Publisher's Summary

Something is wrong at Cheshunt. Nathanial feels it the moment he arrives. It is not the model neighborhood it appears to be; strange things happen, despite the curfew. And soon Nathanial learns that his presence is no accident. As the dark calls its own, so does the light draw its champions, and Nathanial finds he must confront phantoms from his own past in his battle to stop the Gathering and its creator.


Audible Editor Reviews

This supernatural thriller for young adults - which Publishers Weekly described as both "superbly crafted" and "utterly riveting" - pits Nathaniel, 15 and a newcomer to the town of Cheshunt against feral dogs, strange smells, emotionless, robot-like adults, fascistic school monitors, and a demonic high school principal. There is an evil power behind "the gathering", and, although still in mourning for his father, Nathaniel is called to lead the forces of light against those of darkness. Peter Hardy adds his gritty, eerie tone to the work of Isabelle Carmody, who has received numerous awards for her fiction for younger and older readers.


What the Critics Say
