Mark Morris recommends

The Leaping (2010)
Tom Fletcher
"I haven't been so blown away by a horror debut since I first read Clive Barker's Books of Blood twenty-five years ago. The Leaping is everything that good fiction should be--it is compelling, relevant and original. . . . like a dark, corrupt fairytale, oozing with dread and ancient menace."
