As children, they played the Dark Game... When Nemo Raglan's father is murdered in one of the most vicious killings of recent years, Nemo must return to the New England island he thought he had escaped for good, Burnley Island...and the shadowy farmhouse called Hawthorn. But this murder was no crime of human ferocity. What butchered Nemo's father may in fact be something far more terrifying - something Nemo and his younger brother, Bruno, and sister, Brooke, have known since childhood. There are secrets buried on Burnley Island. Within the rooms of Hawthorn, beautiful Brooke Raglan has begun to go mad. She sees faces at the windows and wanders the night, trying to find what she believes is a monster. Bruno Raglan has wiped the memory of a terrible event from his mind. Now he compulsively picks apart Hawthorn and discovers that within its walls lies a forbidden secret. As he unravels the mysteries of his past and a terrible night of his childhood, Nemo witnesses something unimaginable...and sees the true face of evil...while Burnley Island comes to know the unspeakable horror that grows in the darkness. Here comes a candle to light you to bed... And here comes a chopper to chop off your head.
Mordred, Bastard Son is a 260 page Arthurian fantasy novel first published in 2006 and written by the award-winning authur Douglas Clegg. It is book one of the Mordred Trilogy. The summary by Alyson Books reads as follows: Conceived in violence... Born from royalty... Raised in exile. "My mother, Morgan le Fay, was called the Witch-Queen, and my father, Arthur, King of the Britons. Merlin taught me the Sacred Arts. And my lover was the greatest of knights... I was born bastard and prince, and hidden from the world as I came to manhood, but I will return to claim my throne" In this brilliant reimagining of the legends of King Arthur, a young monk becomes enthralled by the story that a wounded mysterious prisoner in his care begins to tell. That prisoner is Mordred, the traditional villain of Arthurian legend, and his story is one of ambition, power, and betrayal. "I came into this life during the Beltane Fires" he states, "and I was born to the caverns of the Lady of the Lake, and learned of life in the ancient forest of Broceliande." Mordred emerges as a heroic and romantic figure, torn between his powerful mother's desire for revenge against Arthur, his own conflicted feelings toward the father who betrayed him, and his passionate love affair with a knight in King Arthur's court. From his birth into his youth, Mordred's soul is forged by the great forces of the Arthurian world - and of the shadow-legend of a father who has sought the death of his only son. The first book in an epic series, Mordred, Bastard Son, sets the stage for a grand adventure of love, friendship, magick^ war, and triumph. In the hands of Bram Stoker Award-winning author Douglas Clegg, here is a fresh and dazzling chapter in the Arthurian canon.
When Jake Richmond learns that Naomi, his childhood sweetheart, met her death on the subway tracks in New York City, he embarks on a journey to discover the truth behind her untimely death.
From Douglas Clegg,New York Timesbestselling author ofIsis, comes a southern gothic tale of family secrets and games of innocence turned to darkness. For years, the Jackson family has vacationed at Rowena Wandigaux Lee's old Victorian house on Gull Island, a place of superstition and legend off the southern coast of the U. S. One particular summer, young Beau follows his cousin Sumter into a hidden shack in the woods--and christens this new clubhouse "Neverland. " Neverland has a secret history, unknown to the children. . . The rundown shack in the woods is the key to an age-old mystery, a place forbidden to all. But Sumter and his cousins gather in its dusty shadows to escape the tensions at their grandmother's house. Neverland becomes the place where children begin to worship a creature of shadows, which Sumter calls "Lucy. " All gods demand sacrifice. . . It begins with small sacrifices, little games, strange imaginings. While Sumter's games spiral out of control, twisting from the mysterious to the macabre, a nightmarish presence rises among the straggly trees beyond the bluffs overlooking the sea. And when Neverland itself is threatened with destruction, the children's games take on a horrifying reality--and Gull Island becomes a place of unrelenting terror.
From the dark imagination of Douglas Clegg comes an epic tale of horror, spanning twenty years in the lives of four friends--witnesses to unearthly terror. The high desert town of Palmetto, California, has turned toxic after 20 years of nightmares. In Los Angeles, a woman is tormented by visions from a chilling past, and a man steps into a house of torture. On the steps of a church, a young woman has been sacrificed in a ritual of darkness. In New York, a cab driver dreams of demons while awake. And a man who calls himself the Desolation Angel has returned to draw his old friends back to their hometown--a town where, two decades earlier, three boys committed the most brutal of rituals, an act of such intense savagery that it has ripped apart their minds. And where, in a cavern called No Man's Land, something has been waiting a long time for those who stole something more precious than life itself. (from back book cover)
