The nightmare has begun. The novelisation of the classic Hammer film, Vampire Circus.
‘Your children will die. Your community will die. To give me back my life.’
The small rural community of Shettle has fallen into a decline. It is rife with crime and its inhabitants plagued by ill-fortune. When the Circus of Nights arrives the people are drawn to it like moths to a flame: it’s as though they are bewitched.
Only four men realise that there is something terribly wrong. And as the town is enclosed in a barrier of ‘sickness’ through which no one can enter or leave, they must do their utmost to protect their loved ones, before it’s too late...
“This is a fast paced action story, one by which the reader is gripped, with echoes of other famous carnivals and circuses, such as that of Cougar and Dark. Morris takes our innocent fascination with such things and turns it into an entertaining novel.”
