And The Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich
Published: September 4th 2016
A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead House author Dawn Kurtagich
When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt’s home, it’s immediately clear that the “blood manor” is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too–the questions that Silla can’t ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that’s appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer?
Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.
I read The Dead House and LOVED it. I was bursting at the seams with excitement when I received an arc copy from Hachette Book Group (Thank you, thank you, thank you!)
I found it very neat that the same book was published under an alternate name with an exceptionally creepy cover for international readers.
Kurtagich has a way of playing with readers innermost fears. She tugs at our heartstrings by putting the characters we love most in danger.
This entire story I wasn’t sure whom I could trust. Was this world real? Was it a dream? Was it an escape from reality? I was riddled with questions whilst devouring every page. Of course in a fantastic way, this book kept me on my toes and my interest piqued.
I can’t wait to read more from Kurtagich!
