Growing up in the endless summer of Australia, Sara Clancy was always fascinated with the macabre. It gave her an opportunity to satisfy her cravings for all things spooky and strange, and indulge in a world of mystery.
Currently living near a beach she never visits, she enjoys writing horror, spending most of her pay checks on books, and devotes a great deal of time and energy to fictional characters. She also enjoys talking through movies, but understands that’s a private indulgence.

If Marigold can’t save her own soul, she’ll be the first in a sea of victims.
Marigold La Roux finds herself trapped with the raging demon locked inside her own skin. As it hunts down the last shards of her soul, Marigold is flung from one twisted reality to the next. Lost in a maze of madness and memories, Marigold needs to reclaim her body before it’s too late.
While Ma is willing to sacrifice Marigold to save millions, Louis isn’t ready to give up just yet. Led by a ghost that’s keen on destruction, Louis travels to the notorious La Roux plantation, a place forever scared by the evil birthed within it. But not everyone is eager to bring the origins of the family curse to light. With Louis inside, sinister forces plot to never let him leave the plantation … in body or soul.
Past and present collide as Marigold and the demon battle for control. Old ghosts rise, ancient powers claw their way into the waking world, and forgotten horrors carve new paths of destruction. Hell is opening and it’s looking for a soul to take.

The La Roux ancestral home may be gone, but the horror it once sheltered is still alive.
Marigold is hunted, tormented by a demon that hungers for her to kill. She doesn’t know how much longer she can resist. In a desperate attempt to keep her sanity, Marigold flees to the rusted remains of a paddle steamer, deep in the heart of the Louisiana bayous. Here, the only people she encounters are long since dead. The ghosts that haunt the boat are possessive and territorial. They keep the demon from entering. But there are many lost souls that roam the backwaters. They are drawn to the boat, to the life on board. Marigold’s hiding place may soon become her grave.
Isolated and trapped, Marigold and Louis fight to resist the sinister forces mounting around them. But when night falls and the fog rolls in, the ghosts become hungry and restless. A sacrifice must be made. Her sanity or her life; they won’t allow her to keep both.
