Starred Review. YA thriller author Petrucha (Split) combines the paranormal with the historical for this unique, page-turning adventure. While plowing his meager plot in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Puritan colonist Nathan Fall digs up an undead creature that turns him, his wife, and their son into vampire-like monsters. Nathan’s father, Atticus, kills Nathan and Mary, but lets young Jeremiah live, hoping he can be saved from rank bestiality by the depth of his intellect and insatiable curiosity. Jeremiah becomes obsessed with finding a way to regain his humanity, no matter the cost in money, effort, or time. Over 150 years, he travels to the shores of Egypt, the rocky coast of Brittany, and the gates of Eden itself in a quest for understanding and redemption that will thrill fans of biblical horror and historical detail.
