HALCYON is the answer for all Americans who want to escape, but paradise isn't what it seems. A beautiful island in the middle of Lake Ontario?a self-sustaining community made up of people who want to live without fear, crime, or greed. Halcyon is run by Valerie Kemp, aka Mother Moon, benevolent and altruistic on the outside, but hiding an unimaginable darkness inside. She has dedicated her life to the pursuit of Glam Moon, a place of eternal beauty and healing. And she believes the pathway there can only be found at the end of pleasure. On the heels of tragedy, Martin Lovegrove moves his family to Halcyon. A couple of months, he tells himself, to retreat from the chaos and grind. He soon begins to suspect there is something beneath Halcyon's perfect veneer and sets out to discover the truth?however terrible it might be?behind the island and its mysterious founder, Mother Moon.

Professional reviews

"Martin Lovegrove takes his two daughters to an island called Halcyon to heal from a terrible tragedy. This psychological thriller gives narrator George Newbern an opportunity to showcase his skill at keeping the tension high amid what at first appears to be a bucolic setting. Once Martin learns the truth about Mother Moon, the owner of the island, he realizes dark forces are at work, and his children are in danger. Newbern ramps up the pace, giving the dialogue a staccato rhythm that transfixes the listener as Martin battles the evil that emerges. Graphic gore and paranormal incidents will satisfy fans of horror fiction. Newbern's strength lies in his judicious control of these effects. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
