This book I got at BEA and it is going to be the first book I read from that pile of books. I liked this authors first book but not a huge fan of her writing style, though after actually looking at the book I think it just doesn’t do so well in ebook form as it does in print. (Journal entries, emails, notes, etc) So I am excited to try her newest one.
A spine-chilling psychological thriller from stunning YA talent and author of THE DEAD HOUSE, Dawn Kurtagich.
When Silla and her little sister, Nori, escape London and their abusive father, Aunt Cath’s country house feels like a safe haven. Leaving the smog and fear behind, the girls have the love and freedom they never had in their violent home. But slowly, ever so slowly, things begin to unravel.
Aunt Cath locks herself in the attic and spends day and night pacing; every day the surrounding forest inches slowly towards the house; a mysterious boy appears from the enclosing wood offering friendship, and Nori claims that a man watches them from the dark forest. A man with no eyes who creeps ever closer. . .
Psychologically sinister and creepily atmospheric, Dawn’s second YA title is sure to grip fans of Stephen King, Kendare Blake and James Dawson.
This comes from page 76 of the ARC, so it could change.
Once upon a time, when I was three, Mom told a whispered bed time story about a manor lost in the woods, where a crazy old lady lived in an enchanted place. A place that was full of magic, surrounded by enchanted woodland, and where things out of the ordinary happened.
This is a paragraph in a journal entry or at least I am guessing as it looks like a journal entry. 🙂
I hope this book is as creepy and weird as Dead House was! 🙂
Come on, go ahead, tease me! 🙂
