READ MY BOOK REVIEW
Release Date: October 1, 2019
Unfortunately, this book just didn't do it for me. I love the MC because she had a great personality and a snarky attitude but I didn't care how the book felt more fantasy than horror. Sure there were a few moments that gave me the chills (especially at the beginning)
Then I made faces like the faces on the rocks, and I twisted myself about like the twisted ones, and I lay down flat on the ground like the dead ones...
but those chills didn't last. Perhaps I'm asking too much as the story may be targeted better towards those who enjoy fantasy (I do not). Or maybe the book slump I have been in hasn't completely gone away. Either way I just didn't love this one and it was an okay read for me.
I think those who can go into the story with an open mind will enjoy this one more. I personally thought it would be a scary horror novel and was surprised it wasn't, but that doesn't mean others won't like it. So take my review with a grain of salt and read it for yourself if the blurb catches your attention.
