"Something has been let loose... "


In Edwardian Suffolk, a manor house stands alone in a lost corner of the Fens: a glinting wilderness of water whose whispering reeds guard ancient secrets. Maudis a lonely child growing up without a mother, ruled by her repressive father.


When he finds a painted medieval devilin a graveyard, unhallowed forces are awakened.


Maud's battle has begun. She must survive a world haunted by witchcraft, the age-old legends of her beloved fen - and the even more nightmarish demons of her father's past.


Spanning five centuries, Wakenhyrstis a darkly gothic thrillerabout murderous obsession and one girl's longing to fly free by the bestselling author of Dark Matterand Thin Air. Wakenhyrstis an outstanding new piece of story-telling, a tale of mystery and imagination laced with terror. It is a masterwork in the modern gothic tradition that ranges from Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker to Neil Gaiman and Sarah Perry.
