Dark and Mysterious

From encounters with Faerie to things that go bump in the night, these stories will thrill and enchant you.

Murkmere by Patricia Elliott

A creepy historical retelling of "The Swan Maid" that's a dank brew of spooky old houses, secret knowledge, otherworldly magic, and political rebellion. So good.

Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle

My other most favorite book of all time. Read it. Twice.

The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper

A true classic, of world-shaking, epic proportions--a splendid entry in a marvelous, not-to-be-missed series.

The Watch House by Robert Westall

A haunted lighthouse on the English coast. Need I say more?

The Bone Doll's Twin by Lynn Flewelling

Deliciously creepy changeling story, in a high fantasy landscape. A great read!

Midnight is a Place by Joan Aiken

Dark, Dickensian gothic, wonderfully miserable. A delightful book just dripping with awfulness.
