All the characters in the story are very well written and thought out.
I do not think they would have been ignored in the way that they were and as a result found the story developed as it did in a way it would not have.

This was a brain-rattling tale, massive in scope and disturbing in execution. Peter Straub is a master at capturing the unspeakable in the net of language and rendering magic too... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Troy Blackford
It scared me and that's what I was after. It's old school too and not filled with gore or zombies, just evil, and that gets your attention.Published 6 months ago by M F Pierce
