From the critically acclaimed author of Hekla’s Children comes a dark and haunting tale of our world and the next.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

James Brogden does it again! He is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read the Hollow Tree and was perfectly creeped out and now this book…

He never disappoints. Master of plotting and sub-plotting, fast-paced tension and creep factors right from the beginning. I mean look at the tag line:

Excellently flawed characters developed to perfection. Some write… he creates.

Buy his books! You won’t be disappointed.
