When John was a kid, his entire family was murdered. He killed the murderer. His family was the last of four families to be murdered at the time. John is now married with kids of his own and is a cop. 20 years later and another family is murdered, seemingly by the 14-year old son. But there are too many similarities to the first of the four family murders 20 years earlier for there to be a coincidence…

I really liked this. It drew me in immediately. It did slow down in the middle (but in part, I also think that’s because I had shorter amounts of time that I could sit and read; I would have liked to sit for longer periods of time for this book), and it picked up again at the end. It is horror, it is violent. I found many parts of it, especially at the start, very creepy (which I love, but wasn’t great to be reading right before bed, which I mostly was for this one!). Definitely creepy... ( )

I liked how the novella circled back to John's story. It told the story of Howie but you get to find out what happened to John a few weeks after shit it the fan for him. The novella gave the story itself an extra depth that you don't get from other books. ( )

Better than some of his recent books, the characters are all nicely developed and unique. There is, of course, a dog. ( )

I quite enjoyed this book. Any book that can make me too jittery to read it at night is a pretty good scary book to me.

This story follows a man who is haunted by the horrors of his past: his family having been killed by a psychotic murderer when he was 14. He now has to deal with the resurgence of the evil spirit along with his demon familiar killing once again and gunning for his family once more.

The killer was absolutely depraved and had me shuddering at some of the scenes and his back story.

The main character himself, along with his family, were well done overall, though the kids did seem a little pretentious.

The story was compelling and had me on edge for most of it and the ending definitely quickened my pulse. ( )
