First off, let me start by saying that this book is not for the feint of heart. If you do not like macabre stories, then you will want to steer clear of this one.
On that note, I loved this book. It has been ages since I have read a good horror/fantasy book. This one is definitely that. It will take you to places that you wish you didn’t go. It will cause you to squirm with uneasiness. It will make you want to lock your doors tight.
Some have likened it to HP Lovecraft’s works. This author might not be as polished as HP Lovecraft, but that same style of horror is definitely present. LE Lindberg takes you into the real sickness of what humanity can be twisted into and then twists that even more.
