""Poltergeist" meets "The Breakfast Club.""--"Kirkus Reviews" "[A] pyrotechnic climax...a cinematic finale."--"Publishers Weekly""A real page-turner, a first novel of unusual promise."--Ira Levin, author of "Rosemary's Baby""" "Fast, original, and genuinely creepy."--F. Paul Wilson, author of "Midnight Mass""" "Pulsates with a fear factor that starts early and doesn't stop until the last page." --"Florida"" Sun-Sentinel" "Absolutely gripping...It is easy to imagine this as a film...Once started, you won't want to stop reading." --"The Times" (UK)"" "An eerie ghost story that captivates readers from page one.

She brings all her skills as a screenwriter to a tale of supernatural terror as swift as a film."--Ramsey Campbell, author of "The Overnight" "Good, engrossing fun." --"Booklist" "Sokoloff's debut novel is a furiously paced, deftly plotted joy, bursting at the seams with disquieting imagery and carrying a disturbingly dark undercurrent. It gave me a nightmare...and that's rare."--Tim Lebbon, author of "Dusk" ""The Harrowing" is more than an impressive debut novel; it is an impressive work, period...Highly recommended." --BookReporter.com "A top-notch gripping ghost story from the first page." --"New Mystery Reader" "Sokoloff's screenplay training pays off with this economical and very scary tale of five alienated teens who get caught up in forces far, far beyond their control, but she scores extra points for the biblical twist that really ratchets up the tension." --Sarah Weinman "You won't be able to put this gripping page-turner down." --"Bookloons" "A wild and frightening journey that explores an evil that most of us might not know about." --"Fu

Descripción del producto

---- Nominated for the Bram Stoker and Anthony Award for Best First Novel ----

Baird College's Mendenhall echoes with the footsteps of the last home-bound students heading off for Thanksgiving break, and Robin Stone swears she can feel the creepy, hundred-year-old residence hall breathe a sigh of relief for its long-awaited solitude. Or perhaps it's only gathering itself for the coming weekend.

As a massive storm dumps rain on the isolated campus, four other lonely students reveal themselves: Patrick, a handsome jock; Lisa, a manipulative tease; Cain, a brooding musician; and finally Martin, a scholarly eccentric. Each has forsaken a long weekend at home for their own secret reasons.

The five unlikely companions establish a tentative rapport, but they soon become aware of a sixth presence disturbing the ominous silence that pervades the building. Are they the victims of a simple college prank taken way too far, or is the unusual energy evidence of something genuine---and intent on using the five students for its own terrifying ends? It's only Thursday afternoon, and they have three long days and dark nights before the rest of the world returns to find out what's become of them. But for now it's just the darkness keeping company with five students nobody wants and no one will miss.

Reviews:

"Poltergeist meets The Breakfast Club as five college students tangle with an ancient evil presence. Plenty of sexual tension... quick pace and engaging plot."
--- Kirkus Reviews

'Absolutely gripping...It is easy to imagine this as a film...Once started, you won't want to stop reading'
---London Times

'Sokoloff's debut novel is an eerie ghost story that captivates readers from page one. The author creates an element of suspense that builds until the chillingly believable conclusion."'
--Romantic Times

What better thing could strangers isolated in a big, near-deserted building while a raging storm takes out the electricity and compels the use of flickering candles possibly discover than an ancient, charred Ouija board? The previously unacquainted in question are five students sitting out Thanksgiving weekend in a 100-year-old residence hall. And that Ouija board turns wicked, of course, when it manifests a ghost named Zachary, who turns the place into a chaotic battleground for the forces of evil versus cosmic goodness and light. What seemed a sick joke one of the five was playing on the others has morphed into a situation in which no one can be trusted. Sokoloff sustains pace and suspense while encouraging the reader to identify with Robin, a young woman from a poor, alcohol-ravaged family, who yearns for acceptance. Will she get it from the all-American jock she lusts for; the slutty tease; the quiet, intellectual rabbi's son; and the brooding musician who are her companions for this scary ordeal? Good, engrossing fun.
