Black Swan meets Paranormal Activity in this literary ghost story about a former dancer whose grip on reality slips when she begins to think a dark entity is stalking her.

Something is wrong with Marianne.

It's not just that her parents have finally split up. Or that life hasn't been the same since she quit dancing. Or even that her mother has checked herself into the hospital.

She's losing time. Doing things she would never do. And objects around her seem to break whenever she comes close. Something is after her. And the only one who seems to believe her is the daughter of a local psychic.

But their first attempt at an exorcism calls down the full force of the thing's rage. Whatever is haunting Marianne, it wants everything she has, everything it's convinced she stole. Marianne must uncover the truth that lies beneath it all before the nightmare can take what it thinks it's owed, leaving Marianne trapped in the darkness of the other side.

A chilling, literary ghost story from debut author Amelinda Bérubé that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Amelinda Bérubé has been a writer and editor with a small department in the Canadian public service since 2008. She holds a Bachelor of Humanities from Carleton University and a Master of Arts from McGill. THE DARK BENEATH THE ICE is her debut novel; she is at work on her next work of YA horror, BONE KINGDOM.
