The premise is simple: Sam, a struggling artist, has a week until her very first art exhibition, and she has yet to paint anything that's worthy of exhibiting. She decides to take a week at her uncle's remote cabin to focus on her work, but naturally, all manner of creepy things start happening once she shows up there. She sees a strange man on the dock by the lake- a man who may or may not be human. She starts painting in her sleep, and the resulting images are downright freaky. Her dreams are probably the most terrifying of all, with one particular scene involving a corpse sharing her bed that had me pulling my blankets over my head.
As with all of Darcy Coates' novels, the ending to this novel is perfect and perfectly wraps up the loose ends that were set dangling in previous chapters. I borrow most of my books on Kindle Unlimited, but this one I purchased outright- I enjoyed it that much.
when the super natural kicked in, then I was as good as gone as it's not what I care for. My fault for not noticing or knowing this is what this author is noted for. The story was well written and the characters especially well developed. The story was a real page turner but it lost me when it became apparent that it concerned this supernatural.
Though the story was reasonably suspenseful, the main character made me want to bang my head against the wall. Leaving the door unlocked, failing to check on her car (the only way out of the wilderness), running through the woods in the middle of the night...all those things we see in horror movies that make us throw our popcorn at the screen were all present. Yet I see promise in the author in this quick read. Three and a half stars.
In a nutshell, Sam goes to her uncle's cabin for a week to paint and prepare for her first art exhibition, but is distracted by strange happenings and a history of mysterious disappearances near the lake. I don't want to expand on the story any more than that or I'll probably ruin it for someone else, so I'll just say that it had me on the edge of my seat and, as such, I very highly recommend.
