About Book

Alex is my twin. We're not identical or anything. But something holds us together even when we argue and fight - something secret. We're telepathic. And I can hear him now.

'We're prisoners, Adam.'

It was supposed to be a normal family holiday. Nothing to report, apart from the usual bickering. But this is different. This town is weird, with its time-warp houses and zombie inhabitants. Worst of all, no matter which way we run, there's no way out. The people are closing in.

Now they're after our sister, sweet little Emmy. We've got to save her - from the chanting, the madness and from the ancient curse.
