Publisher's summary

“An absolute master of modern horror. And a damn fine writer at that.” (Guillermo del Toro)

Patrick Torrington’s aunt Thelma was a successful artist whose late work turned towards the occult. While staying with her in his teens, he found evidence that she used to visit magical sites. As an adult, he discovers her journal of her explorations, and his teenage son Roy becomes fascinated, too. His experiences at the sites scare Patrick away from them, but Roy carries on the search, together with his new girlfriend.

Can Patrick convince his son that his increasingly terrible suspicions are real, or will what they’ve helped to rouse take a new hold on the world?
