“Lucid, chilling, and darkly hopeful…” – Tominda Adkins, author of Vessel
Officer Michael Duncan went missing in 1993 while trying to save a local child from flood waters in the woods of Soldier Creek.
There are unimaginable secrets in the forest where Michael disappeared. Sinister magic toils just beneath the surface of reality, feeding on the lives of innocent children throughout the ages. Michael’s first encounter with magic was brief and dreadful.
He was presumed dead for almost twenty years.
And then he came back.
Magic is real. And it comes at a cost.
