There’s hidden places all over this land-old, old places. Places with a chain for them to chain up the wolf when it’s time.
A mysterious young man has come to a small Highland town. His talent for wood carving soon wins the admiration of the weaver’s daughter, Maddie. Fascinated by the silent carver, she sets out to gain his trust, only to find herself drawn into a terrifying secret that threatens everything she loves.
There is an evil presence in the carver’s life that cannot be controlled, and Maddie watches her town fall under a shadow. One by one, people begin to die. Caught in the middle, Maddie must decide what matters most to her-and what price she is willing to pay to keep it.
I picked up this book based Solely on Misty’s, over at The Book Rat, recommendation. I also bought The House of Dead Maids by the same author which I ended up really enjoying so I hope this one is just as good. Not usually a big fan of historical books but because this is just over 200 pages I’m not too worried about it. There seems to be some horror involved too which just sounds fantastic.
