Young widower John Gimmerick takes his daughter, Seren, to visit his childhood home in a rundown ex-mining village on the rugged northeast coast of England.


When Seren speaks of a sinister presence that emerges from the shadows of her room each night, John's nostalgia gives way to dark, disturbing memories. He realises the haunting past he once fled has resurfaced within the very walls of his childhood haven.


John's terror of the past intensifies when he discovers the key to saving his daughter lies in the help of his childhood sweetheart, Natasha. Their shared history is marred by deep-rooted resentment, and Natasha has painstakingly built a life that she now risks shattering by confronting the haunted past they both sought to forget.


How can John possibly convince Natasha to aid him in this desperate battle against the encroaching darkness?


In this gripping tale of love, loss, and regret, John must confront his own demons while convincing the one person he thought would never stand by his side. The stakes are high, and the shadowy force threatens to consume not only Seren's soul but also the fragile bond between father and daughter.


Editorial Reviews:



"One of my criteria for a five-star book is simply this - did I want to read it from cover to cover? Yes? It's a winner. This was one of those books. I was hooked from page one and read it super fast, every spare moment I had. The book reminded me of some of Adam Nevill's novels (high praise indeed!) and also J.D. Barker's first horror novel, Forsaken (again, very high praise!)" - Booklover Catlady Reviews 



"Fans of horror that is not over the top will enjoy reading Emergence by R. H. Dixon. The book manages to create a sense of dread without having to use gore and abstruse monstrosities. The evil is more subtle – and while there are some disturbing images, their placement is well done and will be appreciated by readers who will expect some shock value in a novel like this."- Reader's Favorite
