The Power of Dark

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Farshore

A close encounter with a rotting corpse during a freak storm would be disconcerting for most people but, despite the influence of her goth parents, Lil is a realist who believes there is a logical explanation for everything.

The same storm uncovers a long-lost magical artefact that becomes the catalyst to reignite an ancient feud and opens the door to unspeakable evil. Unaware of this, Lil doesn’t realise that dark forces, suppressed for centuries, are about to re-emerge and bring deadly consequences to the town.

Set in Whitby, allegedly the most haunted place in Britain, this is a creepy, tense and multi-layered gothic horror story. Suspense builds with each chapter as past and present are drawn into ever-closer proximity and collision and destruction seem inevitable. It might be wise to set aside a whole weekend before starting this book as, once begun, it’s almost impossible to put down.
