AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR


It’s autumn in the town of Harrow, but something besides the season is changing there.

Because in that town there is an orchard, and in that orchard, seven most unusual trees. And from those trees grows a new sort of apple: strange, beautiful, with skin so red it’s nearly black.

Take a bite of one of these apples, and you will desire only to devour another. And another. You will become stronger. More vital. More yourself, you will believe. But then your appetite for the apples and their peculiar gifts will keep growing—and become darker.

This is what happens when the townsfolk discover the secret of the orchard. Soon it seems that everyone is consumed by an obsession with the magic of the apples . . . and what’s the harm, if it is making them all happier, more confident, more powerful?

Even if something else is buried in the orchard besides the seeds of these extraordinary trees: a bloody history whose roots reach back to the very origins of the town.

But now the leaves are falling. The days grow darker. It’s harvest time, and the town will soon reap what it has sown.

Wow!!

This book was so good, I couldn’t put it down! So original! Who thought apples could be so terrifying?

Super woke

I love it because I’m woke.

Woke Author

It’s no wonder they are claiming similarities between Wendig and Stephen King. They both have the far left mental health sickness. Just a bunch of woke nonsense throughout the story. I stopped a couple of chapters in. If you aren’t into woke then save your money. I wasted mine.
