    ePUB manaihege.co Ý Burnt Island Epub Ï burnt kindle, island mobile, Burnt Island PDFA chilling gothic novel set on Burnt Island itself where writer Max Long falls prey to the possibly supernatural forces of the island as well as other human forces The story is well written with a fast moving pace and interesting characters I found I got involved very uickly and it left me with a rather haunted feeling which remained long after finishing the book
