The description in this book is palpable. I felt the ominous presence in the forest. I struggled to breathe with the oppressive evil sucking the energies from the forces of light. The characters were so compelling to me. This is a perfect example of an unreliable narrator. We see everyone through Helen's eyes, and as she can't trust anyone, we can't trust them, either. It was a thrill-fest figuring everything out, and I was on the edge of my seat until the very end.
This book does have shades of Stephen King, but romance readers might relate more to Nora Robert's Blood Brothers (Sign of Seven) trilogy. Not that this is a romance novel, but the enemy in the woods was handled as brilliantly by Kent as by Roberts herself.
Yes, this book will definitely keep you turning pages, even as you're looking over your shoulder. Highly recommend.
There was suspense, high drama, and otherworldly activity throughout the book. I enjoyed the tale. The details were excellent, the characters well thought out, and the writing was fantastic. The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is I feel that, close to the end, the story started to feel drawn out. That's only my opinion, however. Other than that, the book is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a little horror in their books.
Check out what happened to the Wenstrops when they build a cottage in the forest of Dean. Helen and Geoff Wenstrop were a happy (?) couple until the glade appears in their lives. Strange happenings take place when they move in. Geoff gets killed and Helen is blamed for it. Helen insists that Geoff was not the one to die, but she. Sounds cryptic? The story oscillates between the past and the present time to uncover what led Helen to her current situation.
There are lots of twists and turns in the story which keep you guessing. Scary stuff! Great ending!
If you're brave enough, go ahead, read the book!
There are a few too many characters here that don't serve much purpose. I think combining a few of them would have helped the story flow better. Some of the characters make some illogical decisions on occasion, and there are many instances of coming and going from The Glade that didn't feel necessary.
Having said that, Kent includes some vivid descriptions and I formed excellent visuals during my reading. The story ended well, and that's the sign of a good story.
