(Elysium #0.5) There is only one place forbidden to the people of Gavin's village; the island just off the shore, rumored to be haunted. Cursed. All who venture to the island disappear. But Gavin doesn't believe in such things. He is a hunter; since his father's death, he is the only one who can provide for the family. Silly rumors of ghosts aren't going to stop him from crossing the dark waters to the island in search of fresh game . . . 3.47 stars
