that people are very much anticipating.

So yeah, I'll have an interview with this author on the blog in September, but that's not why I'm waiting on this book. First off, COOL COVER. And secondly, this sounds similar to The Village and it may be kind of cultish and it's set in the past and I like a creepy-sounding story, so I'm in!

Sixteen-year-old Tom Anderson's vacation turns into a nightmare when he is "rescued" from a hiking accident by the Folan family. Why do they keep his door locked? And why won't they let him contact his parents?

At first he thinks Kate Folan is the one he should be afraid of, with her black candles and books on dark magic. But soon he discovers that she is, in fact, his only hope for survival. Together, the teenagers flee the Folans and their evil, seeking freedom and a way to cope with the love that's growing between them--a love that could spell ruin for them both.

Book in One Word: LOVE!
