Jess Moulson has just been convicted of a murder she may or may not have committed. One thing is certain: a young boy is dead and Jess was so high the night he died, she's not convinced of her own innocence. Fellside is a ghost story on the surface, but beneath that is a story of loyalty, guilt, and forgiveness with a bit of an unexpected love story on the side. Reading this book often left me tense with fear and at the same time breathless with wonder at some of the most beautiful bits of prose I've encountered in literature, let alone in any ghost story. M.R. Carey is a master storyteller and if you enjoyed his first, The Girl With All the Gifts, you'll love Fellside.— Heather

“Let's say you've been convicted of murder and sent to a maximum security prison for the remainder of your life, which should be a while since you are not that old. Then let's say that not only can you not remember killing anyone, but you can't remember who you are. Could things get any worse? How about if the ghost of the little boy you supposedly killed visits you in prison to ask for your help. What do you do? From the author of The Girl With All the Gifts comes another gripping and unforgettable story.”
