Description
"Imagine Stephen King writing Little House on the Prairie and you'll get the chilling, mind-bending horrors of Amy Lukavics's haunting and powerful debut novel." -- Cat Winters, Morris Award Finalist for In the Shadow of Blackbirds When sixteen-year-old Amanda Verner's family decides to move from their small mountain cabin to the vast prairie, she hopes it is her chance for a fresh start. She can leave behind the memory of the past winter; of her sickly ma giving birth to a baby sister who cries endlessly; of the terrifying visions she saw as her sanity began to slip, the victim of cabin fever; and most of all, the memories of the boy she has been secretly meeting with as a distraction from her pain. The boy whose baby she now carries. When the Verners arrive at their new home, a large cabin abandoned by its previous owners, they discover the inside covered in blood. And as the days pass, it is obvious to Amanda that something isn't right on the prairie. She's heard stories of lands being tainted by evil, of men losing their minds and killing their families, and there is something strange about the doctor and his son who live in the woods on the edge of the prairie. But with the guilt and shame of her sins weighing on her, Amanda can't be sure if the true evil lies in the land, or deep within her soul. More Praise "[An] intensely creepy debut....There is no happy ending here and horror, and spine-tingler readers, will relish Lukavics's tale right down to the last terrifying page." -- School Library Journal "An old-fashioned ghost story plays on primal fears...." -- Kirkus Reviews "A creepy read that mashes Laura Ingalls Wilder's prairie purity with Stephen King's most frightful horror." -- Booklist "Deeply disturbing, truly riveting and highly recommended." --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and The Nightsiders "Daughters unto Devils is basically Little Hell House on the Prairie." -- Grady Hendrix, author of Horrorstor: a Novel "Dark, dangerous, and creepily atmospheric. This is classic horror at its best." -- Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten and the "Don't Get Mad" series
