Inhaltsangabe zu „Wink“ von Eric Trant

In this thriller set in a rural Gulf Coast town, twelve-year-old Marty Jameson finds refuge in the attic from his mother’s abusive rages. But only during the day. At night the attic holds terrors even beyond what he witnesses in his home. With a family made up of a psychotic mother, a drug-dealing father and a comatose older brother withering away in the spare bedroom, Marty feels trapped. Next door, wheel-chair bound Sadie Marsh obsessively watches Marty’s comings and goings from her bedroom window, despite her mother’s warning about the evil in that house. Evil which appears to Sadie as huge black-winged creatures. Marty, emotionally torn by the violence and dysfunction in his family, is drawn to Sadie and her kindly mother. But if he is to save his new friend from the supernatural horror threatening them all, Marty must transform himself from victim to hero. And to do so, he must first confront what lurks hidden in the shadows of his attic.

    I love coming-of-age horror stories, and this book is another truly fine specimen of the subject.The characters, their homes and neighborhood are introduced in a way that you can not only envision, but see, smell and feel it all like standing immediately nearby the whole time. The summer heat with lazy swirling dust motes, stale air and the ever-present stink of the cluttered house or even the unbearable heat of fire at the end of the book - reading this book, I was constantly reminded of some King works by the way the author managed to make it all feel so real.Wink is the outstanding story of a young anti-hero, who suffers from his negligent and violent parents. He must outgrow his human boundaries and turn into something supernatural in order to defy an ancient evil. Highly recommended.
