Darkmere is the dark, romantic and evocative YA novel from debut author Helen Maslin. Following the lives of two girls a century apart, the novel combines chills and romance to create a truly gripping read. Prepare to become completely immersed in Kate and Elinor’s lives as separately they uncover the secrets of Darkmere …

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher I’m mesmerized by Helen Maslin’s frighteningly real blend of modern romance, Gothic ghost story and a beautiful charmed and doomed tale of lost love from long ago. You know the feeling, when you can’t wait for daylight to dawn and it’s going to be all right again, then suddenly it’s so, so NOT ! I loved it. No thanks, I don’t feel like going to the beach today. Or ever again!

Synopsis

Darkmere by Helen Maslin

A castle. A curse. One dangerous holiday. Leo has invited Kate and a few friends to spend the summer at his inheritance, Darkmere Castle: as wild and remote as it is beautiful. Kate thinks it will be the perfect place for her and Leo to get together - but instead, she's drawn into the dark story of a young nineteenth-century bride who haunts the tunnels and towers of the house ...and whose curse now hangs over them all.

About the Author

Helen Maslin lives in Cheltenham with her husband and two sons. Darkmere Summer is her first novel. She has unnaturally red hair and thick spectacles. She is generally described as 'arty'...and to be honest - sometimes as 'completely unreasonable'. She writes because she wants to be Neil Gaiman. Or Sally Gardner. Or maybe Laini Taylor. Or E Lockhart would be good too! Helen likes coffee and cake, Roy Lichtenstein's art and Peter Lorre's voice...
