Summary:

Everything is about to change…

When Ross Lowry moves into his cousin’s guest house in the small community of Magdalena, Arizona, he expects nothing more than breathing room and a brief respite from his economic woes. But something is not right in the desert. After a raucous party on New Year’s Eve, the luck of the attendees undergoes an immediate U-turn. The rich and successful suddenly find themselves facing catastrophic failure while the less well-off are unexpectedly flush with good fortune.

This is only the beginning…

Soon the citizens of Magdalena are experiencing unnatural desires. Next their children begin to disappear and freakish creatures emerge from the surrounding wilderness. The community is unraveling at a frightening pace. But these are merely the early warning signs of a showdown with a powerful force of darkness that could obliterate the world forever, and only Ross Lowry sees the danger that lurks ahead.

“Yes, the criminally overlooked Little might go a little too crazy here, but his small-town-loses-its-shit recalls his masterful The Mailman, and that should be all the recommendation fans need.”--Booklist

    Good read

  • Carmel S.

    Another winner from this terrific, dependable author. I always like to amp up my horror collection during October (of course) and this was a great choice. The characters are well-drawn and incredibly likeable, you root for them, and the little besieged down of Magdalena, from day one. That makes this more than just a horror story. It's also a wonderful novel about how people cope with sudden terror and strangeness in their lives. The story is gripping and absolutely terrifying. As usual with Little, it builds slowly and menacingly and then just explodes. You won't be disappointed.
