Jericho: A Novel

Jericho: A Novel

Alex Gordon

Young Adult / Horror / Science Fiction

In this follow-up to the masterful debut Gideon, a young witch must risk death and damnation to defeat a powerful ancient evil. In unearthing her father’s secret past, Lauren Reardon discovered a shocking truth about herself. She is a Child of Endor, a sect of witches who believe they are the guardians of the “thin places”—areas across the globe where evil can seep through the divide between the worlds separating the living and the restless dead. At any time, she can be called upon to close one of these breaches and prevent demons from infiltrating our realm. When Lauren has a disturbing vision of an Oregon forest, she is drawn back to the familiar woods of the misty Pacific Northwest to investigate. Locals had long whispered about an abandoned logging camp known as Jericho—of the strange disappearances and eerie sounds heard in the woods deep in the night. But these ghost stories only hint at the true evil lurking within the camp’s dilapidated buildings, a primeval malevolence far more terrifying than Lauren’s darkest imaginings. And now, Lauren must face this evil, even if it takes her life . . . even if it costs her soul. **Review “A deliciously creepy paranormal thriller, Gideon sucks you in one step at a time until you are well and truly caught in the story. Highly recommended.” (Anne Bishop, New York Times bestselling author of the Black Jewels trilogy) “...Gideon delivers a fast-paced plot that makes you want to finish it in a day, even if you don’t have time. ...Gordon’s descriptions of the petty jealousies and the insular nature of a small town make this paranormal novel feel scarily realistic.” (Washington Post) “...An engaging and suspenseful story.” (Booklist) “Fast paced and filled with lively details, Gordon’s prose propels readers into a fantastical world that is haunting to the very end.” (Shelf Awareness) “Crisp and shiveringly disturbing prose, a solid plot, and well-developed characters all make for a deeply satisfying read.” (Publishers Weekly) “I definitely recommend Gideon to anyone who loves dark urban fantasy stories.” (Gizmo's Reviews) “A seductive work of paranormal horror that will draw readers into its cold and gloomy world. …This novel will thoroughly satisfy readers looking for suspense, horror and a grisly good time.” (Kirkus Reviews) From the Back Cover “A deliciously creepy paranormal thriller. . . .
