Hazel has fantasies, not just any fantasies, but gang rape fantasies and other strange sexual fantasies every day. Her pregnant friend, Sonia, who Hazel is in love with, and her go up to a cabin that Frank, Sonia's husband has inherited.
All through this Hazel's father keeps trying to get in contact with her. She ignores the calls for the most part until one day Sonia directs her to answer it. But then even stranger things start to happen. She comes across Peter Pan and Snow White who demand she do sexual things or else they will not only hurt her, but her pregnant friend.
The Haunter of the Threshold is a big sexual whirlwind of a woman, Hazel who can't figure out if she is normal or just sick. I found that there were several times I wondered what was going on in the story. As I read I knew there were several fantasies, but then the story jumped several times. There is a good idea there about the main character Hazel trying to find out if she can think for herself without these sexual fantasies and is she really okay or mentally ill gives a good basis for a story. But where those ideas where possibly present, the story lacked a good foundation to follow through except for the explicit sex situations.
