Villejeune, Florida. A secluded little town at the edge of a vast, eerie swamp. Far from prying eyes. Far from the laws of civilization. Here folks live by their own rules -- dark rites of altars and infants, candles and blood. Years ago the Andersons left town with a dream. Now they are back. To live out a nightmare. Something has been waiting for them. Something unspeakably evil. It feeds on the young and the innocent. And soon it will draw their teenage daughter into its unholy embrace.... From the Paperback edition.… (més)

Sixteen-year-old Kelly Anderson (from Atlanta) has been dreaming of a very old, sinister man trying to reach out to her for most of her life. She sometimes catches a glimpse of him in her mirror. Kelly also doesn’t feel like she fits in with the other kids. Eventually, an unhappy Kelly tries to commit suicide. Her adoptive parents (Mary and Ted) decide to go back home to Villejeune, Florida, to live with Ted’s father in his large house. One day Kelly meets another boy (Michael Sheffield) who seems to be experiencing the same thing she is (seeing the old man in the mirror). And she feels a connection with Michael. They like going to the swamp. They sometimes feel like it is calling to them. But what is happening deep in the swamp? Why do children gather? Who is the man known as the Dark Man?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a very entertaining read. I especially liked the great descriptions of the dark, murky swamps. They were very atmospheric. I liked Kelly and Michael, and Michael’s little sister Jenny (who I was worried for later in the book). The main characters were interesting, and the others… the swamp people, the evil Dark Man performing his rituals, were really eerie. The Dark Man was totally creepy. Another fine read by John Saul.

This was entertaining enough and quite a quick read, but I struggled a little with both the plot and the writing style. The former felt a bit easy and the mythology didn't really work for me, while the latter read more like YA than adult fiction to me. Nonetheless, I was happy to stick with it until the end.

Kelly, a 16 years old girl, grew up in Orlando. She has hallucinations of a dark, strange men. She decides to make an end of the hallucinations......and her own life! It didn't turn out the way Kelly wanted it to be and she survives. Her parents think it might be better, for kelly, to move to a little village, villejeune. Unfortunetly Kelly doesn't get less problems, Villejeune is where the trouble begins. You don't want to stop reading anymore, because the book holds your attention till the end. Even if you're not a horror/thriller fan you will not be disappointed by this. ( )

An entertaining, one time read. Interesting spin on "vampires" as well as youth, aging, and the soul.

Side note: My first time reading John Saul. ( )
