"Incorporating elements from such genre classics as The Exorcist, Poltergeist, and Bad Seed, but telling its own story, this horror novel contains moments of genuine terror that should stick with readers long after they’ve finished the book. The story seems simple enough: Jack and his family (wife Aimee, daughters Abby and Charlie) survive a car accident, but afterward, six-year-old Charlie seems to change, to take on a new and frightening personality. Aimee struggles to understand what’s going on with her little girl, but Jack already knows: the horror that came to him when he was a child has found him again. Ahlborn doesn’t pull any punches here, delivering a story that is atmospheric and brutal, with an ending that is absolutely correct and absolutely horrifying. Genre fans should be enthusiastically pointed in this novel’s direction."

"I absolutely loved Ahlborn’s evocative writing style, which was supersaturated with dark imagery throughout. Her poetic narrative enriched and deepened every sequence...this was a shockingly dark and sublimely creepy read that I won’t soon forget."
