about

 
It''s a perfect beach day, or so thought the family, young couple, a few tourists, and a refugee who all end up in the same secluded, idyllic cove filled with rock pools and sandy shore, encircled by green, densely vegetated cliffs.
But this utopia hides a dark secret.
First there is the dead body of a woman found floating in the crystal-clear water.
Then there is the odd fact that all the children are aging rapidly. Soon everybody is growing older-every half hour-and there doesn''t seem to be any way out of the cove. Levy''s dramatic storytelling works seamlessly with Peeters''s sinister art to create a profoundly disturbing and fantastical mystery.

Praise for Sandcastle:

"Begins like a murder mystery, continues like an episode of The Twilight Zone, and finishes with a kind of existentialism that wouldn''t be out of place in a Von Trier film." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
"Sandcastle is a fast 112-page read you won''t be able to put down."  -Cleveland.com

"Peeters and Lévy convey some profound, if profoundly unsubtle, truths about the human condition. Weighty stuff, expertly told." -The Comics Bulletin
