Product Description

Product Description

In the deepest vale of Crepuscule’s Cradle, in the cul-de-sac at the end of Direful Hollow Road, is a once grand Folk-Victorian home known as The Habersham House. It’s a place haunted by far more than rot and neglect - evil dwells here, an evil that craves children.

Eight-year-old Scott Michaels-Greene has a fascination for tales of the strange and unusual, especially local folklore. His favorite story is the one about Habersham House; a ruined old place where many curious children have disappeared.

Hours away from Crepuscule’s Cradle, in Philadelphia, author Radley Barrette has just lost the love of his life to a random act of violence. Amongst his endowments from Danny’s estate is an old house in the backwoods of Pennsylvania, Habersham House. Though grief stricken at leaving behind the only home he and Danny had ever known, he knows he cannot remain in the city. Besides, the isolation may be just what he needs to clear his mind of the writer’s block he’s suffering from.

Crepuscule’s Cradle is not as he imagined. The locals are inhospitable. The skeletal forest surrounding it is as unwelcoming as the town. And the house itself – there is something menacing, something angry inhabiting it with him, and it’s hungry. Radley’s world slowly begins to unravel; the fringes of his reality begin to fray. In the midst of his breakdown, a local boy with an unhealthy fascination for Habersham House begins sneaking around and the evil residing within has taken notice.

Blending fantasy with horror, Crepuscule’s Cradle is the darkest of fairy tales. The morbidity of classic folklore and contemporary style weaves a web of slowly encroaching unease. Radley Barrette’ winter bound home is more than a haunted house, and Crepuscule’s Cradle is more than a mere horror tale. It’s a bedtime story that will pull you into its icy embrace, lull you into a disquiet state, and leave you shivering in the dark.

By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In Joshua Skye’s novella Cradle, Radley, a grieving gay man, comes to a small town to live in the house left to him by his deceased partner. But The Habersham House has a dark history; young children have been mysteriously disappearing from the area near the house for years. Radley knows little of the situation, but he’s about to find out. Because he will soon cross paths with Scotty, a little boy determined to investigate the house—and the monster that lurks in the woods near it—after another boy goes missing.

Cradle is a quick read that taps into the kind of eerie, supernatural suspense of Stephen King, complete with a small town, a disturbing legend of a specter in the woods, and a little boy whose curiosity gets the best of him. Balancing the innocence of the child character is the big city gay man who thinks getting away from it all is a good thing…despite the warning of his friend about small town life for a gay man. There’s a nasty little twist at the end of this one. The town and history of the house makes for perfect horror, so I hope the author revisits both.
