When nine-year-old Henry Thorne miraculously survives an accident that claims his father’s life, he finds himself… changed. Upon waking from a coma, he can now read people’s thoughts, “see” their feelings. While Henry recuperates—and grapples with his newfound abilities—his family is compensated a small fortune by those responsible for the accident.
The highly publicized case catches the eye of lifelong criminal Jim Cady, who hatches a plan to kidnap Henry for ransom. When Jim’s plan goes into motion, Henry is taken, hidden in an abandoned farmhouse surrounded by miles of forest, while Jim and his crew wait for the drop.
But upon arrival, Henry’s abilities alert him to something surprising and horrible:
They are not alone.
Henry connects with a strange force living in the woods and uses that bond to wreak havoc against his captors. Unknown to Henry, however, is that the ancient being has its own reasons for wanting the interlopers gone.
There is something hidden beneath the house, tucked away in the dark, damp root cellar… waiting for its return.About the Author:
