Summary

Cambridge is home to the brightest minds...and the deadliest monsters. Can Nick and Annabel banish the beast before freshman year becomes their last? 

Newly arrived Nick feels out of place at university. The hallowed halls of Cambridge seem impossibly huge and far beyond the mining town of his youth. But Nick has much more than fitting in to fear, when he's attacked by a creature straight out of his worst nightmares....

Emotionally scarred by the sudden death of her parents, Annabel buries her feelings deep in her studies. But when her new friends nearly fall prey to a monstrous beast that shouldn't exist, she's terrified that her bad luck could bring their demise. 

As Nick and Annabel plan to trap the creature, they stumble upon a long-held Cambridge secret. And the otherworldly truth is less pass-fail than do-or-die.

If you like haunted heroes, unspeakable horrors, and parallel worlds, then you'll love Mark Wells' atmospheric fantasy series, Cambridge Gothic.

I couldn’t stop listening!

Having worked at the college it was wonderful hearing about all the locations and the spirit of the college. It was so true to life and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about the characters and the college scenes which brought me right back to such great memories.

As for the gothic story, I was captivated from the beginning and couldn’t stop listening. I love a good audio book and after hearing the epilogue I immediately bought the second one!

If you have any connection to St. John’s or are interested in college life with mysterious twist I would highly recommend it.
