Full of shimmering prose that describes hideous things, this is a novel about breaking free of others' expectations - whether those expectations are about who you'll love and how, or about your future of servitude to an unspeakable evil. The situation is fantastic, but the feelings are real. This book is really something special.
A lovelorn newcomer, a grief-stricken pariah and a privileged liar intersect on the island of Sawkill Rock, where they become unlikely defenders against an insidious monster that has been preying upon the girls in their community for decades. By the Edgar Award-nominated author of Winterspell. 40,000 first printing. Simultaneous eBook.
