9780099580249: The Quickening

A honeymoon couple 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.
     
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.

About the Author:

JULIE MYERSON was born in Nottingham in 1960. She is the author of Sleepwalking (1993), The Touch (1996), Me and the Fat Man (1998), Laura Blundy (2000), Something Might Happen (2003), The Story of You (2006), Out of Breath (2008) and Then (2011). 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
