Description

No one who lives on the beautiful little island of Raven's Point knows of the island's dark history, of the evil that was born there. Why would they? They've got too much going on in their lives to worry aboutmassacres hundreds of years ago.

Jane Romano's brother, Elijah, is in a coma. She spends most of her time trying to keep her parents from completely losing it. Friends? Fun? Not anymore. And maybe never again.

Tavia Burrows is trying to get it through her head that Elijah, her first love, first kiss, first everything, is never coming back to her. She has college to think about. And maybe even a new boyfriend. If she can survive the next few weeks on Raven's Point.

Seth McFadden is new in town. He's noticed Jane noticing him. He's not planning on doing anything about it, though, because he has a secret that he knows would make a girl like Jane run away from him.

Soon Jane, Tavia, and Seth will be forced to learn the truth about their island's violent past -- and their part in it. They are going to have to face the evil that came to life in the place they call home, or Raven's Point and everyone on it will be destroyed.

Review Text

Love defeats evil in mediocre gross-out horror. The sleepy little New England island town of Raven's Point has a dark history. While Jane's brother Elijah wakes up from his year-long coma, the town's old grudges and petty nastiness escalate disturbingly. Only Jane, Elijah's ex-girlfriend Tavia, and shy basketball-star Seth seem unaffected. The town is rocked with arguing, which becomes violence, followed by increasing insanity, gang rape, and attempted murder. Explicit scenes of animal abuse and self-mutilation punctuate this gore-fest. Jane, Tavia, and Seth develop powers that show them about a vile evil that last rose on Raven's Point in 1702. With the powers of love, self-sacrifice, and ridiculous special effects, the teens will defeat the ancient evil and get dates. Not scary; just disgusting. (Fiction. YA) (Kirkus Reviews)
