Within Lakefield View, a remote town closed off from the rest of the world, a group of five young workers at a picturesque café witness the public murder of a family member. This event sets into motion the awakening of a forgotten past that connects the five friends to the creatures and killers that lurk behind every corner of their forsaken town.

Following the horrifying death, Justin Rutherford is attacked on a subway train and his boyfriend is kidnapped by the feared Ripper, leading to the revelation of his abilities to see and talk to the dead; Christina Mayer is followed home and is soon terrorised by men in white masks, all the while having to protect her little brother; Eric Watson tries to uncover his own personal family history after the death of his father opens up questions about the disappearance of his mother years before; Tiffany Hawkins is shocked by the public death of her sister, but her suffering is prolonged when her sadistic stalker will not leave her alone; and Carmen Stevens reveals the most shocking secret of all - she killed her brother, and now she has to hide the body.

The pieces of the puzzle slowly start to fit when they realise that the only thing worse than being alone in the dark, is finding out they're not.

Oh no, it's perfectly fine, I'm American, yet I spell things the British way from time to time. Don't worry!

Oh my... it's been over 6 months since I read this book! :')  ❤ 
                              To anyone who's just about to start: The Abyssal Sanctuary is an amazing book series. That being said, once you are in, know that there's no going back. Enjoy your journey! ^^
Ahhh so why Justin is gay. Tbh I was pissed when I first saw that because I'm tired of having lbgt stuff shoved into things for no reason other then it's different. But if you are gay and its easier for you to make a connection to the character, i have no complaints. Have a lovely day :D

Had to get back because I've just realized something really important: Rutherford. Like Ernest Rutherford! *___* ❤❤❤
