Mary SanGiovanniabout this book: This book was inspired by my feelings toward my son -- how I would go to the ends of the Earth for him -- and toward his absent father. It is about a young man who discovers he has a daughter he never knew about, but she's trapped in his very surreal, very dangerous hometown of Thrall, NJ. If you're a fan of Dark City, Silent Hill, Evil Within, and/or the works of H.P. Lovecraft, I think you'll enjoy this book.
Cover art is by the amazing and awesome Vincent Chong, who captured exactly what one of Thrall's monsters looks like.
What others have said about Thrall:
• "Thrall is a feast of both visceral and existential horror – the gut tightens and the mind reels. Mary Sangiovanni joins that select cadre of women writers who are ignoring the safe old tropes and pushing the genre in new directions." — F. Paul Wilson, Author of REPAIRMAN JACK series
• "Not a dull moment. A wonderfully told tale that starts out as a very creepy haunted town story that turns out to be so much more. Highly recommended" — Amazon reviewer
• "I rarely give a 5 star rating unless something totally grabs my attention from start to finish, and this book did. I would recommend this story to any monster loving horror fan." — Amazon review
• "SanGiovanni's characters are vivid, their stories heartfelt and their terror contagious as they do battle with a supernatural threat that just may be intent on spawning. This is by far Ms. SanGiovanni's best novel to date, and I for one am ever hopeful that there will be many more!" — Amazon review
