THE SHADOW OF A SHADOW
HE’LL EAT YOUR HEART, EAT YOUR EYES,
DEVOUR YOUR SOUL, THEN YOUR LIES,
HE’LL MAKE YOU SCREAM, MAKE YOU CRY,
AND WON’T LET UP UNTIL YOU DIE…
After her mother’s funeral, thirty-two-year-old Catherine Hall goes to stay at her Aunt Lyrica’s B&B in Whitby, a place she used to visit often as a child. She thinks some sea air and time spent with her mother’s eccentric sister is just what she needs.
Catherine’s past is marred by a terrible secret, however. A secret shrouded in folklore. And it’s not long till Catherine finds herself immersed in a hellish nightmare in which a familiar dark presence unveils itself and preys on her every fear.
Memories of Aunt Lyrica’s daughter, the popular and outgoing teenage-runaway Calanthe Black, come crashing back, and Catherine realises she must piece together the terrifying truth of what really happened to her cousin in the summer of 2003.
Because when Catherine’s teenage sister, Summer, the family’s blue-eyed girl, unexpectedly turns up at the B&B, Catherine – now haunted by ghostly visions – can’t help but wonder: is history about to repeat itself?
SULLIVAN CARTER SERIES | BOOK ONE
THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE DARK…
This standalone coming of age tale, set in an ex-mining village in the northeast of England in the mid-90s, blends Norse mythology and the occult.
‘When 13-year-old Sullivan Carter and his younger brother, Colton, are forced to hide from school bullies in the cundy (a water conduit in Castle Eden Dene), they are attacked by a terrifying creature which goes on to haunt their dreams.
Rumour has it that some older teens have been performing strange rituals at the cundy. As such, Sullivan is convinced that he and Colton are now being hunted by an ancient creature that’s been unleashed from its dark lair. A creature that’s been lurking since the time Scula the Danish Viking warlord ruled the area in the 900s.
When Colton begins to hear voices which draw him back to the cundy, he tells Sullivan he believes one of them belongs to their dead mother.
Sullivan must reach beyond his own profound grief in order to defend Colton and himself against the wily creature. Does he have what it takes to defeat it? Or will he need to sacrifice himself in order to save his little brother?’
