This story is about Griffin's homecoming. The series in general has dwelled quite a bit on both characters' quest for the approval of their parents. I kind of feared it would be one of those stories where a cruel parent suddenly has an epiphany and everything is fine (there was a bit of that with Whyborne, but at least there was a reason) but I think she dealt meaningfully with the situation. In the end, Griffin didn't need his parents' approval.
This series is just so creative. It has gone in so many directions while still keeping a plot arc and bringing us closer to some future climax. The characters have grown and developed, the town maintains its own personality, and the settings are very rich. I wish she'd expanded a little more on the racial history in the story, but I was glad she discussed it in the afterward.
If you haven't read the series, start with book 1! If you have, you won't be disappointed in this one.
This book deals with Griffin's family, and SPOILER from the last books his issues with his families acceptance. I appreciate that this book does not shy away from the fact that some families do not accept their LGBT kids. Not all of us have family that will talk to us, so seeing Griffin build a family with Whyborne, Christine, and her new fiance is fantastic.
I felt the themes in this book were well done, and kept with the authors exploration of Lovecraft's mythos.
I adore both Griffin and Whyborne. Both have their scars (physical and mental), but the author even admits Griffin is far more broken than Whyborne, even though he has a suave and charming exterior. I love Griffin and Whyborne’s relationship. They have been through so much together, and no matter what happens, they get through it. The strength of their love shines through in Fallow.
Griffin’s mother—I wanted to throttle her through most of this book. While Griffin’s family’s views were normal for the time, it still made me want to smack all of them—the whole town of Fallow, really. But fans of the Old West will love the train car chase scene and subsequent explosion.
I’m sad that I’m almost to the end of this awesome series. Well, not the end, as it is currently ongoing, but there are nine volumes, and soon enough, I will have to wait for the next one.
This book's creep-out supernatural evil is disgusting in a somewhat zombie-ish way, and that's not really my thing, but the emotional content made the read worth it. Both Griffin and Whyborne must reach a point of accepting themselves more -- though I have to say that Whyborne's hiding the guilt/responsibility he felt since the climax of the previous book, the rejection he feared, and the separation he foolishly planned, all to "protect" Griffin [and the others] from Widdershins/himself, made me once again want to smack some sense into him.
P.S. I did once again see one revelation coming, though this time not re. the Big Bad, but re. the letters that tormented Griffin's former friend/lover.
