The new novel everyone's been waiting for from bestselling author Michelle Paver. "Something has been let loose..." In Edwardian Suffolk, a manor house stands alone in a lost corner of the Fens: a glinting wilderness of water whose whispering reeds guard ancient secrets. Maud is a lonely child growing up without a mother, ruled by her repressive father. When he finds a painted medieval devil in a graveyard, unhallowed forces are awakened. Maud's battle has begun. She must survive a world haunted by witchcraft, the age-old legends of her beloved fen and the even more nightmarish demons of her father's past. Spanning five centuries, Wakenhyrst is a darkly gothic thriller about murderous obsession and one girl's longing to fly free by the bestselling author of Dark Matter and Thin Air. Wakenhyrst is an outstanding new piece of story-telling, a tale of mystery and imagination laced with terror. It is a masterwork in the modern gothic tradition that ranges from Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker to Neil Gaiman and Sarah Perry.

A weak Pick for this Gothic-esque tale. It had atmosphere by the bucketful but I found it hard to get through - due mainly to the frustratingly uneven flow of the narrative i.e. the father's diary sections. This sort of exposition being common in the Gothic, I can understand why the author did this, but it didn't work for me. But I did love the character of Maud, the creepiness, the fen as liminal space, the lovely writing, the awful father!

This one next. My reading pace is picking up slightly...if only I could stay awake past 9.30pm I'd get much more done! I used to be such a night owl...

SlytherinBookLady I know the feeling!!! It takes a lot for me to stay up past 9:30 or 10 anymore when I used to be able to stay up all night long 6mo

I had an urge for something “gothicky” and randomly plucked this one off my shelves.

A creepy manor house on the creepy fens with a creepy father and a lonely child. What‘s not to love? 😆

Couldn‘t sleep so finished this creepy gothic tale. I found it atmospheric and totally engrossing. A descent into madness, murder and possible ghosts are all weaved into the story although you‘re never quite sure what‘s real
Really enjoyed this one

I very much enjoyed this atmospheric And gothic style story. There is a good sense of time and place and the feeling of pervading menace is very strong. It‘s creepy and sinister as well as being quite sad in parts. It‘s beautifully written and I liked the epistolary sections. The characters really came alive for me and the descriptions of the Fens are very vivid. An engaging, eerie and engrossing read.

I think I‘m going to go with a high so-so for this one. I enjoyed the fenland setting, and quite enjoyed the story. It definitely got bogged down in Edmund‘s sin and diaries in the middle. He really had zero redeeming features. And as a non-horror reader, I kind of wanted more creep and scariness than the pondweed provided. No, I can‘t figure that out either.

Thanks for getting me to try something different #Glastonerds!

squirrelbrain Yes, I wasn‘t sure what was going on with the pondweed either… 1y

I am currently the grumpiest person in Grumpyville.

I was pinged this afternoon & have to spend a full 10 days self-isolating. Obviously (🙄) I celebrated ‘freedom day‘ (🙄) way too recklessly by leaving the house for a full 30 minutes yesterday to go to the greengrocer.

On the bright side, I might actually finish our bookclub book…

TrishB Oh Rachel!! Hope you‘re ok. 1y

BookwormM Oh no I know a lot of people pinged who haven‘t been in close contact with anyone out of their bubble. Friend and her dad went out for meal no contact with anyone apart from food delivered to table she got pinged he didn‘t 🤷‍♀️ 1y
rockpools @BookwormM It‘s kind of bizarre, isn‘t it? I feel like any exposure I had would be minimal (I literally went to the grocers & back, 5 people in there, none close, all wearing masks, doors wide open, I‘m double-jabbed…) but I don‘t want to put mum at risk so just don‘t know what level of paranoid to run with. Which is a tad stressful! How are you? 1y

I guess you‘re back in lockdown as well are you? Hope you‘re keeping ok 😘 1y

The first half of this book was a 5 star read! I stayed up late and couldn‘t put it down. Then, it dipped in the middle. Too much of the father‘s diary, it felt repetitive and I started skimming. The ending is predictable. BUT overall, a solid pick. Full of gothic atmosphere with a creeping dread. A good eerie read. 👍 😉

TrishB I loved the first half too- but I‘m in that dip and can‘t motivate myself to pick back up. 1y

Sorry, finished 4 books in the last 2 days so going a bit review-crazy…!

I wasn‘t really sure if I wanted to read this, fellow #bookclubbers - it‘s just not my ‘thing‘. But I really liked it!

There wasn‘t the fantasy element that I expected so that helped, and I got a real sense of the eerieness and claustrophobia. It reminded me a bit of The Essex Serpent but, for me, a more coherent storyline that I enjoyed far more.

BookishMarginalia What a beautiful #cover! 1y
Oryx I'm about a third of the way through on audio - am quite enjoying it too actually - the only reason I haven't finished is that I have Ducks on the go on audio still, so that keeps tempting me over this one. I should hopefully finish it before book club though. 1y
BekahB I haven‘t read this one yet but I loved Dark Matter and enjoyed Thin Air. Dark Matter by Paver is one of my favorite creepy, build up the tension and dread type of ghost stories. 1y

This is a strange read. Maud is a difficult character to like at first, she's very spiky but when you consider her childhood experiences it's not surprising. Her father is one of the most loathsome characters I've ever read about. Overall I liked parts of it, but other aspects were frustrating, therefore I rate this one 3.5🌟

Thanks to NetGalley and publishers, Head of Zeus, for the opportunity to read an ARC.

I realized I never reviewed this book. It was a great pick for me and I loved being immersed in the Edwardian fen with Maud. The kind of novel I love where the you see the characters ponder what is real or imagined. I wanted a little bit of a different ending, but I understand why the author chose to write it the way she did. Great October read!

LeahBergen I recently bought this, too. 👍🏻 2y

A perfectly chilling Gothic tale for October. The story takes place in the fens of Suffolk during the early years of the 20th Century. Are the fens haunted? Or is Maud's cruel and controlling father the true demon?

A must read for gothic victorian lover out there. Wakenhyrst begins with discovery of some devil paintings from a lunatic called Edmund Stearne. The public begins to take notice of the discovery since Edmund is the owner of Wakenhyrst, an secluded gothic manor with mysterious fen and tangled garden. He is admitted to an asylum for killing.
The book goes back from 1966 to 1906 to tell it all.

I can't bring myself to steal the Kobo from my daughter again just to get a photo of the cover, so here's a cool shell I saw at the beach recently.

Wakenhyrst is an interesting, complex gothic story that gets a little convoluted at times. Paver does a very good job with setting and mood and with illustrating Maud's isolation, and there's a decent amount of creepiness, too. Good, not awesome, but still a "pick".

Despite my lack of concentration recently, when I did pick up this book I couldn‘t put it down! A great gothic horror set in an old house next to an English Fen which explores the story of a murder that has been talked about for many years. Maud, the main female lead finally tells her story, or some of it...
I found switching between the two points of view, Maud and her fathers diary, kept things flowing. Highly recommended to fans of the genre!!

The reeds stood tall and dead: I had the oddest feeling they wanted me gone. The light was failing. I caught a swampy smell of decay. Behind me something rustled and I saw the reeds part for some unseen creature. I thought: No wonder Maud‘s mad. All her life in a place like this?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An Edwardian Gothic speculative tale, that gave me chills, I found some of the descriptions very similar to M.R. James fabulous ghost stories. An evil has been let loose in the Suffolk Fens; can Maud survive her fathers growing madness and the superstitions of the country to gain the freedom she desires.

Michelle Paver is a master at creating atmosphere. I had listened to her previous book Dark Matter and was transported into an Arctic ghost story. Wakenhyrst is very firmly set in turn of the century England. It is claustrophobic, compelling, and delightfully creepy. I love my edition. It has gorgeous endpapers and an attached ribbon bookmark. Adore!
