Carol and Nessa are strangers but not for much longer.
In a luxury apartment and in the walls of a modern hospital, the evil that was done continues to thrive.
They are in the hands of an entity that knows no boundaries and crosses dimensions – bending and twisting time itself – and where danger waits in every shadow. The battle is on for their bodies and souls and the line between reality and nightmare is hard to define.
Through it all, the words of Lydia Warren Carmody haunt them. But who was she? And why have Carol and Nessa been chosen?
The answer lies deep in the darkness…

I’d never heard of the author before. I was looking forward to reading this book because I’ve read other horror fiction from the publisher and it tends to be pretty decent. This was an even read for me. I really liked some aspects, but the book fell a little short in some areas. I liked the creepy, gothic atmosphere created in the book. This is very well done. I enjoyed the first part which focuses on Carol’s story, but this felt rushed at times. I was settling into her voice and her experience when it was time to get into Nessa’s head. Nessa’s story is the best part of the book, the author gets into her stride here and it was a pleasure to read. If only his had applied to the first chunk. I got to know her a lot more. I was also impressed by the author’s research into Cancer treatment and how this is conveyed in the book without bogging the book down. The author’s writing style is easy to get into as well.
