Treasure Box (1996) is the second horror novel by Orson Scott Card. It takes place in modern day America.

Plot introduction[edit]

The plot details a middle-aged man, Quentin Fears (pronounced "fierce"), who marries a woman who turns out to be from a strange family. The story unfolds as Quentin tries to stop a witch in the family from unleashing a great evil upon the world.


As many of Card's other literature, a Christian/Mormon influence is present in this book.


Publisher's Weekly complimented the plot and characters.[1] Kirkus Reviews also cited strong characterization, but said the plot was neither realistic nor surprising.[2]
