The Creeper Man
by Dawn Kurtagich

Goodreads link: (click here)

Description from Goodreads:

A spine-chilling psychological thriller from stunning YA talent and author of THE DEAD HOUSE, Dawn Kurtagich.

When Silla and her little sister, Nori, escape London and their abusive father, Aunt Cath's country house feels like a safe haven. Leaving the smog and fear behind, the girls have the love and freedom they never had in their violent home. But slowly, ever so slowly, things begin to unravel.

Aunt Cath locks herself in the attic and spends day and night pacing; every day the surrounding forest inches slowly towards the house; a mysterious boy appears from the enclosing wood offering friendship, and Nori claims that a man watches them from the dark forest. A man with no eyes who creeps ever closer. . .

Psychologically sinster and creepily atmospheric, Dawn's second YA title is sure to grip fans of Stephen King, Kendare Blake and James Dawson.

Why I'm excited:

First of all, I was immediately drawn to that cover. 

It looks creepy and it says it's creepy. It took me a while to notice that the black oil is actually in the shape of a man . . . *shivers*

I'm always up for some spooky suspense. Bring it on, Creeper Man . . .

What are you waiting to read?
