Iain Rob Wright is one of my favorite writers. He is reliable, consistent, and an amazing storyteller. For me, this is what saves this novel. I just couldn’t get into the plot and had to ask myself who this was targeting.... I am going to lean towards young adults. It’s not that the story was bad... just not for me. It was also a very short story. In this case, that was a good thing as I breezed right through it. Honestly, this should probably be a three star rating, but as Iain is awesome and such a superb storyteller, I will up my rating to a four.
Let’s put it this way:
1. You’re a twenty-something year old, and like slow, atmospheric horror like The Witch, It Follows, It Comes At Night, Wicker Man, etc... and have never read an Iain Rob Wright story..... GO FOR IT!
Otherwise, Iain has a solid catalog of excellent novels and series that you can really dig into. Any of his other books are much better choice than this one, and I can highly recommend any of his series.
