A large, gothic style castle sits on the moors of Scotland overlooking the dark waters below. The words "Castle of Shadows" is written at the top of the image. This is the August Adult hint.
We are so excited to share our August Adult hint, Castle of Shadows! 👻 🏰

This month's incredible book is a Once Upon a Book Club Experience Edition that will feature an array of gorgeous details including:

🏰 An exclusive, custom dust jacket designed by the OUABC team⁠
👻 Beautiful digital edges
🏰 Unique foiling on the fabric hardcase
👻 Stunning custom endpapers
🏰 A matching signed bookplate from the author!

In a bewitchingly melancholy, thrillingly modern ghost story for readers of Eve Chase, Megan Shepherd, and Lisa Jewell, the new inhabitants of a centuries-old Scottish castle must confront its tragic and terrifying history...

Maundrell castle has been kept in the family for centuries—until now, when an unknown relative bequeaths the castle and its land to a woman and her teenage daughter. What awaits them is even more startling, for the castle is home to a multitude of ghosts.

Yet there’s a strange beauty in the austere architecture and the eerie, bloody waters below. Beguiled by a frightened ghost who gazes longingly out of the castle’s windows, the mother and daughter are drawn to the legends shrouding the island and the mystery of a priceless diamond that disappeared decades before.

Is there a curse on the gem, causing family tragedies that have all occurred on Samhain? As Samhain approaches once more, they race to peel back the dark secrets entwining the living and the dead—a twisted story of bitter cruelty and hidden love—before they become another Maundrell tragedy trapped in the lonely hours . . .

On sale now through August 14th (or until we sell out), this stunning exclusive edition is one we cannot wait for our book clubbers to unbox. Boxes are expected to ship at the end of August.

    Personal bookclub fun

    I enjoy the monthly subscription to Once Upon a bookclub! My husband got a year for me the past two Christmases. I think it has been my favorite gift ever. The books are always good, some famous authors. The gifts are always so fun. I enjoy the thrill of getting closer to each gift. I am one of those people that follows the rules and waits to get to that page before opening the gift. It’s very satisfying.
