Sweet Aswang, a novel
On an ordinary night in a quiet, upper-middle-class neighborhood, eighth-grade classmates Chloe Danvers and Spencer Genovese sneak out of their homes to investigate a weird clicking noise. They watch as a shadowy figure slinks through their street, dashes around a house, and disappears.
The next morning, they learn that the Hoffman family has been murdered.
In their efforts to find out what happened, Chloe and Spencer discover that no one else can see or hear the malevolent being they glimpsed. Only a shared medical condition enables them to sense its presence. Their illness provides a measure of protection from the creature, but not for long. It becomes aware of them and begins taunting them in a series of disturbing events. Now they must determine its weakness … and stop it before it goes after its next victims.
"Sweet Aswang is a taut and chilling coming of age story about two young teens who are trying to learn to live with newly diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes."
"A malevolent haunting and a race against time makes for a powerful and gripping read."
"As usual Anthony devices a superb plot, with excellent twists, heavily researched characters that appear real. ... Captivating. Brilliant. Powerful. A thrilling tale of a young man with his own personal struggles, battling a supernatural intruder to his home."
