From a zealously religious father who one night spontaneously combusts in a temple, to entrancing voices encouraging madness and murder, Claraís fear intensifies as she tries to escape the atmosphere of doom that surrounds her family. A Gothic sensation, full of vivid suspense and mystery. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies.
