When seven-year-old Jamie falls down a very long hill, he
finds himself trapped in a world of strange creatures,
harsh landscapes, and near-perpetual darkness. Lost and
confused, Jamie is desperate to get home. The nightmares,
fears, and all manner of what-ifs that inhabit this shadow
world are unfamiliar to him—all except one: the
Lairdbalor, Jamie’s personal nightmare, once relegated to
his dreams. In this fantastical land, however, the
Lairdbalor and all the fears and nightmares of children
are very real.
But Jamie’s nightmare is different. It is the sum total of
the anger and anxiety that imprisoned him in his former
life, and it threatens to consume and rule the nightmare
realm, a place where time passes differently. With each
slumber, Jamie finds himself inexorably changed. The
farther he travels through this terrifying world, the
better he understands the one he left behind.
Crossing genres of folklore, horror, fantasy, and magical
realism, The Lairdbalor is a story for anyone who lives
with anxiety and fear and has ever wondered “what if?” It
is the story of a child not meant for children and a
darkly imaginative meditation on life, death, fear, and
the nature of reality.
