‘The stories Carroll creates have a deep, literary-grounded feel but they are entirely original. Her voice is unique and powerful and I, for one, am addicted to it.’ GUILLERMO DEL TORO

A contemporary gothic horror and comics classic, perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, Stranger Things and The Haunting of Hill House

I used to dream of Dragons.

Abby is settling into married life: making coffee, cooking for David and her stepdaughter Crystal, spending evenings curled up together in front of the TV. For a quiet woman without many friends, she’s proud of the life she has built, and desperately wants to believe they will all be happy.

But what really happened to Crystal’s mother, the artist who no-one speaks of? What secrets does their strange house by the water harbour, and what of Abby’s old dreams and fears, of Lady Grey, the Knight and the Dragons?

In her chilling return – a story of grief, ghosts, and the struggle to be true to oneself – Emily Carroll casts another unforgettable spell.
