You don't find the Phantom Library. It finds you.

Seventeen books lay waiting on its dusty shelves. Tendrils of fear uncurl from their spines, searching for children to trap in their stories. Many curious minds have been taken by the library. They were kids looking for excitement. Instead, they found horrors chasing them to the end.

You may escape the library, but the stories never leave you.

Check out if you dare.

About the author

JoAnna Rowe grew up afraid of everything. She slept with the lights on, ran past dark windows and washed her face with her eyes open. Her loving grandma, who knew about these fears, gave her the guestroom filled with vintage dolls to sleep in when she visited. They were like the dolls from horror films with cracked porcelain skin, eyes that followed you when you moved, and pink-painted lips pursed with the silent threat of death. Grandma loved these dolls and found pleasure in displaying them in the guestroom to watch her grandchild sleep. After a life of ridiculous but very real fears influenced by Killer Doll Slumber Parties and Twilight Zone marathons, JoAnna decided to be an adult and face her fears head on with a pen and paper. The Phantom Library is her debut novel—a collection of stories to creep out kids in honor of her grandma. Find out more about the author at www.joannarowe.com.
