Jayce's twenty-year-old daughter Emory is missing, lost in a dark, dangerous realm called Shadow that exists alongside our own reality. An enigmatic woman named Nicola guides Jayce through this bizarre world, and together they search for Emory, facing deadly dog-eaters, crazed killers, homicidal sex toys, and - worst of all - a monstrous being known as the Harvest Man. But no matter what Shadow throws at him, Jayce won't stop. He'll do whatever it takes to find his daughter, even if it means becoming a worse monster than the things that are trying to stop him.

`Tim Waggoner's The Mouth of the Dark is what happens when Clive Barker, Sam and Dean from Supernatural, and Chad Palahniuk go on an acid trip inside of Eli Roth's Hostile.' Halloween Eddie `When Waggoner goes weird- you keep turning the pages. Take a chance and give it a read, but you've been warned: leave your disbelief at the door and keep an eye out for those filthy Dog-Eaters.' Kendall Reviews `The Mouth of the Dark is a unique horror story with an intriguing mystery at its core. It's full of wicked imagery, outlandish creatures, depraved desires and vivid situations that have you seeing odd stuff from the corner of your eye.' Yolanda Sfetsos `Tim Waggoner, you are a literary genius. This is an extraordinary tale, a frightening, exciting, and thrilling ride from start to finish. The Mouth of the Dark has opened up a whole new world of wonder for me, I feel inspired by it, and I feel that it has cracked open a creative door within me that I don't think can ever be closed.' - Horror Housewife `An eclectic assembly of everything macabre and terrifying, THE MOUTH OF THE DARK is a riveting read you'll keep reading long after the sun has gone down. Seeped with dodgy oddities and unexpected moments of betrayal and allies, this great work of fiction has left me breathless in a way having run a marathon would or if you've been binge-reading George R.R Martin's WILDCARDS series.' - Splattergeist
