After witnessing the death of her mother at a young age, Cecily LeClercq grows up hiding herself away in the remote Carolina wetlands. When a stranger arrives from Paris saying a distant elderly relative is desperate to see her before she dies, Cecily travels to an old chateau deep in the French woods. There she learns of an ancient curse that has consumed generations of her ancestors, personified by a vicious, ghostly wraith who emerges from the forest when the death of a LeClercq is near....
“Wheaton loads his narrative with shocking moments…the pace continuously escalates, and each of Cecily’s discoveries about her family’s past makes her more determined to understand the curse and to figure out how to survive it…an involving and fast-moving family-ghost thriller…” -- Kirkus Reviews
"Another absolute corker from Wheaton...if you loved EMILY ETERNAL and THE QUAKE CITIES, you won't be disappointed by WRAITH." -- Tony Healey, bestselling author of Hope's Peak and The Devil's Snare
"History, horticulture, and horror—what's not to love? Mark Wheaton's WRAITH is a gripping, gothic-mystery set in present-day France, imbued with a sense of dread that drips from the pages. Between the ancient family curse, the evil entity, and the puzzle-like structure of the unfolding plot, I was hooked until the very end." -- Staci Layne Wilson, author of the Immortal Confessions vampire book series
"Spanning continents and centuries, WRAITH is a uniquely modern take on the classic gothic ghost story." -- Dan Whitehead, author of Hex Loader and Frankenstein, Texas
