Synopsis

Stephen King’s It meets Stranger Things in a tender and terrifying coming-of-age tale of haunted houses and the monster at the door. Noah Turner’s family are haunted by monsters that are all too real, strange creatures that visit them all: His bookish mother Margaret; Lovecraft-obsessed father Harry; eldest sister Sydney, born for the spotlight; the brilliant but awkward Eunice, a gifted writer and storyteller – the Turners each face their demons alone. When his terminally-ill father becomes obsessed with the construction of an elaborate haunted house – the Wandering Dark – the family grant his last wish, creating themselves a legacy, and a new family business in their grief.

But families don’t talk about the important things, and they try to shield baby Noah from horrors, both staged and real. As the family falls apart, fighting demons of poverty, loss and sickness, the real monsters grow ever closer. Unbeknownst to them, Noah is being visited by a wolfish beast with glowing orange eyes.

Noah is not the first of the Turners to meet the monster, but he is the first to let it into his room…
