Maddie Ann's Playground is the first book to the Playground Series.

Welcome to Mackenzie Drew's world of Dark Fantasy and Horror

Maddie Ann's Playground

What would you do if you found yourself trapped in a cemetery on Halloween night, faced with the evil of the century? Maddie Ann’s playground, takes the reader from the streets of Old Creek, Wisconsin, to a hellish world deep within the old cemetery.

It began as a deadly secret, turned into a dark legend, then eventually a fairytale told by the locals. Now, after two hundred years in silence, Old Creek cemetery awakens once more. But this time, the wicked doesn’t only want blood, it needs young souls and Jennifer Cravens and Claire Barton are it.

On Halloween night, Jennifer agrees to go to Old Creek cemetery with Claire on one condition; they are to stay long enough to scare their friends and to see if the legend carries the truth or is bogus. But when the girls arrive, Jennifer backs out and stays inside the car. What she doesn’t expect to happen: coming face to face with a demon and having to enter the graveyard to fight to save her friends from the pits of hell.

After witnessing two friends being slaughtered by a vicious fiend, Jennifer is cast out of the graveyard with no memory of what happened. Stumbling through the woods to find civilization, she’s able to make it home, but instead of finding comfort, her biggest nightmare has just begun. Her mind has become a human dream portal for the devilish child, Maddie Ann.

Jennifer must seek the truth before time runs out for her friends and they become part of Maddie Ann’s Playground forever.

Imagine a world where nothing is quite as it seems, where a group of teenagers seeking Halloween thrills find themselves embroiled in a life and death battle for survival against the powers of darkness. This then, is the scenario brought chillingly to life by MacKenzie Drew in her debut novel ‘Maddie Ann’s Playground’. The ‘playground’ in question is the local graveyard, a place where legend tells of the fate that will befall those foolish enough to enter the lair of the demon child. Jennifer, Claire and their friends are pulled steadily deeper into a nightmare world where the only prize worth winning is the gift of life, but, will they be strong enough to outwit the demon that is Maddie Ann and claim that which we all take for granted, the right to live? This excellent debut from a talented writer will leave readers wanting more.

AUTHOR: Mackenzie Drew­

Maddie Ann’s Playground is a terrific story about Claire, Jennifer and other friends going to a cemetery with a bad reputation of horrible things happening. They go on a Halloween night, which makes it even scarier. There are bad spirits in the cemetery world, and Jennifer finds that her friends are quickly diminishing in horrible ways. When Jennifer gets out of the cemetery alive, she’s still haunted by these spirits, but doctors and family members think she’s lost her mind when she confides in them. Jennifer goes back to the cemetery to try to find her friends. Freakish and horrible spirits attack her and tell her she will die. She fights these demons when she escapes the cemetery again and again. They follow her, telling her she’s doomed to death.

Maddie Ann’s Playground is a wonderfully written horror story that once you pick it up you will not put it down until you’re done. It has terrific action, horrible accidents and mayhem, which were very well written by author MacKenzie Drew. Pick up this book, you won’t regret it! I say Kudos to a very well written horror story.
