About the book

Mike Carter and his girlfriend Helen, along with their friends Alex and Kay, travel to a remote loch side cottage for a post-graduation holiday. But their celebrations are short-lived when they hit and kill a stag on the road. Alex s sister Meggie awaits them in the cottage, adding to the tension when her dog, Oscar, goes missing. Mike becomes haunted by a disturbing presence in the cottage, and is hunted by threatening figures in the highland fog. Reeling from a shock revelation, Mike begins to lose his grip on his sanity. As the dark secrets of the past conspire to destroy the bonds of friendship, Mike must uncover the terrifying truth dwelling within the walls of Hearthstone Cottage.

#TheSkintaker returns!

“A charnel carpet of bones—a femur here, a shattered ribcage there—and worst of all, hundreds upon hundreds of skulls” 💀

He’s back! The Skintaker returns in a handsome new edition from Crossroad Press/Macabre Ink.

The Skintaker is a prequel novel to my Bram Stoker Award ‘Best First Novel’ Finalist The Lamplighters, and can be read before or after that book. If you dare.

My thanks to the two Davids at Crossroad Press for giving this old demonic deity a new lease of life.

And this monster comes sheathed in a shiny new skin, too. Check out the new cover art:

Pretty spiffy, eh?

And if you’d like to hear my insights into the book and its themes, check out the Horror Happens Radio Show interview I did with amazing horror host Jay Kay back when the novel was first published.

About The Skintaker

You have what he wants!
Reclusive nineteen-year-old Rosie Shields hopes for a new lease of life that will free her from the stigma of her debilitating skin condition.
Making a pilgrimage to the Amazon rainforest, Rosie experiences a new world beyond her wildest dreams among the mysterious Myahueneca tribe.
But Rosie’s dreams soon turn to nightmares when she embarks on a ritual vision quest that takes her to the very heart of darkness.
Trapped between murderous hunters and raging forest fires, Rosie will be thrust into a fight for survival, a struggle that awakens an ancient evil stirring in the shadows…the demonic deity known as The Skintaker.

Praise for The Skintaker

“A phenomenon in horror fiction that is truly chilling.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Wesley Thomas, Horror Novel Reviews)

“A grandly entertaining period horror adventure in the classical Kipling and Conrad tradition…THE SKINTAKER has never a dull moment. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
(Eric Red, screenwriter of NEAR DARK, THE HITCHER and author of IT WAITS BELOW and WHITE KNUCKLE)

“Fans of extreme horror will find it all very satisfying, as author Frazer Lee paints his narrative so vividly.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Mallory Heart Reviews)

“I loved this book! Filled with fabulous descriptions and fully formed characters I devoured The Skintaker in one sitting…I didn’t want the adventure to end. This was my first novel by Frazer Lee but it definitely won’t be my last. If you’re looking for a great read, grab this 5 star book and hold on for the ride.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Horror Maiden’s Book Reviews)
