The GatheringAudiobook CD - 1999
A gripping thriller from Isobelle Carmody, acclaimed author of Billy Thunder and the Night Gate and the Little Fur series (also available from Bolinda Audio).
Outside the wind was blowing the wrong way and the world was filled with the smell of death ... Something is wrong at Cheshunt. Nathanial feels it the moment he arrives. It is not the model neighbourhood it appears to be - strange things happen, despite the curfew. And soon Nathanial learns that his presence is no accident. As the dark calls its own, so does the light draw its champions, and Nathanial finds he must confront phantoms from his own past in his battle to stop the Gathering and its creator.
"The suspense never slackens ... Utterly riveting." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Superbly crafted" - School Library Journal
"A very scary novel, reminiscent of the "Stepford Wives", about a community under the control of a strange power that demands obedience." - Magpies
