Get out your rosary and keep a flask of holy water on hand and be prepared to watch for shadows!!
There were occasional grammatical errors; they were not frequent enough to be distracting- errors that are common (un-fortunately) in contemporary American English.
I was very struck by the uniqueness of the story. I'll just tell you ahead of time: you do NOT know where the story is going. Some horror is predictable. This is not. It's a cliché to say that it was a 'real page-turner', that 'it kept you guessing', and that 'you never knew what was coming', but truly this was the case here. If you read it you'll understand.
As an avid reader and an English major I have a particular interest in fictional characters, The Seventh Word offers a lot of totally new characters instead of a lot of 'same', repackaged characters that a lot of books, particularly horror novels, have to offer. The attention to details with the characters was really striking and the details created a picture in my mind without it being overdone or tiresome.
The contrasts in this story was something that I had never seen before. The small rural town life and colorful people (offering a comedic effect) within an overall dark mood. It's an incredible combination that stands out among others in it's genre.
I particularly like the depth that the story reached. It references history,looking back through time at some of humanity's most gruesome and horrific experiences. It's an ancient evil repackaged as a modern one. I didn't expect a fictional novel, especially horror, to be so thought
