When a young woman goes missing near the sleepy Icelandic village of Vík, police inspector John Ward wants to cancel the Northern Lights Festival after his sole witness describes the kidnapper as a “Shadow”. However, police commissioner Kári Ingason overrules him, fearing the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the village. Scientist Rakel Atladóttir and her peculiar assistant Rúnar offer to help Ward investigate the disappearance, plunging the trio into a fight for survival, with the fate of humanity in jeopardy against a malevolent cosmic horror…
“A feast of good old-fashioned horror, with conflicted characters,
a gooey monster, and plenty of blood and guts.”

“I enjoyed the well-drawn characters, people with real flaws and fears, and loved the setting around the caves of Vik, Iceland.If you like traditional horror, stories that are scary, fun and even a bit pulpy, The Blackening is for you!”

“I’ve been scared of the dark before but never my own shadow… until now!
The Blackening will leave you empty.”
