The Leaping

A novel by

British Fantasy Society Best Novel (nominee)
Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful (and rich) Jennifer comes into his life he thinks he has finally found his ticket out of there. Trouble is that his boss is interested in Jennifer as well, and there's something strangely bestial about him...So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion out in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control on a seemingly neverending night, they must face up to the terrifying possibility that not all their guests may be human - and some of them want to feed. An astonishing and innovative blend of horror, folktale and disturbing realism, The Leaping is the first instalment in what is shaping up to be a genre-defining series.

Genre: Horror

Praise for this book

"A book that's stiff with foreboding and dread right from the start. . . . It's a literary, literate horror novel--and has a mordant, knowing, blackly ironic style to it. But it's relentless, too, in its avowed intention of scaring the life out of its readers, with everything it can throw at us." - Paul Magrs

"I haven't been so blown away by a horror debut since I first read Clive Barker's Books of Blood twenty-five years ago. The Leaping is everything that good fiction should be--it is compelling, relevant and original. . . . like a dark, corrupt fairytale, oozing with dread and ancient menace." - Mark Morris
