Sallow Bend, by Alan Baxter

About the Book:

Something old and deadly has awoken.

When two teenagers go missing from the small, rural town of Sallow Bend, the residents come together to search for them. Little do they suspect that finding the wayward girls will be the start of their problems. An old evil is rising, and only one man seems to realize that everyone is in danger and this is not the first time it’s happened. With the carnival in town, people want to have a good time, but for many, this will be the worst time of their lives.

"Sometimes when kids get lost in the woods, they come out again. Sometimes that’s not a good thing. Sometimes they’re not alone anymore. Baxter’s Sallow Bend has more than a touch of King about it." - Angela Slatter, award-winning author of All the Murmuring Bones

"(Sallow Bend) is an immersive page-turner where details about the characters and the eerie history of the place are effortlessly fleshed out. Paired with the unceasingly intensifying dread, the story quickly escalates from unsettling to terrifying. Baxter, already an award-winning horror author in his native Australia, seems poised to take over America as well." - Booklist
