This is Boccacino's first book, and he is already gaining a rep as one fine writer of supernatural prose. This period piece mixes fantasy and truth into an eerie blend as Boccacino takes the reader into the mind of a woman who slowly experiences a series of very strange occurrences.

The Darrow boys' nanny is found mysteriously murdered, and Charlotte Markham, the recently-hired governess, must step in to keep the boys safe. It's not an easy gig. During a simple outing in the forest, they cross over into The Ending, the place for The Things That Cannot Die. The boys are coaxed into the House of Darkling, a wondrous and dangerous place where strange creatures who aren't quite human live.

The story will scare and enchant you as it unfolds. The master of Darkling is a powerful underlord, and the story here not only affects the characters on the page but their entire world.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2012
