When we first meet Huw, he's recovering from terrible injuries sustained in the accident which killed both his parents. Still barely reconciled to his loss, he suffers another close scrape when he is almost hit by a car--a twist of fate, it transpires, that entwines his destiny with that of Hal, a man tormented by an ancient curse. After this second accident, the bad dreams which have plagued him since the death of his parents get harder to bear and Huw finds himself stuck in a kind of waking sleep. As he becomes increasingly entangled in the web of Hal's darkest fears, he realizes that they have no choice but to confront their worst nightmares together.
Catherine Fisher's hypnotic thriller takes an instant hold on the imagination, gathering pace as the story hurtles towards a terrifying climax, with Hal's curse taking its final toll and Huw fighting for his life and sanity on Belin's Hill. --Susan Harrison
Huw, the "lucky" survivor of an accident in which both his parents are killed, comes to the haunted valley of the Usk with his sister Lizzie to recover and start a new life. But the present seems as fraught as the past as his nightmares increase in intensity and force him to desperate action.

Do not buy this book based on the review above, it has been placed with the wrong title. The synopsis above belongs with another of Catherine Fisher's excellent titles called 'Belin's Hill'. I bought 'The Empty Hand' because I liked the synopsis/review that had been attached to it-incorrectly as it turned out.
'The Empty Hand' is the second part of The Snow-Walker trilogy, and the story is completely different to what the review/synopsis above suggests. Someone has made a mistake!
