House of Skin
by Jonathan Janz
Annabel Carver once ruled a mansion called Watermere and the forest surrounding it. Beautiful, beguiling, and absolutely evil, Annabel possessed a lust for power that knew no bounds and thirst for violence that plunged Watermere into darkness.
Until someone murdered her.
Now Paul Carver has inherited the mansion and all its secrets. He dreams of becoming an author and believes Watermere is the ideal place to create a terrifying horror novel. When he meets Julia Merrow, a mysterious librarian who lives in the forest near Watermere, he thinks he has found the woman of his dreams.
But Annabel has brought the two together. And she’s hungry to live again.
