For this post, I decided to take a break from the music reviews, to fill you in on a cool book that I've recently picked up. If you're a reader of this blog, then you already know that I blog on Scary Film Review, and am starting a book store called "Red Hearse Books". It's with that in mind, that I present this quick review of the book "The Witch's Revenge". I recommend it highly, and you may even want to listen to some records while reading this one. I sure did.
The villain, what seems like another neighbor, until a real fear is unleashed. A cloud of evil manifests in this book’s story, and the protagonists must stop it at all costs. It’s very similar to some of the 1980s slashers that had similar feels, and definitely presents itself with a very educated tone, and something that is just intrepid. Odato finds a way to mix and weave spirituality amidst terror, and that’s always something that can be relatable for so many.
The frequency of the scares are turned up a notch through the third act, and things really start to balance out. You’ll find that the scary moments mix well with the dialogue, and the surrounding narrative, which is something that most authors mix up. I like the isolated feeling of the village, and I like the way things open up for clarity towards the end. It almost feels like there’s something even bigger at play, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes a larger series, but then again, it is a hard hitting book that doesn’t pull punches. I recommend it, click here to check it out. Also check out more from the author on his official page here.
