Nestled in the heart of the Berkshires lies Glenwood, Massachusetts–the perfect picture of suburbia. But when the children of this affluent town begin vanishing one by one, baffling local and federal authorities alike, Glenwood becomes anything but a utopia.
Built upon the ruins of a lost colony, Glenwood is home to a long-forgotten secret, and when three strangers are lured into the midnight woods by the phantom of a Puritan boy, they discover the truth of the town’s dark past and must face a vision of its bloody future.
Together, this unlikely trio–Jay, an alcoholic school teacher, Tim, a wise-cracking new kid in town, and Sarah, a nine-year-old with a host of imaginary friends–must somehow find a way to rescue the town from an ancient demon and its legion of human slaves. But in order for them to succeed, Jay must first conquer his own inner demons.
Wow! What a ride! This book is just brilliant, from beginning to end the pace never lets up
The Characters were well written and believable, from the Alcoholic Jay, to Tim, the teenager with a loud mouth who doesn’t fit in.
This is a horror story in the true sense of the word and you are never sure who will turn out to be controlled by the demon!
This book as so gripping that I read it in less than 8 hours, I just could not put it down. I needed to get to the end to find out if and how they could defeat the creature.
At the end of the book, my heart was racing and the relief at the end was so real that I had tears in my eyes.
One of the best horror books I have read.
I gave this 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.
