The Keepers of Metsan Valo

The Keepers of Metsan Valo

From the #1 Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Haunting of Brynn Wilder and Daughters of the Lake comes an engrossing tale of family secrets and a generations-old mystery that can stay hidden no longer.

When Anni's beloved grandmother passes away, she, her twin brother, and the rest of their family gather at Metsan Valo, the family estate on the shores of Lake Superior, for the reading of the will. No sooner does Anni arrive than frightening and unexplainable things start happening. Strange visions, whispers in the walls, and unnerving nightmares plague her first days and nights, compounding her grief and rattling her spirit. Anni fears that her return to Metsan Valo has invited less of a welcoming and more of a warning.

Once Anni's grandmother's final wishes are revealed in a heated reading of the will, family tensions reach a fever pitch. However, when tragedy strikes the home for a second time, Anni and her family set out to unspool a mystery that spans centuries. A mystery that seems fiercely relentless in its desire to be uncovered.

"Wendy Webb once again spins a magical web in The Keepers of Metsan Valo, weaving Nordic folklore, family legacy, and the bonds that unite us to each other and to the natural world. She is the sorceress of Lake Superior. Get ready to be ensnared!"
   —Carol Goodman, two-time Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author of The Lake of Dead Languages and The Stranger Behind You

"A novel taut with threats and secrets, family lore, and folktales. Who—or what—truly guards and keeps the magnificent house and grounds of Metsan Valo? That is the question that thrums through the novel. And who—or what—is threatening and haunting the family who calls it home? Dark, brooding, and mysterious, as all good Gothics should be. Loved it."
   —Kim Taylor Blakemore, author of After Alice Fell and The Companion
