Summary

My name is Niquette Delongpre and on the night before my mother's 47th birthday, my entire family vanished without a trace. Everyone assumed the swamp swallowed them. They were wrong....
Deep in the swamps outside of New Orleans, Niquette Delongpre and her family uncover a well on their property - a well that has roots all the way down into the soils of the Mississippi River. A well that brings ancient things to the surface - things that should have stayed buried.
When Niquette is exposed to a small parasite, it triggers in her mysterious and dangerous powers. As she tries to come to grips with these new abilities and what they might mean for her future, she realises that she is not alone. Someone else, someone who was exposed to the same mysterious parasite during a clandestine visit to the swamp, is also discovering his new talents, and he's not as nice as she is....

Critic reviews

"A creepy, intriguing and dangerously addictive supernatural novel." ( Sun)
"Rice's characters are complex and real, his dialogue pitch-perfect, and his writing intelligent and strong. He builds suspense beautifully as Marshall's malevolence reaches a crescendo of violence amid enduring philosophical questions about what it means to be human." ( Publisher’s Weekly)
"Christopher Rice has written an amazing horror novel with more twists and turns than a mountain road. You'll think you know your destination...but you'll be wrong." (Charlaine Harris)
"Christopher Rice never disappoints with his vivid people and places and masterful prose. He will hold you captive under his spell as his images and emotions become your own." (Patricia Cornwell)

Editing!!

The editing on this book is awful. Lines are repeated, stuttered and tripped over the repeated properly. It’s a shame because the story is good
