Publisher's Summary

It only grows at night.
Karen Tandy was a sweet and unassuming girl until she discovered the mysterious lump growing underneath her skin. As the doctors and specialists puzzle over the growth, Karen's personality begins to change. The doctors decide to cut out the lump - but then it moves. Now a chain reaction has begun and everyone who comes in contact with Karen Tandy understands the very depths of terror. Her body and soul are being taken over by a black spirit over four centuries old. He is the remembrance of the evils the white man has bestowed on the Indian people, and the vengeance that has waited 400 years to surface. He is the Manitou.

The story was good, but long winded.

The story was a little two fantastical to actually be scary and a bit too long winded to grip me and hold my attention. The story was good, but left me feeling like I wish it was a lot shorter.

Not Bad - a bit too tangled to be scary at all

Not bad, good story idea - but too unbelievable to be scary. To me, real scare starts with something that I can see happening and then makes me hesitate to turn off the lights…that’s the sweet spot. This book…..missed that.

But, it’s still an interesting story. The ending left me saying, “Hmmm.”
