And The Trees Crept In:
When Silla and her little sister Nori arrive soaked and broken on the doorstep of their aunt’s isolated manor house, they have nothing to lose. But when the walls begin to seep and rot, and aunty Cath goes crazy, Silla knows there is something terribly wrong with La Baume. Then one day the trees are closer than they were the day before, inching nearer, bringing with them a thing that is more monster than man. And when Nori starts playing with that eyeless thing in the bowls of the manor at night, and a boy steps out of the woods with a hidden agenda, Silla knows that the “nothing” she had to lose is worth everything. A spiral down into the heart of a familial legacy of darkness leads Silla to a chilling discovery.
Chillingly surreal and filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, And the Trees Crept In is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.
