When we first meet Huw, he's recovering from terrible injuries sustained in the accident which killed both his parents. Still barely reconciled to his loss, he suffers another close scrape when he is almost hit by a car--a twist of fate, it transpires, that entwines his destiny with that of Hal, a man tormented by an ancient curse. After this second accident, the bad dreams which have plagued him since the death of his parents get harder to bear and Huw finds himself stuck in a kind of waking sleep. As he becomes increasingly entangled in the web of Hal's darkest fears, he realizes that they have no choice but to confront their worst nightmares together.
Catherine Fisher's hypnotic thriller takes an instant hold on the imagination, gathering pace as the story hurtles towards a terrifying climax, with Hal's curse taking its final toll and Huw fighting for his life and sanity on Belin's Hill. --Susan HarrisonReview:
"Excellent . . . The plot builds to a terrific climax" ( Daily Telegraph)
"Catherine Fisher is a writer of rare talent" ( The Sunday Times)
"A pacy thriller" ( South Wales Argus)
"A remarkable book . . . For the more sophisticated reader, the powerful blend of character angst and Gothic ghost story can be truly rewarding" ( Write Away!)
