The Dirty Little Bookers witches will be reading and reviewing Click’s horror, The Bad Box. Stay tuned for an author interview, character interview and more, and pick yourself up a copy by clicking on the cover image below so you can join our ongoing discussion about the book and author.
A warning, though: not all witches will be reading The Bad Box. It’s too scary. Honestly, really dark. Those of you who can handle gore of the scratch-at-your-spine, something’s-behind-the-couch variety, get onboard ’cause it’s badass.
Sarah Temple hopes to find a bit of peace and quiet when she leaves her abusive boyfriend, but instead she finds a world of horror. It’s bad enough that a sadistic serial killer and another maniac are both trying to murder her, but what’s worse is the mysterious Solitary One who controls both of them, a malevolent entity that the serial killer describes as a living darkness, a man and yet not a man, something that’s alive and yet not alive, something that wants to appall the world. Trying to flee from the two killers, Sarah finds herself running deeper and deeper into a deadly supernatural trap, a place where people are buried alive, where ghastly apparitions mutter in the dark, where demented killers prowl, where a crumbling haunted house can drive its victims mad with terror, and where something buried for a very long time may walk again.
