Wintry and stormy books of atmosphere and dread to read this fall and winter
Lush and gripping: A Fierce and Subtle Poison
Maddeningly beautiful, I loved the lushness and richness of A Fierce and Subtle Poison. Beautifully written, as wild as the islands, and as mystical as a witch.
Beautifully rendered and utterly magical, Wolf Winter is a gritty, dark, and atmospheric read set in 1717, in the Swedish Lapland.
31 Days of Spooky Reads: The Tale of Halcyon Crane
What unfolds reads like a quintessential gothic novel. Not quite as gloomy or dark, but certainly has an atmosphere that lends itself to deep shadows and cold nights.
