Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A chance meeting between fifteen-year-old Petra and old Mr. Century unleashes a train of terrifying supernatural events. Long ago, Mr. Century's beloved young bride-to-be was killed in a fire and he has lived a hermit's life ever since in his great mansion, Century Hall. As a little girl, Petra had made up a spell to ward off "the Darkling", as she named the almost-human, nighttime shadow cast on her bedroom ceiling by a street light. Now, because Petra reminds Mr. Century of his lost fiancee, he tries to take over Petra's spirit through the Darkling. Highly dramatic and wholly original, The Darkling, filled with mysticism and strange twists and turns, will keep readers involved from beginning to end.
