What the Woods Keep is the stunning debut of Katya de Becerra, who combines mystery, science fiction, and dark fantasy in a twisty story that will keep you mesmerized right up to the final page.

On her eighteenth birthday, Hayden inherits her childhood home-on the condition that she uncover its dark secrets.

Hayden tried to put the past behind her, and it worked. She''s getting ready for college, living in a Brooklyn apartment, and hanging out with her best friend and roommate Del. But now it''s all catching up with her: her mother''s mysterious disappearance a decade before, her father''s outlandish theories about a lost supernatural race, and Hayden''s own dark dreams of strange symbols and rituals in the Colorado woods where she grew up.

As soon as Hayden arrives at her hometown, her friend Del in tow, it begins: Neighbors whisper secrets about Hayden''s mother; the boy next door is now all grown-up in a very distracting way; and Hayden feels the trees calling to her. And among them, deep in the woods, Hayden will discover something incredible-something that threatens reality itself.

An Imprint Book

"Blending mythology and a contemporary story of family drama, de Becerra''s debut novel is a narrative that will keep readers enthralled." -Booklist

"Spooky atmospherics and moral ambiguity complement the blend of science and myth to create a thoughtful and compelling horror fantasy." -BCCB

"This book glues you to the edge of your seat. The writing is powerful, with dashes of humor to lighten the tension at just the right moments... One of the best sci-fi/horror/mysteries I''ve ever read." -Derek Milman, author of Scream All Night

Katya de Becerra was born in Russia, studied in California, lived in Peru, and then stayed in Australia long enough to become a local. She was going to be an Egyptologist when she grew up, but instead she earned a PhD in Anthropology. What The Woods Keep is her first novel.
