Summary from Goodreads:

When people go missing in the sleepy town of Smith's Hollow, the only clue to their fate comes when a teenager starts having terrifying visions, in a chilling horror novel from national bestselling author Christina Henry.

When the bodies of two girls are found torn apart in the town of Smiths Hollow, Lauren is surprised, but she also expects that the police won't find the killer. After all, the year before her father's body was found with his heart missing, and since then everyone has moved on. Even her best friend, Miranda, has become more interested in boys than in spending time at the old ghost tree, the way they used to when they were kids.

So when Lauren has a vision of a monster dragging the remains of the girls through the woods, she knows she can't just do nothing. Not like the rest of her town. But as she draws closer to answers, she realizes that the foundation of her seemingly normal town might be rotten at the center. And that if nobody else stands for the missing, she will.


How creepy! This book has a wonderful mix of witches, beasts and magic. As we read through the story, we find out about a strange witches curse on the town and how things are starting to go wrong.

I do have to say, that the beginning was a little slow for me, that's why I gave the book 4 stars, but once I got into the middle of the story, I couldn't put it down. I also have to bring up the fact that the "Karen" in the story got bitch slapped and it was very satisfying, so thank you for that Christina Henry.

The characters were all wonderful. They each play a part in the story and they play it well.

I've been a fan of Christina Henry's books for a while and this was a great read.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
