Review by 24girl
Mark Edwards really knows how to build up the suspense. The first part of the book was all about how Daniel and Laura avoided telling their story and the consequences of that decision. In the back of my mind I knew that I would eventually learn what happened in Romania but I was dying to get there. Once that part of the story is revealed you just can't get over the creep factor. It's easy to imagine that there are terrors like this happening around the world right now. It kind of makes you think twice about traveling abroad. What follows next is how Laura and Daniel unravel and the slow realization that someone followed them home. Again it's super creepy. Towards the end of the story things get really unbelievable and that's the reason I couldn't rate this any higher than 3 stars. I just couldn't get past how everything is tied up. Too over the top cheesy. One little pet peeve, Edwards writes that Laura has an iPad and not even 2 pages later reveals that Laura doesn't use Apple products because she doesn't like how Apple treats their workers in China. How didn't an editor or early reader catch this? I recommend this for anyone who loves a good suspense thriller.

his was one creepy, creepy read. What starts as the perfect European trip for Laura and Daniel, become derailed in Romania after having their passports and credit cards stolen, they are thrown off the train by the Romanian police. Thrown off with them is Aline, a young Romanian woman they met on the train, traveling with her friend Ion. Stuck in the middle of nowhere, with no papers, Aline goes missing in the woods after entering them to empty her bladder in privacy. Trying to find Aline they come upon a house in the woods, and what they see in this house will cause them to flee and vow to never speak of the atrocities within.For the first half of the book the reader has no idea what Laura and Daniel saw. Strange things start happening to them, and I was thinking horror book, maybe vampires, werewolves. This turns into a wild ride as Laura and Daniel, must confront the evil that followed them home. Never imagines all this entailed nor what length someone will go to keep these things secret.What they saw is key but not the only thing that followed them home. A good, suspense filled story. Daniel is a very likable character and as a reader I didn't want anything bad to happen to him. Strange and creepy and I will make sure I am not alone if I go into the woods.ARC from NetGalley.
