Description

When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt's home, it's immediately clear that the "blood manor" is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too--the questions that Silla can't ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that's appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer? In the end, Silla discovers that she, Nori, and her aunt have already died, and are trapped in purgatory, reliving their own lives since Silla first arrived, in an endless cycle. The man with no eyes is a construction of Silla's, formed from her own rage. The beautiful boy from the woods, who was once the love of her life, has attempted to save Silla time and again. Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.show more

Review quote

"Kurtagich weaves a terrifying and mind-bending tale reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft. This is one of the best horror debuts I've read in a long time!"--J.R. Johansson, author of Cut Me Free and The Night Walker seriesshow more
