“Fucking hell,” Thursday said. “It’s almost like you can’t summon otherworldly beings into existence, let them loose on your enemies, and set up a culture of worship around them without people getting all crazy.”

i really liked this! it’s not necessarily a new favorite, but it’s an exciting horror novel that takes place in an anarchist commune and is filled with queer characters. i felt like things happened a little too quickly toward the end, and some scenes just didn’t feel organic, but otherwise i don’t really have any complaints! i’ll definitely be recommending it to others, as it’s a quick read to satisfy one’s horror cravings.

  1. I love this title and cover! And I always a appreciate solid horror recs. I was intrigued already based on your review and the cover, but I just looked this up and saw it’s set in Iowa too… now I really want to check it out! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed this one, great review.
