Fallow Ground (2014, Blood Bound Books)



From Blood Bound Books: The Taylors want nothing more than to start a family, but the couple remains childless. A stranger, known only as Mr. Smith, arrives on their doorstep late one night with a strange proposition: safeguard a crate for the peculiar man and they’ll get their offspring. They strike a dark and irrevocable bargain.

Almost thirty years later, the Taylors’ farmland is occupied by a new family—but the curse of the past lives on.

Does wickedness dwell in the soil itself, or does evil grow from what takes root there?
