Title: And the Trees Crept In
Author: Dawn Kurtagich
Featured Monster: Creeper Man
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?
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.
This is the first book I’ve read this month that really began to creep me out. I figured out the twist pretty early on, but it still didn’t take away from the psychological thrill of the narrative. I honestly really enjoyed this book. If you want to read something that messes with your mind a little bit as the narrator descends into madness, I definitely recommend this book.
