CURSED DARKNESS

One night will change an old man's life.

When a retired veteran acquires three mysterious antique dolls combing the beaches of the Oregon coast, a dark curse is revealed that will change his life - and force him to become the hero he never knew he was.

A contemporary urban fantasy set on the Oregon coast, Darkling's Cove hearkens back to the classic feel of Stephen King short stories.

"Richly set and beautifully told, Carlson paints a story filled with love and tragedy. She captures tortured emotions perfectly and leaves you wanting more." — Chris Patchell, author of In the Dark
