Waterstones Says

Channelling a very American brand of folk horror, Power’s deeply unnerving chiller sees a girl visit her mother’s hometown searching for answers but discovering only terrifying secrets.

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Wilder Girls comes a twisty thriller about a girl whose past has always been a mystery - until she decides to return to her mother's hometown, where history has a tendency to repeat itself . . .

Ever since Margot was born, it's been just her and her mother. No answers to Margot's questions. No history to hold on to. Just the two of them, stuck in their run-down apartment, struggling to get along.

But that's not enough for Margot. She wants family. She wants a past. And when she finds a photograph pointing her to a town called Phalene, she leaves. But when Margot gets there, it's not what she bargained for.

Margot's mother left for a reason. But was it to hide her past? Or was it to protect Margot from what's still there?

Burn Our Bodies Down is a blistering horror-thriller from Rory Power that will grip you from its very first page, and won't let you go until long after you've put it down . . .

“Interesting”

This was good until the final third. I did like the characters but felt the tess relationship was underdeveloped and the ending was just a bit far fetched. The wilder girls by comparisons seemed more solid in how that... More
