Ound inside the Memory WoodAs her abductor’s behaviour grows erratic Elissa realises that outwitting strange lonely Elijah is her only hope of survival Their cat and mouse game of deception and betrayal will determine both their fates and whether either of them will ever leave the Memory Wood WHAT READERS ARE SAYING'Very very clever''Brilliantly written''So tense''It’s going to be one of those books that I remember for a long time'. Thirteen year old chess prodigy Elissa Mirzoyan is abducted in the middle of a tournament after leaving the venue to fetch one of her possessions from the car The kidnapper nicknamed The Ghoul by Elissa thrust her into the back of his van and spirited her away to The Memory Wood When she wakes from her slumber she realises that she is chained and being held captive and notices she is covered in bruises She wonders how she will escape her godawful situation and her only hope is if long term memory wood resident twelve year old Elijah decides to come to her rescue However young Elijah is extremely lonely and isolated from the world and he decides he wants to keep Elissa close to him for his own selfish needs It soon becomes clear that both Elijah and his brother Kyle are very odd and complex characters with many dark secrets to hide Can Elissa persuade Elijah to free herThis is a chillingly macabre and disturbing tale and it got under my skin so effectively that I actually dreamed about the story It captivates and enthrals from first chapter to last and was gruesomely twisty and superbly plotted The tension was expertly ratcheted up and the underlying mystiue and foreboding atmosphere was a large part of why the book ended up feeling so deliciously dark creepy and sinister The Memory Wood is a complex and accomplished novel with an ominous fairytale vibe to it and I was stunned by Ms Lloyd’s ability to elevate the book above the formulaic run of the mill standard often experienced in the genre If you're a fan of thrillers that move at a swift pace have a cast of intriguing characters and consistently whip you up into an exciting frenzy then I feel this should be on the list of all self proclaimed crime connoisseurs I expect this to become one of the biggest thrillers of 2020 as it certainly deserves to be I cannot recommend this highly enough Many thanks to Bantam Press for an ARC
