A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead House author Dawn Kurtagich

When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt's home, it's immediately clear that the "blood manor" is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too--the questions that Silla can't ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that's appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer?

Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.
Dawn Kurtagich is a young writer of psychologically sinister fiction, and she has a dark and twisted imagination! She lives in Wales, an ancient and mountainous country within the UK (go to England's Midlands and turn left towards the sea). However, she grew up all over the world, predominantly in Africa.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Started good, ended terribly The first 80% of this book was so so good. It was genuinely terrifying and the writing style was great. The last 20% was awful, from the second the romance kicked in to the stupidest plot twist and ending I've ever read. Don't read this book

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the read This book was a let down. The last 5 pages were the best of the whole book #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from E.E Cummings would be proud I was lucky enough to receive an advanced readers copy and I was impressed by the unique writing style of Dawn Kurtagich. Stilla and Nori arrive at their Aunt's house only for things to go from semi hazy to downright creepy.Stilla keeps seeing a man watching her from the woods, and her sister seems to have a friend who might not be as imaginary as believed. The writing style reminded my of Creeping House, but also of E.E Cummings---whom I love. So for me, the novel was creepishly fantastic. Keep an eye out on your shelves friends!

Editorial Reviews

"Kurtagich maintains the creepy and dark tone through to the end, where readers are not given a neat, tidy ending--the ghosts still haunt, pieces of the story remain missing, and life goes on despite the terrible tragedy at the prestigious Elmbridge High School."-VOYA
