IMAGINE...
Leaving your house in the middle of the night.
Knowing your mother is doing her best, but she's just as scared as you.

IMAGINE...
Starting a new school, making friends.
Seeing how happy it makes your mother.
Hearing a voice, calling out to you.

IMAGINE...
Following the signs, into the woods.
Going missing for six days.
Remembering nothing about what happened.

IMAGINE...
Something that will change everything...
And having to save everyone you love.

I don’t read Horror stories much – my imagination is too wild – and I get nightmares, but this one I couldn’t put down.

And what this is really, is the battle between Good and Evil – as is common in fantasy novels, with a child/ren at the core of it. But who is really the Good? And who really the Bad? That is the stark choice that the children have to make – at an age when their brains are still very malleable and have yet got to the age of knowledge.

I found myself cheering for the boys and their defence of having a tree house – but what it did to the boys’ brains was spooky and eerie. And then there was the ‘luck’ or payment perhaps and..

I liked the style of the author and found it easy to read, clear and whilst not a short book, the story didn’t get boring. An amount of editing out of some of the scenes might of helped, but still excellent in its genre.
