9780099580249: The Quickening

Rachel and Dan want to go somewhere hot in January.

Recently married and expecting their first baby, they decide on an island in the Caribbean. Why not turn it into a honeymoon, Dan says?

A holiday in paradise. It ought to be perfect. Except that, for Rachel, it's not.

Things take a sinister turn as soon as they arrive.

As furniture shifts and objects fly around, as a waitress begs her to leave and a fellow guest makes her increasingly uneasy, Rachel realises everything she holds most dear is at stake and nothing is quite as it seems...

Review:

"Myerson takes us into her rising levels of panic, right up to the final plot-twist ... Myerson writes with a fluidity that quickly absorbs the reader" ( Independent)

"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)

"Good things happen when writers enter the realm of the unexpected for new horror fiction from Hammer ... The pace is terrific and she keeps your pulse pounding." ( The Times, Saturday Review)

"a good fast read; just the thing for your next Caribbean holiday" ( Evening Standard)

"genuinely scary and enthralling" ( Spectator)

"a genuinely creepy tale from a very skilled author" ( Rich Tapestry Reads)

"Julie Myerson's novels are perfectly suited to long, drifting afternoons spent in empty houses with only the odd, atmospheric creak of pipe or groan of plank for company." ( Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

A honeymoon on a tropical island goes horribly wrong. A tense and terrifying Hammer novella by Julie Myerson, the author of Something Might Happen and The Story of You.
