In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister--at all costs. Once a year, a road appears in the forest. Once a year, those brave enough walk the mysterious path. Once a year, the ghost of Lucy Gallows beckons.
Lucy's game isn't for the faint of heart. If you win, you escape with your life. But if you lose....
When Sara and her skeptical friends enter the Cartwright forest in the dead of night, the road to Lucy appears before them. Hardly believing their eyes, they lock hands and step into the pitch black. The world as they know it slips away and the rules of the road replace it. Sara is determined to find her sister, who has been trapped on the road for a year, but she and her friends will face terrors they've only seen in their nightmares.
A ghost is the least of Sara's problems when faceless figures haunt the way, wrong steps summon monsters as tall as buildings, and unfortunate souls who wander the path are stuck somewhere between life and death. Loyalties will be tested, realities questioned, and confidences broken. There are more horrors in this world than things that go bump in the night.
And at the end of the road, Lucy is waiting.
