Take a road trip into a Southern gothic horror novel.

Titus and Melanie Bell are on their honeymoon and have reservations in the Okefenokee Swamp cabins for a canoeing trip. But shortly before they reach their destination, the road narrows into a rickety bridge with old stone pilings, with room for only one car.

Much later, Titus wakes up lying in the middle of the road, no bridge in sight. Melanie is missing. When he calls the police, they tell him there is no such bridge on Route 177 . . .

CHERIE PRIEST is the author ofBoneshaker, the first book in the Clockwork Century series;I Am Princess X, her YA debut; and several other novels. She lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
