About this title

Synopsis:

There is a dark and isolated mansion, boarded-up and avoided, on a hill just beyond the town of Watch Point in New York's Hudson Valley. It has been abandoned too long and fallen into disrepair. It is called Harrow and it does not like to be ignored. But a new caretaker has come to Harrow. He is fixing up the rooms and preparing the house for visitors.... And when the body of a child has been found, used for some unknown ritual, at Harrow, what's been trapped inside the house has begun leaking like a poison into the village itself. A man who dreams of winter faces the icy horror within the house; a teenage girl sleeps too much, but when she awakens her nightmares will break loose within her flesh; a mother must confront the horror of her own children's secret dreams; a little boy faces the ultimate fear when the house calls to him; and a young woman must step into the terror of her past to keep Harrow from destroying everything she loves. The village has gone mad, and blood runs in the streets. Packs of rabid animals chase down those who remain; and teenage girls with axes and knives take out those who have hurt them; children of all ages commit savagery against their parents; and some within the village still lay in an unnatural sleep, their nightmares taking them into the house itself, touching those who have entered in order to stop the horror. And somewhere within the house a demented child waits for them with teeth like knives.
