Summary

 “A tremendous book―thought-provoking and terrifying, with tension that winds up like a chain. The Cabin at the End of the World is Tremblay’s personal best. It’s that good.”  — Stephen King 
The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King’s Misery, Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood, and Jack Ketchum’s cult hit The Girl Next Door. 
Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. 
One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what’s going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: "Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world." 
Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay. 
“Read Paul Tremblay's new novel, The Cabin at the End of the World, and you might not sleep for a week. Longer. It will shape your nightmares for months – that's pretty much guaranteed.” — NPR 
“Gripping, horrifying, and mesmerizing.” — GQ 
“A tour-de-force of psychological and religious horror.” — BN.com 
“A blinding tale of survival and sacrifice.” — Kirkus Reviews 
“Tremblay has a real winner here.” — Tor.com

    Horror, supense and a mistery among those group of young vacacioners who by accident arrived to a very old Sanatorium building where they lived the most terrifying experience. 
    
    
    Synopsis The Sanatorium of Murcia;
    In Sierra Espuña, Murcia, the Sanatorium of Murcia is abandoned. Place that hosted the stay of lepers and patients with tuberculosis. The less serious occupied the ground floor of the building and the more serious the upper floor, from where they could never leave. It is said that the first stone of its construction was placed in 1913 and with the sole help of the hands of the neighbors it was finished in 1917. In 1962 it was closed and with it all the sick people, who were forgotten, were abandoned to their fate. Now, in 2017, three couples of American tourists, cross the slopes of the narrow road of Sierra Espuña when the engine of the rented van stops purring. Carlos, an unbalanced mental, is pursuing something with his hunting shotgun and his crossbow. Are they. The three couples formed by boys and girls who do not exceed twenty-three years, are forced to enter the forest in search of a refuge to spend the night. When their lanterns focus on the façade of the Sanatorium they can not believe what they are seeing, although one of them is well documented about the Sanatorium. But, what they do not know is that there is a legend that there are laments heard there, they see souls and their bodies. And worst of all, there is the lady in black, who they say, walks every night in the halls of the Sanatorium. Death lurks in the most terrifying way imaginable. Succumbing to your own fear.
    A terrifying story in which nothing is what it seems and what kills you is not a bullet or the edge of a knife, but your own fear, terror, terror.

As Dr. Hirsch delves deep into Annes past, she begins to expose a history of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse by leaders of a religious cult who kept children in cages, ruled mysterious deaths accidental, and tragically misused religion to justify the acts.

    As Anne summons the strength to testify against cult leaders, a captivating story of resilience is revealed, providing wonderful insight into how psychotherapy helped lead one woman out of the darkness and into the light.
