A terrifying supernatural page-turner that explores ghosts, grief, and god complexes

Ever since their on-again, off-again college romance, Erin hasn’t been able to set a single boundary with charismatic but reckless Silas, who has been chasing the next big high since graduation. When he texts her to spring him out of rehab, she knows enough is enough. She is ready to start a career, make new friends, and meet a great guy—even if that means cutting Silas off. But when Silas turns up dead from an overdose, Erin’s world falls apart.

When Erin learns that Silas discovered a drug that allowed him to see the dead, she doesn’t believe it’s real but agrees to a pill-popping “séance” to ease her guilt and pain. When she steps back into the real world, she starts to see ghosts everywhere from her Southern hometown’s bloody and brutal past. Are the effects pharmacological or something more sinister? And will Erin be able to shut the Pandora’s box of horrors she has opened?

With propulsive momentum, bone-chilling scares, and dark meditations on the weight of history, this Southern horror will make you think twice about opening doors to the unknown.

Reviews

“Probes the terrorizing psychological grip of addiction, both to drugs and to toxic relationships…The narrative sucks readers into its dark, disorienting world.”

“Weaves hair-raising, goosebump-inducing horror through a sharp exploration of loss, addiction, and grim history. Haunting guaranteed.”

“[An] excellent horror novel.”

“A Gothic-punk graveyard tale…An addicting read that draws you into its descent from the first page.”

“Reads like a scared straight program that horrifies you into choosing life.”

“A nonstop thrill ride, all you can do is strap in and prepare to be haunted.”

“Shades of Flatliners and addiction drama pepper this tale.”

“[A] thrill ride of ghosts, grief, and god complexes explored through a Southern Gothic lens.”

“A legitimately terrifying ghost story and also a thoughtful and smart (if grim) exploration of how addiction destroys lives.”

“Fans of body horror will rejoice as Chapman leads readers through a trippy world.”

“A keenly observant narrative that, with a mix of body horror and just plain horror, plucks at the raw nerves of the grieving process.”

“Chapman has created an experience so anxiety inducing, immersive, and intense that readers will feel like something is actually there, lurking over their shoulder as they turn the pages.”

“A high anxiety, utterly original, and compelling contemplation of what it means to be haunted.”

“Elisabeth Rodgers’….performance is slow and ominous as it layers in scares and meditations on addiction…The story itself is unsettling, and Rodgers’s performance is compelling.”

“This book is as good as modern horror gets.”

“A dash of humor, real-life demons, complex characters, a heavy dose of the supernatural, and the kind of ending you never forget. This is high-grade horror.”

"A nostalgia trip to the laste-’90s indie-nihilism of Fight Club and Donnie Darko, in a story about addiction and mushrooms that let you see the dead.”
