Amazing, Eerie, Atmospheric, chilling, engrossing. WOWZA!!!!These are the words I would use to describe this book. For those who enjoy derie and dark books, this book will be a perfect fit. This is a horror type book but without the gore. There are some plot holes but you forgive the first time Author that for his originality and heart he put into this book. It’s getting a lot of buzz right now and it deserves it. It’s not for everyone but most people I know have loved it.
Something is out there. Something so terrible that once it is seen, it causes people to commit terrible acts of violence. What could be so bad? We never know as the Author never shows us the Monster(s) in this book. The horrible “Something” that is out there is never described. The reader just knows that it is so terrible it is causing those who see it to go insane. Survivors have to cover their eyes with blindfolds to protect themselves. They have to walk around blindly trying to find food and water. Malorie and her two young children are the main characters who are tying to survive in a horrible world. Through the storytelling we learn what Malorie is experiencing both before and after the children are born. When the children are old enough, Malorie decides to go down the river in search of others. Will they make it? Will they survive? Read and find out.
This is the perfect book for October! Eerie and Dark.
