Long Lankin | [Lindsey Barraclough]

Long Lankin

When Cora and her little sister, Mimi, are sent to stay with their great-aunt in the isolated village of Bryers Guerdon, they receive a less than warm welcome and are desperate to go back to London. But Auntie Ida’s life was devastated the last time two young girls were at Guerdon Hall, and now her nieces’ arrival has reawakened an evil that has lain in wait for years. A haunting voice in an empty room; a strange, scarred man lurking in the graveyard; mysterious words scrawled on the walls of the abandoned church ... all point to a horrifying truth that has held Bryers Guerdon in its grip for centuries.

Publisher's Summary

When Cora and her little sister, Mimi, are sent to stay with their great-aunt in the isolated village of Bryers Guerdon, they receive a less than warm welcome and are desperate to go back to London. But Auntie Ida’s life was devastated the last time two young girls were at Guerdon Hall, and now her nieces’ arrival has reawakened an evil that has lain in wait for years.

A haunting voice in an empty room; a strange, scarred man lurking in the graveyard; mysterious words scrawled on the walls of the abandoned church ... all point to a horrifying truth that has held Bryers Guerdon in its dark grip for centuries, a truth that Cora, along with Roger and Peter, two young village boys, must uncover - before it’s too late for Mimi.

A compelling, atmospheric novel inspired by a haunting folk song about murder, witchcraft, and revenge, Long Lankin is a truly stunning debut from an exciting new writer.

    Story
    "would make a fantastic movie"
    What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought she differentiated between the characters well with slight changes in tone and accent, so even if I missed the name at a perspective switch due to inattention, I always knew who was speaking. And she also dramatized it well, ratcheting up the tension so I really empathized with the kids' fear without feeling it was over dramatic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I spent at least the last hour and fortyfive minutes of the book all but wringing my hands with terror and suspense. Whew!


    Any additional comments?

    Well-crafted story, if a bit of a slow starter. Very atmospheric, the characters felt real, and I think the mystery and suspense were well-paced. The slow build of the fear and the reveal of what was happening were satisfying and I thought it paid off at the end.

    "Creepy and Exciting"

    This book has really pulled me in, I keep looking for reasons to go driving by myself so I can listen to more (I am almost done and I don't really want that either). While listed as a teen novel, I found it to be very well written with engaging characters. Alike in style to "Miss Peregrines School for Peculiar Children", but a bit darker or creepier.

    The narration is excellent. Anne Flosnik does a very good job of the voices of each character and, because the author switches between the main characters, the individual voices make the book very easy to follow.
