Horror

Little Eve

Little Eve

Catriona Ward

$22.99
'Where is Evelyn? Oh, I remember. She took our eyes.' New Year's Day, 1921. Seven mutilated bodies are discovered in an ancient stone circle on a remote Scottish island. The victims are 'the Children' - members of a nature cult ruled by the charismatic, sadistic patriarch, the adder.

The sole survivor of the massacre, Dinah, claims that Eve is the murderer, apparently drowned while attempting her escape. Yet as Eve's story of the years leading up the massacre intertwines with Dinah's account of the aftermath, a darker, stranger truth begins to emerge.

The Isle is all Eve knows. Hidden from the world, the Children worship the Great Snake who dwells in the ocean, dance in the stones at dawn and offer their blood in sacrifice. The adder's word is law. When Eve is forced into the world beyond the Isle her faith and love are tested by unexpected friendships that make her question everything. As she begins to see through the adder's macabre fictions, the world Eve knows collapses. Does she lose her humanity with her belief? Does it drive her to kill?

Set against the distant thunder of the First World War, 'Little Eve' is a chilling account of violence, belief and corroding power, a lyrical journey through the wild reaches of the human spirit. Combining the dynamic plotting of Golden Age detective fiction with the pagan energy of the Wicker Man this is a heart-pounding literary thriller with a devastating twist.

The Forbidden Door (#4 Jane Hawk)

The Forbidden Door (#4 Jane Hawk)

Dean Koontz

$18.95
We're rewriting the play, and the play is this country, the world, the future. We break Jane's heart, we'll also break her will.

She was one of the FBI's top agents until she became the nation's most-wanted fugitive. Now Jane Hawk may be all that stands between a free nation and its enslavement by a powerful secret society's terrifying mind-control technology. She couldn't save her husband, or the others whose lives have been destroyed, but equipped with superior tactical and survival skills - and the fury born of a broken heart and a hunger for justice - Jane has struck major blows against the insidious cabal.

But Jane's enemies are about to hit back hard. If their best operatives can't outrun her, they mean to bring her running to them, using her five-year-old son as bait. Jane knows there's no underestimating their capabilities, but she must battle her way back across the country to the remote shelter where her boy is safely hidden... for now. As she moves resolutely forward, new threats begin to emerge: a growing number of brain-altered victims driven hopelessly, violently insane. With the madness spreading like a virus, the war between Jane and her enemies will become a fight for all their lives - against the lethal terror unleashed from behind the forbidden door.

Transformation

Transformation

Mary Shelley

$16.95
Having frittered away his family's fortune in Paris, the profligate Guido il Cortese incurs the wrath of his future father-in-law and finds himself in exile from his native Genoa and harbouring plans for revenge. After a mighty storm, he sees a mysterious, misshapen creature emerging from the sea, with whom he makes an infernal bargain to exchange bodies, with momentous consequences.

First published in 1831 and here presented with the supernatural stories `The Evil Eye' and `The Immortal Mortal', the chilling Gothic tale `Transformation' is a paragon of the genre by the author of Frankenstein.
