""Tell the story to its end," says Eren with a grin.""His yellow eyes are glowing like embers in the night."""When I reach the end," I say, "what happens? You'll have the whole story.""""Hmm," he says, looking at me and licking his lips with a dry, grey tongue. "What happens then? Why don't we find out?""People are keeping secrets from Oli. His mum has brought him to stay with his aunt and uncle in the countryside, but nobody will tell him why his dad isn't there, too. Why hasn't he come with them? Has something happened? Why won't anyone talk about it? Oli has a hundred questions, and only an old, empty house in the middle of an ancient forest for answers. But then he finds a secret of his own: there is a creature that lives in the attic...Eren is not human.Eren is hungry for stories.Eren has been waiting for him.With Eren to listen, Oli starts to make sense of what's happening. But Eren is powerful, and though he's willing to help Oli, he's not willing to do it for free; he wants something in return. Oli must make a choice: he can learn the truth -- but to do so he must abandon himself to Eren's world, forever.From striking new voice Simon P.

Echoing the surreal quality and settings of David Almond's books, this novel adeptly mixes fantasy with reality and leaves some pressing questions unanswered." --"Publishers Weekly""Debut British-American aut
