(editor's executive summary)
As strange lights shine through the fog surrounding a small, barren island, Irene's younger brother dreams of a dark creature hidden deep in the forest. And when a young girl is found murdered, her body at the end of a path torn through the woods by a monstrous, inhuman force, Irene and Ishmael wonder-has a demonic presence been unleashed on the inhabitants of Cape House? Together, they'll have to survive the most terrifying summer of their lives, as they try to piece together the many mysteries and secrets hidden in a town torn apart by tragedy, amidst a labyrinth of lights and shadows.
My point of view
Interesting story but the beginning is a little bit too long. I'm agree that it's a good gothic novel in the tradition of the nineteenth century, but the fact that the principal action takes place in France during the second World War is the cause of lot incoherences, that a french people notice at the first sight.
