Another New Release: SL Grey's "The New Girl"

by - 08:38

Yes, there's another new release to look forward to this year - and I definitely want to get my hands on this one. It's by SL Grey,  a collaboration between two South African writers - Sarah Lotz from Cape Town (who I mentioned a while back will be releasing The Three in February 2014) and Louis Greenberg from Johannesburg. The New Girl is published by Corvus and will be released October 3rd. Here's the synopsis:  

Don't mess with the creepy new girl Ryan Devlin, a predator with a past, has been forced to take a job as a handyman at an exclusive private school, Crossley College. He's losing his battle to suppress his growing fascination with a new girl who seems to have a strange effect on the children around her. Tara Marais fills her empty days by volunteering at Crossley's library. Tara is desperate, but unable, to have a baby of her own, so she makes Reborns - eerily lifelike newborn dolls. She's delighted when she receives a commission from the mysterious 'Vader Batiss', but horrified when she sees the photograph of the baby she's been asked to create. Still, she agrees to Batiss's strange contract, unaware of the consequences if she fails to deliver the doll on time. Both Tara and Ryan are being drawn into a terrifying scheme - one that will have an impact on every pupil at Crossley College.

Sounds creepy. I think I might be pre-ordering this one. They're first two books were The Mall published in 2011 and The Ward published in 2012.
