“The end is nigh when darkened wings flutter…”
The small town of Crow’s Foot Hollow is thrown into turmoil when a local boy called Dwayne goes missing. For teacher Beth Harwood, it soon becomes clear that the nearby forest is connected to his disappearance. Clouded in mystery, scary stories and haunting nursery rhymes, that forest seems like just the kind of place to swallow a young boy whole.
But the forest isn’t the only thing you have to worry about in Crow’s Foot Hollow. Sometimes the dangers are much closer to home. Chuck Graves lives next door to a family with their share of problems - a couple that always argues, a little girl called Imogen who creeps the hell out of everyone - but they appear to be held together by little Ryan who keeps on smiling regardless of what’s going on. Everything appears normal, but Chuck can’t help but wonder what’s going on behind closed doors.
Crawling with monsters big and small, “Darkened Wings Flutter” wants to get under your skin.
Meet Denny. He's an awkward teenage boy with a penchant for anything odd. He has parents who love him, an older step-sister who has been going through an argumentative phase pretty much since the day she was born and a younger sister with a permanent smile etched on her chubby little face.
Sure, Denny has his quirks. They all do. But they're normal. A normal, run-of-the-mill family living average lives.
That is until hell breaks loose in their suburban home. The invasion of an army of eight-legged critters heralds the arrival of an enemy they can't see, but must fight. An enemy that's always a step ahead of them and determined to spill as much blood as possible. An enemy who seems to be in complete control. Do Denny and his family have what it takes to survive?
One thing's for sure, family life will never be the same again.
Do you remember summers from your childhood? Did the summer holidays seem to last for an eternity? Was it always sunny? Did you laugh and play with your friends for hours on end?
Lydia’s childhood summers were a lot like that. Every year, her parents would take her to a beautiful lake house where they would all relax, watch dragonflies and Lydia could see her best friend Alice. Lydia loved those summers. She never wanted them to end.
But one fateful night changed everything; ruining it completely.
A combination of disappearances, bloodied hammers, terrifying dreams and grisly deaths will change Lydia's summers, and her life, forever.
