In his absorbing new book, “The Tainted Five” (published by Xlibris AU), author Phillip Turner crafts a dark, beguiling story inspired by a combination of his real world experiences and the depth of his imagination. This psychological thriller is about a young girl that gets sent to a foster home, which sets off a series of events that will shape her and the people surrounding her.

Readers are introduced to the brave young orphan Ellie who has grown up in a shared home all her life. When she is sent to her new family, she will unknowingly begin an adventure that will define her and the people around her. Ellie will be tested in ways she never thought possible. In this book, readers will join her journey as she faces her greatest demons and descends into the darkness, where one begins to question what is real and what fantasy is.

“I believe readers will be drawn in by the comparisons they can make with the elements of the story,” the author points out. “They may identify with a certain character or have found themselves in a similar predicament. I feel that I have brought a fresh perspective to what may first seem as a regular coming of age tale.”

“The Tainted Five” places a dark yet fresh spin on a coming of age tale, mixing in psychological suspense and paranormal intrigue.
