Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Author Sarah Crowe leaves Atlanta after her girlfriend commits suicide, settling at a homestead in rural Rhode Island in order to finish her latest book, which is well past deadline. There's something sinister about the house, and Sarah quickly learns that the previous tenant, a professor and folklorist named Charles Harvey, killed himself while researching a book about the supernatural folklore of New England. Exploring the basement, Sarah discovers Harvey's manuscript, and she quickly finds herself in the middle of a living nightmare centered on a mysterious red oak tree in the house's yard. Verdict With its intelligent blend of folklore, horror, and dark fantasy, Kiernan's latest appeal well beyond urban fantasy fans; readers who enjoy Neal Gaiman, Poppy Z. Brite, and Keith Donohue may want to check Lost fans mourning the lack of new episodes will appreciate the similar themes and intricate puzzles here. (c) Copyright 2010.
