Ellie Crane doesn’t believe in demons or vampires, but she still hates the idea of moving into a creepy old house. But when her husband’s aunt bequeaths them a sprawling forest estate, Ellie finds herself stuck in a setting straight out of a horror movie. Then the real horror begins.
After a gruesome accident on the night of their arrival, Ellie awakens to find something lapping at her wounds. Her husband Chris undergoes a radical change–and not for the better. The darkness dissipates, however, when Ellie learns that after three years of trying, she and Chris have finally conceived. But Ellie and her unborn child are in terrible danger.
For fifty years Chris’s Aunt Lillith lived a secret life of demon worship, vampirism, and violent eroticism. She and her lover believed they’d have to undergo death and resurrection to continue their reign of terror. Now Chris, who has been enchanted by a mysterious woman in the woods, is determined to help them.
Ellie will have to overcome her husband’s madness, her personal demons, the supernatural creatures whose powers are growing–even the very forest, which has grown sentient and malevolent–if she is to save her baby and herself. But the reach of Lillith’s power is unimaginable. And she needs innocent blood to make her resurrection complete.
I really enjoyed this story, again the author has written a story with a highly additive plot that really made for a book I found really hard to put down.
The book was well developed, the location was great and it had the perfect atmosphere to allow the story to creep along. I thought that the characters were well developed and they worked perfectly with he plot. I loved the suspense the author achieved with his writing style. He has a natural talent and is perfectly suited to this genre of book.
It is 4 stars from me for this one, another great release by this fabulous author!
