Wow, the journey that Minerva, Eb and Micah took during the telling of this story was incredible and out of this world. I mean really out of this world. I literally could not put this book down. The author outdid himself on this one. And the scene in the church at the end where he puts a spoiler at the end in the epilogue- so not needed - I so had that thought in my mind when I was reading it. No doubt about it.
This was absolutely the most gross, horrendous, terrifying story I have read since "The Troop". I mean just the beginning with the animals coming together (stopping here - no spoilers) was mind boggling. And the preacher - what a total wuss. And poor Nate, I felt so sorry for him.
Nick Cutter or whatever his real name is has got one heck of a demonic mind and I love his stories. He freaks me out reading them and I can't read them even close to bedtime, but his mind goes way beyond the normal psyche and I love that. He's not for everybody, but he's definitely for me.
Thanks to Gallery Books for approving my request and to Net Gallery for providing me a free e-gallery in exchange for an honest review.
