Red Eye launched in 2015 for YA fans who were missing out on Point Horror. So far there have been six titles with each author writing to a different strand of the genre, from ghosts, to gore, to psychological thrillers. In Sharon Gosling’s Fir, we turn to Scandi noir!

Fir is set in an isolated corner of Sweden. Combining local mythology, insanity and the disturbing mysteries of an old plantation house, it is an atmospheric horror story that will chill the reader to the bone.

Cut off from civilization by the harsh winter, the Stromberg family shelter in their new home. With only a grudging housekeeper and increasingly withdrawn parents for company, there is nothing to do but to explore. But things start to get even more unsettling, there are figures in the ancient pine forests and they’re closing in. With nothing but four walls between them and the evil that’s outside, the family watch and wait for the snow to melt. But there’s an even great danger lurking…

“If madness had a shade, it would
be white. White as far as the eye can see.
White until it reaches right around the world
and taps you on the shoulder.

You’d never think there could be so many
colours in the snow. But there are. It just takes
time to see them. Your eyes have to adjust.
Once you’ve been out here a while,
you can see them. You can see them all.

We have been out here for a long, long while.”

Fir is published 9 February 2017
