Danje is a gripping horror novel by Gitte Tamar. It's 1965. Aware of the upcoming hurricane, Albert Gilly is trying to close his family's fishing store when he sees a drifter lying on the street. He warns the drifter repeatedly, finally giving up after shouting at him to seek shelter at the last houseboat on the pier that belonged to his deceased father. Adonis Landry, a homeless man, wakes up to find himself stripped and chained to the bed in the houseboat where he had taken shelter during the hurricane. Struggling with his memories, Adonis soon finds himself trapped in a seemingly endless nightmare that he can't escape. He tries to identify his captor in vain, and as his situation turns increasingly worse, he sees ghosts from the past. But now, an ominous fate awaits him.
Danje is an absolute pageturner of a novel. With each chapter, you will find yourself pulled further into a surreal feverish dream of dread and horror. Gitte Tamar manages to build a foreboding atmosphere of fear, mystery, suspense, and intrigue that has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. At no point in the story are you allowed to relax or take a breather. The tension created by the narrative is what keeps you glued to the pages. You can't help but feel for Adonis as he is beaten both physically and in spirit. There's a shocking reveal toward the end that readers should watch out for. Overall, this is a fantastic novel for horror fans.
