Editor Anne Sowards introduces Maplecroft, by Cherie Priest


Editor Anne Sowards introduces the all-new dark fantasy series from the award-winning author of Boneshaker in a note to readers.Though she was declared innocent at her trial, Lizzie Borden is still suspected of brutally murdering her parents. She and her sister retreat to their mansion to escape gossip and prying eyes, but the evil that consumed Lizzie's parents is still out there...

Dear Readers:

Lizzie Borden got a bad rap. Everyone thinks they know her, that she’s a murderer, that she killed her parents–there’s even a rhyme about it:

Lizzie Borden took an axe

And gave her mother forty whacks.

When she saw what she had done,

She gave her father forty-one.

But what if she had a reason? What if Lizzie killed her parents, not because she was a homicidal maniac, but because her parents were possessed by unspeakable evil? And that killing them was the only way to stop the horror growing within them from spreading to others?

This is the premise of Cherie Priest’s chilling and atmospheric dark historical fantasy novel, Maplecroft.
