Spook Rock

Free sample

In the seventeenth century, Salem Massachusetts had a terrible secret. Now, over three hundred years later in upstate New York, BRAD BANNING, a new and inexperienced filmmaker unwittingly discovers that secret. It had escaped the tyranny of the witch hunters and made its home in Spook Rock, a tiny backwoods commune, its throat held in a death grip by an evil force more powerful than time itself. When Banning intrudes too far into the lives of the witches, power-mad Lorianna casts him and his crew into the Abyss populated with ancient monsters, as well as incongruous beacons of purity. Along the way, Banning and his companions, whom he dubs his crew, discover truths about themselves and others, which are deeper and as real as the Hell they find themselves in, and the Heaven with whose help they hope to escape.

Robert R. McCammon
New York Times Bestseller: A young girl’s visions offer the last hope in a postapocalyptic wasteland in this “grand and disturbing adventure” (Dean Koontz).
 
Swan is a nine-year-old Idaho girl following her struggling mother from one trailer park to the next when she receives visions of doom—something far wider than the narrow scope of her own beleaguered life. In a blinding flash, nuclear bombs annihilate civilization, leaving only a few buried survivors to crawl onto a scorched landscape that was once America.
 
In Manhattan, a homeless woman stumbles from the sewers, guided by the prophecies of a mysterious amulet, and pursued by something wicked; on Idaho’s Blue Dome Mountain, an orphaned boy falls under the influence of depraved survivalists and discovers the value of a killer instinct; and amid the devastating dust storms on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Swan forms a heart-and-soul bond with an unlikely new companion. Soon they will cross paths. But only Swan knows that they must endure more than just a trek across an irradiated country of mutated animals, starvation, madmen, and wasteland warriors.
 
Swan’s visions tell of a coming malevolent force. It’s a shape-shifting embodiment of the apocalypse, and of all that is evil and despairing. And it’s hell-bent on destroying the last hope of goodness and purity in the world. Swan is that hope. Now, she must fight not only for her own survival, but for that of all mankind.
 
A winner of the Bram Stoker Award and a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, Swan Song has become a modern classic, called “a chilling vision that keeps you turning pages to the shocking end” by John Saul and “a long, satisfying look at hell and salvation” by Publishers Weekly.
