Sometimes no matter how vigilant you are, you can’t keep loved ones safe. — Dana McCluskey and her father know very well that there can be dangers around every corner. They wanted to keep Emmy safe. — But it is impossible to see some dangers coming. And there are those corners that you’d never see, out-of-the-way places just beyond our grasp where loved ones can get very lost — and the danger there is very real indeed.
“For Emmy” has been sitting in my Kindle since January of this year but I had only got around to reading it recently. What the hell was I waiting for, I asked myself when I finished it.
“For Emmy” was first published as a trade paperback in August 2011 and hardcover in September 2011 by Thunderstorm Books, it was then published for Kindle in January 2012.
It is a very dark, disturbing tale of a little girl that goes missing from her father’s used book store. She just seemingly disappears into thin air right under the noses of her older sister and father.
She magically reappears four months later, but it is not the same little girl. She barely speaks, has moments of severe screaming and is terribly frightened all the time.
When her father and sister discover the truth about what happened to Emmy, they do whatever they can to fix it in the hope of getting the real Emmy back.
“For Emmy” will leave its mark on you long after you put it down. Mary has this uncanny ability to draw you into her stories with life like characters and haunting prose.
And for all you “Hollower” and “Found You” fans, you will absolutely love “For Emmy”. She also has the third book in the “The Hollower Trilogy” coming out from Thunderstorm Books called “The Triumvirate”. Can’t wait to read that one.
I for one am very glad Mary is continuing to put out new fiction, she is one of the best in the business and “For Emmy” is one of the best stories I’ve read this year and give it my highest recommendation.
