Seventeen-year-old Lysander Shore and his family thought life was going to be better in Millingham. A safe haven from persecution and prejudice. But beneath the warm smiles and the small town charm lies a terrible secret no one will talk about.

Only Lysander knows what it is. An insidious presence that murders at will and never leaves a trace. Lysander knows because he's seen it and he's pretty sure it saw him too.

But nothing in Millingham happens by chance. The evil has waited nearly 350 years for Lysander to come home. Now it wants to make him pay.

My rating: ★★★★☆

Lysander and his family moved to a new town, a town where people are suddenly being killed in a very gruesome way. Lysander meets a girl, Sam, whose mother was killed years ago. Her death was ruled out as a suicide, but Sam suspects that someone killed her, and that that someone is back for more. Lysander believes that this killer is after him, so he and Sam set out to find the killer before either one of them becomes the next victim.

I really liked this book! The story was very suspenseful and quite creepy…but that’s a good thing because I LOVE horror novels! The descriptions were disgustingly amazing, so much so that they even made me cringe at times! I mean, the way the author described the deaths…totally gross! :D

I liked the short chapters, the forensic stuff and medical terminology, the psychology stuff like the hypnosis and past life regressions (I actually did an essay on these two things), and I liked the brief Egyptian mythology reference, just to name a few things I liked about the book :) And the book cover…totally creepy! Love it!

I would not recommend this book to those who don’t like horror novels or gruesomely graphic scenes. If you don’t fall into either of these categories and actually like horror novels, then it’s totally worth reading!

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
