Overview

In The Children's Hour -- from award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg -- Joe Gardner discovers that something is terribly wrong with the children in Colony, West Virginia.

"Douglas Clegg knows exactly what scares us, and he knows how to twist those fears into hair-raising chills..." -- Tess Gerritsen, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Rizzoli & Isles series.

Innocent though they seem, these kids come out at night -- to hunt.

When Joe returns with his wife and two young children to the seemingly peaceful mountain town of Colony, West Virginia, he doesn't expect to find the girl who disappeared when he was a boy.

But she remembers Joe and her other friends who left her behind in a deep well within a mysterious barn on Old Man Feely's property.

And she's out for blood.

"Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby."
-- Dean Koontz

Is she a vampire?

Or is she something more demonic...

They say that Colony was founded centuries ago by an angel that fell from sky, but whatever's lurking in the old mines under the town has been disturbed by Joe's return.

Joe did something when he was a boy – something that stopped the terror and evil from erupting.

But now, a creature living in darkness wants out.

It's going to use the children of Colony to exact its revenge.

Its hour has come round at last – and this is the Children's Hour...

A terrifying chiller of a horror novel from a master of gothic thrillers.

The Children's Hour is a full-length novel, approximately 370 pages in print. Exclusively published by Alkemara Press for Nook.
