So I very recently came across Keith Lee Morris's Travelers Rest and couldn't resist sharing it with you today. I mean, it's kind of a shame it isn't out in time for October horror reading but frankly I think it's going to make equally fabulous snowed in reading this winter. We'll see if you agree.
Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:
The Addisons-Julia and Tonio, ten-year-old Dewey, and ne'er-do-well Uncle Robbie-are driving home, cross-country, after collecting Robbie from detox. When a blizzard strikes outside the eerie town of Good Night, Idaho, they seek refuge at the Travelers Rest, a once-opulent but now crumbling hotel where, they soon discover, the laws of the universe are bent.
Once inside the hotel, the family is separated. Something mysterious, tied to a tragic event more than a century past, prevents them, day after day, from reuniting, until Julia is faced with an impossible choice. Can she save her family from the fate of becoming Souvenirs-those citizens trapped forever in magnetic Good Night-or disappearing entirely? What her choice entails is revealed in prose as dizzyingly beautiful as the mystical world Morris creates.
Well??? Am I right?!
Travelers Rest is due out from Little Brown in early January, plenty of time to mark your calendars or even add it to your holiday wish lists!
