Overview

Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable--a family.

When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.

In this extremely dark horror novel, 17-year-old Lucy Acosta lives on her father’s palatial estate, with only her Aunt Penelope and cousin Margaret for company. Lucy’s father is distant and cold, except when he throws parties for the wealthy members of the mysterious country club that abuts the Acosta estate. When Penelope disappears after walking off into the forest and Margaret begins to act strange, claiming to hear her mother’s voice in the walls of the mansion, Lucy—who has been harming herself in secret for years—begins to crumble, too. After Margaret dies gruesomely, Lucy also begins to hear voices in the walls. Readers will be invested in Lucy, not least of which because of everything Lukavics (Daughters Unto Devils) throws at her—the novel features a hanging, a variety of impalements, and a dismembered and cooked human body, all described in intensely graphic detail. The story is compelling, and the mansion and its secrets are well depicted, but this ferocious story definitely isn’t for the fainthearted. Ages 14–up. Agent: Joanna Volpe, New Leaf Literary & Media. (Sept.)
