The Waking Dark

Written by Robin Wasserman | Narrated by Mark Deakins
In the small town of Oleander, Kansas, a shocking wave of violence sends the community spiraling toward destruction. Can the survivors of the killing day manage to ward off the darkness before it engulfs them all? “A horror story worthy of Stephen King” (Booklist).


The Waking Dark is “a horror story worthy of Stephen King” (Booklist) and “a book you won’t soon forget” (Cassandra Clare, author of the Mortal Instruments series)-perfect for readers of Gillian Flynn and Rick Yancey.

They called it the killing day. Twelve people murdered, in the space of a few hours, their killers also all dead by their own hand … except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town.

Something is waking in the sleepy town of Oleander, Kansas-something dark and hungry that lives in the flat earth and the open sky, in the vengeful hearts of its upstanding citizens. As the town begins a descent into blood and madness, five survivors of the killing day are the only ones who can stop Oleander from destroying itself.

They have nothing in common. They have nothing left to lose. And they have no way out. Which means they have no choice but to stand and fight, to face the darkness in their town-and in themselves.
