Title: The Helland Reckoning
Author: Adrian Martin
Publisher: Crooked Cat Publishing
Release Date: June 4, 2016
After a bitter two-year divorce, Katie Tremain heads for a new life with her twin daughters, Sarah and Tegan. The desolation of Bodmin Moor, and a small village called Helland, seems an idyllic place for Katie to begin her new career as a writer. But it’s a village with long-buried secrets.
Battling the inclement weather, an accident with a deer delays her arrival. Something is watching her, in the darkness from afar. During the first night in their new home, Katie is rendered unconscious. She awakens to find Sarah missing. Scared and worried, she calls the police, but before they arrive, a stranger appears in the early morning gloom claiming he wants to help.
Katie has never seen this man before, but Tegan appears to have a connection with him. Reluctantly, Katie accepts his help. But there is only one condition. No police.
Who is this stranger; why the secrecy; and what are his true motives?
But more importantly, who has Sarah?
The Helland Reckoning delves into a world between the living and the dead.
What are you lovelies waiting for?
