Inspired by real events, Bandun Gate is a pulsating horror thriller by Miriam Van Scott. Despite the misgivings shown by her father's friend, Miriam and her daughter, Abby, travel to an abandoned place in the tidal marshes called Bandun Gate in Charleston, South Carolina. However, after returning back home, Miriam quickly realizes that the one coming back with her isn't her daughter but something wearing Abby's skin. Soon, her life becomes a series of never-ending nightmares. Determined to get her daughter back, Miriam delves into some research, which leads her to discover that Abby's body is possessed by the malicious spirit of a long-deceased woman named Rylah. With the help of the husband of a former victim of Rylah and a Gullah woman's white magic, Miriam must find a way to evict Rylah from Abby's body before she hurts another innocent woman.

Filled with suspense, horror, and plenty of thrills, Bandun Gate is a captivating read that will have horror genre fans devouring the book with relish. Author Miriam Van Scott infuses a sense of dread and panic into the narrative that will have you biting your nails in trepidation, wondering what will happen next. The plot is paced well, and the unexpected twists and turns keep your eyes glued to the pages. Rylah is a terrifying villain that is sure to haunt your dreams. The fact that the story is inspired by real events adds another layer of intrigue and authenticity to the tale. Overall, I enjoyed reading Bandun Gate and recommend it to fans of horror.
