Stories of crazed serial killers are a dime a dozen, but there's nothing stereotypical about Hults's debut novel. His writing is very cinematic (which I like), and this story would make a great horror-thriller film treatment. You know that shopworn reviewer's phrase from yesteryear -- "I started reading it and couldn't put it down!" -- ? Well, it applies to this novel. I downloaded it while traveling on business. I was pretty tired after a full day, but I ended up reading it until 2 a.m. Cannot wait for Hults's second novel!
It's the story of a serial killer, an ancient god, human sacrifice, things coming back from the dead and things that aren't normally dangerous that suddenly come to life. There is nowhere to hide from this terror. It can get to you no matter where you are. It's like a ghost, but it isn't. No, this evil is something new and different. Husk is a roller coaster horror ride. It will make you want to scream in terror while you are on it, but once it's over you'll just look at the cover, and it is an exceptional cover by the way, and go 'WOW'.
I'll be the first to admit that a cool cover often seduces me into buying a novel that I normally would have passed on or waited to borrow a copy from my local library, but the cover of Matt Hults' debut novel is so frickin' BADASS that I was lured into buying it. The price was a nice incentive, too.
Once I began reading it, I was even more impressed. Hults has crafted a novel that reads like a classic horror movie and evokes the sensations I had when I first read some of my favorite horror authors for the first time. The characters are well-developed. The plot captures many of the standard horror archetypes yet presents them in a fresh manner. I can only hope that Matt Hults has a long and productive career as a novelist.
Pick this bad boy up ASAP!

Not bad. Not a lot of character development so the peril is not felt by the reader. It has a pretty cool villain and a few really gory scenes. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jeremiah jones
