirror. As the chilling suspense builds, Michael realizes that the house and its grounds harbor many more secrets-both dead and alive.
First off, I do like a horror novel and second, the main character is Michael. It's as if I'm in the story myself. >.>
I might have to check this one out for some light reading but hopefully it's good. If anyone has read it or wants to read it, leave some comments down below. =D
