A gripping combination of horror and the supernatural comes this way from author Philip Jackson in The Coven. Readers will be immersed into a whole new realm of demons, witches, shape shifters and werewolves as they sift through the pages of this immensely enthralling read.

The Coven begins with the Stark Family leaving their hometown for a two-week vacation to Vermont’s Burmingham. Tony and Kate Stark and their two children, Caleb and Mellissa, never had the idea that it was a vacation that would haunt them for the rest of their lives. While the family explores the island on Lake Hogan, Tony finds an ancient book that unleashes the demon Ariton and his legion. As a result, the demon begins to possess Tony. Kate calls her witch friend Selene. Selene arrives with her fellow witches and eventually, a whole cast of colorful (and supernatural, too) characters arrive to help save Tony’s soul.

Readers, both the young and the old, will find themselves falling under Jackson’s spell of storytelling finesse. Jacksons paints a whole new picture of contemporary horror fiction but still maintains the top-notch quality of the genre in a traditional sense in The Coven.
