Publisher's summary

Something is calling Jacob Maelstrom back to the isolated home of his childhood - to the scene of a living nightmare that almost cost him his life. Ten years ago his sister slaughtered their brother and parents, locked Jacob in a closet...then committed a hideous suicide. Now, as the anniversary of that dark night approaches, Jacob is drawn back to a house where the line between the living and the dead is constantly shifting.

But there's more than awful memories waiting for Jacob at the Maelstrom mansion. There are depraved secrets, evil legacies, and family ghosts that are all too real. There's the long-dead writer, whose mad fantasies continue to shape reality. And in the woods there are nameless creatures who patiently await the return of their creator.

Strange and disjointed but excellent narration

I don’t really know where to begin....probably because I didn’t really know what was going on in this book most of the time. It’s just strange. I would finally think I knew what was going on, only for a new chapter to start and leave me wondering what happened to the story I was listening to in the previous chapter. And, what were the turtles about?! On a positive note, the narration was excellent! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
