Elizabeth Haynes recommends
The Magpies (2013)
(Magpies, book 1)
Mark Edwards
"Mark Edwards achieves what other writers yearn for, by creating characters that genuinely feel like real people, individuals you know personally–and then puts them into the scariest of situations so that we cannot help but suffer with them. Edwards takes the places that should feel safe and subverts them, shifting the ground beneath our feet, until we’re left clinging to the book, hoping against hope for a positive conclusion. There’s something deeply unsettling about The Magpies – and that’s exactly as it should be."
