9780099580232: The Quickening

A honeymoon couple on a tropical island goes horribly wrong. Acclaimed literary author Julie Myerson writes a tense and terrifying Hammer novella.
     Rachel and Dan -- in love, expecting their first baby and also mourning the sudden death of a close friend -- want to go somewhere hot in January. When Dan produces a ring and tells her he's already booked a luxurious resort on Antigua, the holiday turns into a honeymoon. Everything should be perfect. And, at first, it is.

     But Rachel's experience of the island soon turns from idyllic to disturbing. As furniture shifts and objects fly around, a waitress begs her to leave, and a fellow guest starts to frighten her, Rachel realises that something sinister is going on. When the waitress is found dead in the hotel grounds, Rachel realises her only hope is to persuade Dan they should leave. But Dan seems to have his own reasons for wanting to stay, and soon Rachel is unable to decide who -- or what -- she should be most afraid of.

About the Author:

JULIE MYERSON was born in Nottingham in 1960. She is the author of Sleepwalking, The Touch, Me and the Fat Man, Laura Blundy, Something Might Happen, The Story of You, Out of Breath and Then. She lives in London.

Review:

"a gripping tale... Myerson keeps the reader guessing until the very end and provides no easy answers in a deceptively simple read that will compel horror fans while being just as satisfying to her own readership." --Observer


"brimming with black magic, murder and menace. Full of twists and turns, and written with subtlety and intelligence, it's a truly haunting tale written in the best horror tradition." --Sunday Mirror
