One of the details I particularly enjoyed about the story was the use of hijacked smart phone technology to move the plot along a bit. It made it especially fun as a bridge between ancient culture and modern technology.
It's a quick read. Less than a dozen easily digestible chapters. I especially appreciated that, as I currently find myself with only tiny blocks of time to read. This fit the bill perfectly, letting me set it down and pick it up as my schedule demanded. But, after about 1/3 of the way through, I found it increasingly hard to set down. Fortunately, that worked well with my schedule.
I don't know much about Lovecraftian horror, but this is apparently a good example of it. After having read this, I will be exploring the genre further.
I got a huge kick out of this novella. It's told in a series of flashbacks, but opens in the midst of the story. When you read the first few lines you understand that the people in this tale are already in a world of trouble and that things are only likely to get worse. I've read very few tales like this one, and Rainey uses this very kinetic style to great effect! Your heart is racing before you can even figure out what's going on. It's a stroke of brilliant writing.
Mark Rainey's fiction is a must-have for anyone searching for a good horror story. He knows how to do it right. And if you're a fan of Lovecraftian fiction, or of Cthulhu Mythos tales, then this specific work is going to be exceedingly attractive.
