A compelling whirlpool of a story that will sweep readers up in…
Durham draws on elements of fantasy and horror to create an exhilarating tale of darkness and intrigue. Eamon, Caroline, and Mark are more than excited to take a trip to the island where Eamon and Caroline’s favorite book ‘Winterset Hollow’ was written. But when the friends arrive at the house on the island, they realize the things are not as they seem on surface. With the darkness at their trail, the trio must do everything in their power to escape the place or risk losing their lives. Durham develops his main storyline on a classic fairy-tale framework of black-and-white morality and magic. There is a slow, exposition-laden buildup, with continuous tension in the background. The expert combination of realistic characters, engrossing storytelling, and taut pacing keep the pages flying. With a decidedly darker edge to the narrative, Durham has built a vividly detailed fairy tale world that is rife with horror-tinged scenes and relentless suspense. Lovers of both dark fantasy and psychological horror will find it impossible to put down.
