9781599907451: The Dead of Winter

After Michael's parents die, he is invited to stay with his guardian in a desolate country house. He begins to suspect something is not quite right on the day he arrives when he spots a mysterious woman out in the frozen mists. But little can prepare him for the solitude of the house itself. His guardian is rarely seen, and there's a malevolent force lurking in an old hallway mirror. As the chilling suspense builds, Michael realizes that the house and its grounds harbor many more secrets-both dead and alive.

Review:

Praise for Tales of Terror from the Black Ship: 'A fantastic page-turner, with a really scary ending' Independent on Sunday Praise for Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror: 'Scare yourselves silly ... recalls the best of Edward Gorey in wickedness and humour ... Perfect for reading aloud' Observer Praise for Dead of Winyter: 'A superb little ghost story ... it's quite chilling, and has the capacity to give children a pleasingly good scare. It would make a great book for reading aloud over a series of nights' SFX 'Open a Chris Priestley Gothic ghost story and what seeps from the pages, like mist from a desolate marsh, is his sheer love of the genre. This passion not only shapes a gripping story with well-rounded characters, but lifts the level of writing well above similar Victorian chillers ... Deliciously creepy with lots of twists and turns to keep young readers on edge' Daily Mail
