There's a great deal to recommend for this book. The characters are well fleshed out, the writing clear and gruesomely descriptive when it comes to the monsters and deaths, and the narrative arc engaging. The only flaws in this book I would really harp on would be the somewhat cliched nature of the villain and that the plot can be difficult to follow. While its association with maggots was cool (and gross, and creepy!), we've already seen the 'evil vengeful Native American spirit,' often created by a "lost" tribe of them who were evil in some way, before. Additionally, I found myself confused a couple of times when the story went from the present day (the 1980s) to distantly past decades. Still, those are ultimately minor caveats--I can definitely recommend this tale of terror with no other reservations, and see why Douglass Clegg has such an impressive reputation!
All that being said this Kindle version has a lot of typos in it which does get on one's nerves-but overall, I found this book to be a fun read.
Goat Dance takes us to Pontefract, Virginia--a tiny community where everyone knows everyone else. Cup moved away years ago, but he is now having horrifying dreams and receiving ominous telephone calls that lure him back to his hometown. Once there, he is caught up in an ancient evil that is reaching out to gain power. Cup joins forces with some fellow townspeople to try to stop the spread of this horrifying creature before it destroys everyone in its path. At one point, Cup asks himself "How do you keep the dead out? If they want you, they'll find a way."
This is a chilling story that kept my attention from page one. The characters are realistic and interesting, the evil is deliciously frightening, and the twists and turns are enough to grab the reader's attention all the way through the story. As with any Clegg novel, this one is part love story, part personal discovery, part epic and 100% scary. This title may be difficult to find, but it is certainly worth the effort. If you are new to Clegg, you might want to also check out YOU COME WHEN I CALL YOU, HALLOWEEN MAN and THE NIGHTMARE CHRONICLES.
