From the author of Westlake Soul and The Forgotten Girl

HALCYON is the perfect haven for all Americans who want to escape the dismal state of the U.S., but paradise isn't what it seems...

A beautiful island in the middle of Lake Ontario--a self-sustaining community made up of people who want to live without fear, crime, or greed. Halcyon seems like a dream come true. The utopia is run by Valerie Kemp, aka Mother Moon, benevolent and altruistic on the outside, but hiding an unimaginable darkness inside. She has dedicated her life to the pursuit of Glam Moon, a place of eternal beauty and healing. And she believes the pathway there can only be found at the end of pleasure.

On the heels of tragedy, Martin Lovegrove moves his family to Halcyon. They can't take any more pain or fear. Especially sensitive Edith, whose nightmares have an eerie way of becoming reality. A couple of months, he tells himself, to retreat from the chaos and grind. No smart phones. No TV. No internet. No TV. Back to a simpler way of life. But something doesn't feel right. Martin begins to suspect deception beneath Halcyon's perfect veneer. And when something feels too good to be true... it usually is. Martin wants to know the truth--however terrible--behind the island and its mysterious founder, Mother Moon.

Halcyon is Rio Youers' page-turning race against the clock in a world that eschews the limits of time.

  • “A prescient exploration of domestic terrorism and the fears that currently grip ordinary people worldwide, Halcyon is a slick, page-turning thriller that establishes Rio Youers as an author with something to say. Ominous and yet somehow full of hope, Halcyon shows that Youers is a Koontz or King for a new generation.”
