Splintered
Prowling in the darkest corner of a desolate, abandoned building on the edge of a wilderness is a dangerous animal, one that lives by the rules of the wild, where survival is its only concern. Sophie, a teenager with a troubled past, puts herself and her friends at the mercy of this beast, when her curious obsession with the unexplained leads them deep into the Welsh countryside. When her friend is violently attacked Sophie soon discovers what it's like to become the object of this animal's obsessive desire. She is locked in an isolated empty room, where no one can hear her screams.

Sophie’s attempts at escape repeatedly end in failure, but she clings to the hope that her friends will rescue her. Unfortunately their desperate search for Sophie will inevitably end in death and despair.

Sophie must confront the mysteries that are locked in her past and discover the truth about her captor, if she is to survive the beast’s unstoppable and obsessive onslaught.
