The Elementals by Michael McDowell

"The Elementals" is a Southern Gothic horror novel that delves into the eerie and mysterious world of two old, aristocratic families, the McCrays and the Savages, who share a haunting past intertwined with two secluded Victorian houses on the Alabama Gulf Coast. The story unfolds as the families gather for a funeral, only to be drawn into a chilling confrontation with malevolent forces that reside in the third, abandoned house—known as the third house—where the elementals, sinister entities that are not quite ghosts, lurk. As the oppressive summer heat intensifies, so does the terror, revealing dark family secrets and testing the bonds of kinship as the characters struggle to contend with the supernatural threat.
