By the bestselling author of Dark Matter and Thin Air an outstanding new piece of story telling a tale of mystery and imagination laced with terror It is a masterwork in the modern gothic tradition that ranges from Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker to Neil Gaiman and Sarah PerrySomething has been let looseI This VictorianEdwardian gothic novel was a compulsive read that kept me awake till small hours It has everything I love about the genre dramatic location mystery folklore and beautiful writing style I was captivated by the way the story unravels from the very first pages you feel the evil that in somewhere there in the Fens at Wake's End In Edmund Stearn's mind Maud Stearn Edmund's daughter now an elderly lady who still lives at Wake's End agrees to come back to the terrible events which took place over five decades earlier And by doing so she manages to save her family homeIt is very difficult to write about this novel without adding any spoilers let me just add that WAKENHYRST for me is a most fine example of the gothic novel and a delight for the genre lovers

WakenhyrstS are awakenedMaud's battle has begun She must survive a world haunted by witchcraft the age old legends of her beloved fen – and the even nightmarish demons of her father's pastSpanning five centuries Wakenhyrst is a darkly gothic thriller about murderous obsession and one girl's longing to fly free A creepy gothic whydunnit set in the fens of Suffolk Wakenhyrst is gripping from the first page This is a story of obsession madness delusion superstition Wakenhyrst mostly takes place in the early 20th century just prior to the first World War and combines creepy medieval church art; old religious notions of witchcraft demonic possession and saintly miracles; lingering pagan superstitions leaving a bowl of bread and milk at the door for witches; a creaky old manor house; the eerie natural beauty of the watery fens The details of a murder are provided upfront the rest of the book covers the events leading up to it So you get a great early hook but it also means the book drags a little towards the end knowing what’s coming I grew impatient to finally get there and it’s a real slow burn Michelle Paver is well known for her chilling ghost stories but to me this one is historical fiction with a crime element There is still some suggestion of the supernatural in Wakenhyrst but that element of ambiguity where the rational explanation and the spooky one are eually plausible just wasn’t present here I was Team Rational all the way This did not diminish the story for me at all but other readers expecting a Paver haunting might be disappointed With a palpable atmosphere terrific setting and well drawn characters Wakenhyrst is a satisfying read
