This eerily beautiful tale draws on Scottish folklore, creating a unique listening experience. Narrator Elle Newlands's Scottish brogue is the perfect voice for young Alva, who is planning to escape her isolated, fearful life on the loch with her father, who is suspected of having murdered her mother seven years earlier. Newlands will have listeners on the edge of their seats as Alva tells the story of the water disappearing and monsters appearing from caves no longer buried under the loch. The harshness of her father, the arrogant bullying of Jiles, the judgmental voices of the residents of Ormscaula, and the doubting, then believing, voices of her only friends, Grant and Renn, add to the atmosphere of this well-constructed horror story.
