Desperate to reinvent herself, after a failed relationship and the suffocating affection of an overprotective father, Randall Austin moves to Key Biscayne near Miami to start afresh. But family secrets are aplenty, and Randall’s past is about to catch up with her.
With her, Randall takes a box that once belonged to her mother. Strange things happen to her and people around her are dying. Not sure if it’s her overactive writer’s imagination or the onset of madness, she is soon to realise that the box holds an evil Talisman. It’s a dangerous force with a powerful Hunger which needs sating, and nothing is going to get in its way.
Meanwhile, Lieutenant Sheilds’ men are on the case, however, with no clues or leads he suggests dropping the case, but determined rookie Michael wants answers and is assigned to continue the investigation.



Ms. Stone has written a tense, paranormal thriller filled with interesting settings, a plot that deviates into a labyrinth of possibilities and an enterprising female lead whose life becomes surrounded in murder, voodoo and black magic. By blending all the twists and turns of a whodunit with a terrifying zombie astral and a splash of romance, Ms. Stone has successfully written an exciting, well-paced novel in which Randall must come to terms with her past, and face her fears as she is plunged into an unknown world where betrayal, and danger lurk around every corner and her survival depends on those she can trust. If only she knew who to trust.

  1. I like it when, as you say, a plot feels like a labyrinth of different possibilities. That's what thrillers should be like!! Sadly, it's not always the case.
