Maplecroft

Rating
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one . . . The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny. But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean's depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness. This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it. With an axe. 'A mesmerizing, absolute must-read.' Brian Keene, author of The Rising 'Give Cherie Priest fifteen minutes of your time; trust me - you won't look back.' Bookslut 'Priest kills as a stylist.' Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction 'Cherie Priest kicks ass!' Maggie Shayne, New York Times bestselling author of Sleep with the Lights On
