Publisher's Summary

In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister - at all costs.

Once a year, a road appears in the forest. And at the end of it, the ghost of Lucy Gallows beckons. Lucy's game isn't for the faint of heart. If you win, you escape with your life. But if you lose....

Sara's sister disappeared one year ago - and only Sara knows where she is. Becca went to find the ghost of Lucy Gallows and is trapped on the road that leads to her. In the sleepy town of Briar Glen, Lucy's road is nothing more than local lore. But Sara knows it's real, and she's going to find it. 

When Sara and her skeptical friends meet in the forest to search for Becca, the mysterious road unfurls before them. All they have to do is walk down it. But the path to Lucy is not of this world, and it has its own rules. Every mistake summons new horrors. Vengeful spirits and broken, angry creatures are waiting for them to slip, and no one is guaranteed safe passage. The only certainty is this: The road has a toll and it will be paid.

Sara knows that if she steps onto the road, she might not come back. But Becca needs her.

And Lucy is waiting.

Entertaining and creepy

Sara’s sister, Becca, has been missing for a year after searching for a little girl named Lucy. Local legend is Lucy ran into the woods one day decades earlier and never returned. Sara has isolated herself from everyone in her life and becomes obsessed with research on Lucy. On the one year anniversary, Sara is going to search for Becca. Her old friends insert themselves into her plans, and it’s all creepy, crazy from there. Pretty good stuff!

It’s written as a testimony of the past events, which I normally don’t care for at all. However, it worked perfectly for this book.

I’ll definitely listen to this book again. The narrators did a great job holding your attention. I was never bored.

So creepy

I could not stop listening to this book. The author just had this way with world building and character development. Kate Alice Marshall managed to make me want to stop and keep going at the same time. Something about this book reminded me of My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix because both included an epic supernatural adventure, very real friendships and a beautiful platonic love story. the reason why I gave it 4 stats overall is because of the ending. Something about it just felt very half baked. I went from being on a high for 8 hours to just feeling completely annoyed. I would recommend this to a friend though. It was beautifully disturbing.

Could Not Stop Listening

This book is one of the best I’ve listened to in years. The story is deep and thought provoking with a shocking twist at the end. An absolute must for anybody interested in the magic realism genre
