A Darkly Disturbing Occult Horror Trilogy – Book 2
Book 1 – Father of Lies
Book 2 – Tanners Dell
Book 3 – Magda
Following the hypnosis of violently disturbed psychiatric patient, Ruby Dean, an unholy dark force was unleashed on the medical staff who tried to help her. Now only one of the original team remains – Ward Sister, Becky.
Despite her fiancé, D.I. Ross, being unconscious and many of her colleagues either dead or critically ill, Becky is determined to rescue Ruby’s twelve year old daughter from a similar fate to her mother. But no one asking questions in the desolate mining village Ruby descends from ever comes to a good end. And as the diabolical history of the area is gradually revealed, it seems the evil invoked is now both real and contagious.
Don’t turn out the lights!
I highly recommend reading Father of Lies which is the first novel in the trilogy before reading this one as there is a lot of background that you need to familiarise yourself with and its also a great read.
The story starts where it finished in the first book. Becky finds herself pretty much on her own and has to enlist help from others in her attempt to bring down a cult and save Alice, Ruby’s daughter. Only problem is, anyone that tries to uncover the dark forces tend not to fair to well and dark and disturbing things start to happen to them.
I have to say as much as I understood Becky’s determination to put an end to the horrors that were happening to her and people close to her, I certainly wouldn’t have thanked her if she had turned up on my doorstep! You just know that things are never going to end well and my heart was literally in my mouth as horrible things started to happen to many of the characters.
This would really make a great horror film. I could easily visualise a lot of the horrors that were unfolding in front of me which was actually quite scary. It’s a bit hard to hide behind a cushion when your reading a book!
Tanners Dell is a brilliant second book in a truly gripping trilogy. It is seriously creepy and will scare the bejeezus out of you! Brilliant!
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
