Cloaks is a shining example of the genre!”

Bess thinks she can be in and out of the town bogeyman’s basement in less than a minute. Instead, she winds up transported to another world, running for her life from black-cloaked, knife-wielding horsemen who will stop at nothing to keep her from returning home. For help she can only turn to a simple farm family—who, if anything, fear the black-cloaked riders more than she does—and a somber, mysterious figure out of legend who has given her little reason to trust him.
But trust him she must, or perish. And in the ensuing whirlwind of kidnapping, murder, capture, escape, and rescue, Bess learns that trust is not a matter of first impressions, and that friendship can transcend barriers of time and space and, sometimes, even more.
