Book Review: From Away by Deke Mackey


Impossibly ancient. Eternally patient.

Something is lurking in the cold, black waters surrounding Mossley Island. An arcane and eldritch horror. Hungry. Craving the flesh – and perhaps the very souls – of all who live there.

For fifty years it’s waited. As those who so valiantly defended the island against its last invasion have succumbed to age. Died off. Allowing it to fade from secret history into half-forgotten myth.

Now It’s mounting a new attack. It wants the island and this time… Its evil intentions will not be denied.

The first eerie chapter in a suspense-filled seven-part serial of buried secrets, dark places and the occult follows Dawn, a teenager from the mainland, as she accompanies her wayward father back to his hometown and the family he abandoned before she was born.

Hoping to understand where she comes from, Dawn gets more than she bargained for as she begins to uncover the island’s secret societies, a dark conspiracy that may endanger all of mankind, and her own shocking blood destiny.
