Twisted, dark, gruesome, awesome!
on March 20, 2012
Loved it! From page 1, I was sucked in and couldn't put it down.
I won't lie. It's pretty gruesome. To the point that at times, I found myself cringing and shying away from the horrible ordeals Hettie went through. And oh my god, the ghouls - those are nightmare inducing. Such beautiful prose along side such terrifying events weave together to paint a tapestry of pain, death, love, companionship, revenge and redemption. You know you've read a great book when you can't stop thinking about the characters, and when injustices against said characters get under your skin.
This story is up there in both quality and terror with Joe Hill and Stephen King. And if you happen to know the geographic area the story is set in, and the extensive history of unsolved murders and seemingly endless dark forests, it'll get under your skin.
I do hope the author provides us with more to sink our teeth into. If this is her first published work, I can't wait to see what else she has up her sleeves!
