Praise for SUNDIAL

“Sundial is a heart-in-the-throat smash.” ―Joe Hill, New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman
“Ward is surely one of the most talented writers working in the thriller genre today. This book will haunt you.” ―Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Masterful…[A] must-read for fans of gothic literature and taut psychological thrillers.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“As if we needed further evidence, Sundial confirms Catriona Ward as one of the brightest stars in horror fiction. As compelling and unique a voice for the 21st century as Shirley Jackson was for the 20th. She’s brilliant.” ―Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Road of Bones and Ararat

“Holy moly, Sundial plumbs the psychological depths and traps of toxic relationships, expertly mixing suspense, shocks, and menace. It’s a wild, twisted family gothic unlike any you’ve read before, and one you won’t soon forget.” ―Paul Tremblay, author of Survivor Song and A Head Full of Ghosts

“This novel is reminiscent of the best of Shirley Jackson and Joyce Carol Oates, and I cannot think of higher praise.” ―Thomas Olde Heuvelt, author of Hex and Echo

“There are two things you must know about Sundial. First, it’s a great read, a genius piece of storytelling. But second, this is true horror, the horror of everyday life that we make ourselves blind to, horror that is brutal, truthful, terrifying. Catriona Ward knows horror.” ―Alma Katsu, author of The Fervor

“Catriona Ward has done it again with Sundial. Elegantly horrifying, this tale of a family’s darker-than-dark past drives the knife in deep and isn’t afraid to twist. It’s a desert-dust nightmare with a scorpion’s sting, and I LOVED it.” ―Emma Stonex, author of The Lamplighters

“It’s a cracker, even better than The Last House on Needless Street. It was dark, and unsettling, and creepy and enthralling.” ―Lisa Hall, bestselling author of The Party

“A deeply dark and unexpected tale about families, love, hate, the long shadow of the past, and the redemptive power of storytelling. Clever, poetic and immersive.” ―Araminta Hall, author of Imperfect Women

“Absolutely, stunningly, heartbreakingly wonderful. A wild beast of a book.” ―Virginia Feito, author of Mrs. March

She decides to take Callie back to her childhood home, to Sundial, deep in the Mojave Desert. And there she will have to make a terrible choice.

You can’t escape what’s in your blood…

What the hell did I just read ? This book will play with your mind !

Lock the doors and check them twice with this one.

We follow woman Rob, who wants only a normal life, Married to Irving, with two kids, a nice house in the suburbs. But as the reader peels back the pages, not is all is what it’s seams to be. Her husband is quite ruthless, and her oldest daughter is something all together not completely right. Trying to be a loving and caring mother to mother of two daughters, Callie and Annie. When Callie starts to show signs of darkness, Rob decides to take Callie to her childhood home in the Mojave Desert, Sundial.

Carrions Ward, delivers quite the atmospheric, entertaining, compelling, and unsettling read here that surpassed all my expectations. High on characterization, this book holds no punches, and had me totally invested in this story. The psychological aspects, revelations, suspense and thrills along with those brutal shocking twists and turns, definitely made me one happy and totally satisfied reader upon finishing this book.

The author is exceptional writer, a genius in creating an ominous menacing family filled horror novel. This is book that will get under your skin stay long after you close the book. A very dark and twisty psychological thriller. I Would recommend to those who enjoy and inhale horror stories.

Readers proceed with caution:

Graphic animal abuse, genetic experimentation, child abuse, domestic violence, bad seed siblings, and much more.
