"I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads”

Karl Drinkwater's debut novel of atmospheric, on the edge of your seat horror survival.
Three newcomers to a remote Welsh island village all looking for the perfect escape from life, however find that is populated by an insane Lord and a village full of creepy locals; what could possibly go wrong?!?!?!? As you work your way through the book the main question on your mind will be "Who will survive the night?"
For me I found Turner to be a cross between the film "Friday 13th" and the TV series "American Horror Story: Asylum"; both of which I really enjoyed before I read this book, so definitely not for the squeamish! Fast paced action with every page just as griping as the previous.

Karl Drinkwater Many thanks for this. It's fun to see that you finished it quickly - a few people have read the whole thing in one night! I like the two film comparisons, being a fan of both of them myself. If you're interested, there are some other influences listed at http://karldrinkwater.blogspot.com/20...
