The Covering is a supernatural thriller by Miss Cheyenne Mitchell, the author of Syroia and In the Light of Darkness, is the story of Celia and Drew, two teenage sisters who are part of a loving family that is hiding something evil. Mitchell’s story is absolutely spellbinding, captivating readers with its exciting plot, compelling characters, and unexpected secrets.

Their family has moved from place to place, driven out by people and children who think that the girls and their family are strange, taunting them and throwing stones at them, the same children who were once their friends; “… eventually everything would change, and always because of our grandfather and the rest of our family members,” calling their grandfather a murderer and the rest of their family dangerous. In each town in which they live, there is always a series of mysterious disappearances that are traced back to their family members by the circumstantial evidence that each time someone disappears, they were last seen with a member of their family before being found “torn apart is if by a wild animal.”

As they grow older, the sisters realize that their family is not as normal as they believed that they were and their family’s reticence to talk about certain things starts to make sense to them. The girls are plagued by questions that they struggle to answer, asking themselves questions that include why their grandfather’s body was never found and if he is really dead. Celia and Drew discover a dark secret that the family has been hiding for years, changing their lives forever; “They harbored a dark and morally revolting secret. But it was nothing compared to the other diabolical secret that all of them guarded.”

As the plot unfolds and secrets are revealed, readers will not be able to put the book down, kept on the edges of their seats by the nail-biting tension. Mitchell’s story is unlike any other supernatural thriller that you have ever read, entertaining with suspense, mystery, and excitement. Indeed, a page-turning must-read.
