Monica Dresden is a paranoid schizophrenic who has managed her mental illness fairly well until her and her family move into a new home. Out in the woods, Monica once again begins hearing and seeing the entity which plagued her as a child. Reality begins to warp, blending with terrifying hallucinations that seem much too real to be just in her head. The new home was supposed to be a good thing for their family, but there is something about the house and the woods that is turning the Dresdens lives inside out.
Justin Woodward has done it again! Talk about a wild ride!
((If you've never read anything by Justin Woodward, please do yourself a favor and pick up at least Tamer Animals before reading this story! You won't regret it, and while I don't think it would be spoiled by Rotten Little Things too much if you don't, I still recommend reading Tamer Animals first just in case.))
This novella is short but packs a huge punch. From the very beginning, the mood is set and you are pushed to the edge of your seat. Justin Woodward has so much talent! His writing is crazy descriptive and REAL. As someone who occasionally sees and hears things...let's just say that the way this plot went has left me slightly paranoid! This story had so much happen in such a short setting, but it's done so well and was like watching a movie from start to finish. Monica's character is relatable, but an unstable narrator, which given the plot, is perfect. Is what she is experiencing due to her mental illness or something more sinister? So damn good!! This ending...holy sh**!! Yes!!! I love it!!
