Thanks to NetGalley and the Publisher for an e-ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Hear all my thoughts in my August wrap up video.
I struggled with this one. At first, I thought we were following three independent narratives all relating to one central “monster”. Once I realize they all tie together as friends, I stopped ~1/3 into the book to start it over. I am glad I did because there were details I missed the first go around.
In the end, I really enjoyed it. Jones’ style is the epitome of horror. He never goes wrong there. The difficult comes in his unique way of story telling. Nevertheless, he never fails to give us those vibes of classic horror slashers, or at least here he does it well.
This is a book that I think could stand for a reread. It was a fun ride that only gets better the closer you dig into it. It was also a fascinating exploration of indigenous people. 4/5 stars
