My Rating :
On a soft summer night in Vermont, 12-year-old Lisa went into the woods behind her house and never came out again. Before she disappeared, she told her little brother, Sam, about a door that led to a magical place where she would meet the King of the Fairies and become his queen.
Fifteen years later, Phoebe is in love with Sam, a practical, sensible man who doesn't fear the dark and doesn't have bad dreams - who, in fact, helps Phoebe ignore her own. But suddenly the couple is faced with a series of eerie, unexplained occurrences that challenge Sam's hardheaded, realistic view of the world. As they question their reality, a terrible promise Sam made years ago is revealed - a promise that could destroy them all.
Woahhhh. This book took me on a ride! Author Jennifer McMahon knows how to deliver a creepy story that thrills! This book is beautifully written and successfully weaves a story about love, family secrets, and fairytales! I fell in love with this book from page 1 and couldn’t put it down until I finished all 447 pages. Readers be warned: this book is filled with the unexpected and none of your questions will truly be answered until the very last page… if at all.
I highly recommend this book to fans of suspense, thrillers, dark fairytales, and horror. That’s a lot of genres put together, I know. BUT, McMahon DOES it in this book. She has quite the imagination. I am an instant FAN of her work and cannot wait to grab another in the near future!
Genre:Mixture of horror, thriller, suspense, mystery, and fantasy.
