Description


The Horror She Summoned Couldn't Be Sent Back! When six-year-old Araminta Palomer, lonely child of a rich, aristocratic family, who is tormented by her cruel older half-brother, invents an imaginary playmate, she has no idea she is unleashing dangerous being who will one day ravage her family. In the beginning the small furry creature, Willbe, seems a benign force that only answers Araminta's desperate need for love. Willbe even saves her life when she becomes a target of ruthless kidnappers. But, Willbe saves her by tearing out the throats of the kidnappers, and it become clear he is far more than a child's playmate. Willbe is a Tulpa, a phantom creature from the deep unconscious, with an instinct to anyone who threatens Araminta. Soon a dog, one of the family's employees, and a burglar are found dead, their throats torn out in the same manner, and Araminta begins to realize to her horror, just what she has created. Her only support is her governess, Lilian, who has lived in India and understands what Willbe is and just how dangerous he will become. As Araminta grows into young womanhood, it becomes clear that she and Lilian must confine themselves and Willbe to the Palomer estate to protect outsiders from its deadly instincts. But their well-intentioned action only sets the stage for greater horror. Now the Tulpa has only the members of Araminta's family to focus on: her cruel half-brother, the mother Araminta loves, but often argues with, and Lilian, whose concerns about Willbe are also taken by the Tulpa as a threat. When Willbe slays one of this trio, Araminta is terrified. Is there no way to destroy the Tulpa before it kills everyone she loves--and perhaps turns on her in the end?
