A predictable thriller novella, with zombies coming out of lakes and a serial killer on the loose.
I've read other books by Darcy Coates and enjoyed them, but Voices in the Snow was disappointing. I expected more dystopian, more apocalypse, and less overdone wendigos and zombies.
If there was a musical equivalent, it would be a hint of Myrkur's haunting vocals coupled with the feel of the moors in Wuthering Heights.
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.
Horrid tells the story of Jane, whose father died 5 weeks ago, and whose mother is lying to her.
Emily Carroll again delivers a disturbing and gory narrative, complete with illustrations that drink from a well of the macabre.
Sufficiently creepy, Welcome to Lovecraft was an alluring welcome to the series. I ordered the second volume before I finished reading the first.
3 stars Cinematic as usual, Ahlborn's writing in this book was just as good as her other ones. I can't say Within These Walls is my favorite of hers or her creepiest, but it's definitely good, though not up to standards as her other books.
The book starts off mid-action and does.not.stop.
Coates has you panting as the forest killer hunts down the characters, starting with poor Eileen. A typical mystery/thriller, Hunted leaves you guessing what the hunter with the razor sharp claws is, and who's really behind the murders.
