Three teenagers, Dee, her boyfriend Luke and Luke's brother go on a road trip. they run out of gas at this sleepy little town.... sometime in the evening. When they get there no one is around. The stores are empty, the houses are empty, and all the cars are empty. They stay the night and wake up to the worst nightmare ever. They are kidnapped, tortured, and more. The struggle begins to escape the evil town they are now trapped in.
This book was insane. I can say that it was freaky and it was sadistic. It was everything I need in my horror stories. They only complaint I have .... I just wan to get it out of the way... was the ending. It felt rushed and incomplete to me. I feel that there was so much more that could have been done. The way it ended didn't bother me as much as the way it happened. Like I said it just felt rushed. I completely enjoyed and was enthralled in the first half of the book. The second half... once the escape was attempted... it just went a little downhill from there.
What I loved was the crazy of the story. The evil was just evil. Dark, sadistic, loony tunes. It made the hair on my airs stand on edge, it made me cringe, it made me want to hide under my covers. This book really freaked me out and I liked it.
There wasn't a huge connection to the characters but I think that is really hard to do in fast paced books and this was a very fast paced book. I liked the characters. I enjoyed Dee and her personality, her loyalty to her friends, her kindness, her bravery . She was a stand up character. I didn't really think much of Mike or Luke but they just weren't in the story as much. The story was told from Dee's point of view and pretty early on they were separated and stayed that way for most of the book. So I just didn't get to know them. Joseph was pretty cool. He was pretty selfish when it came to wanting to save his sister. Not that I didn't understand but he went through some pretty insane things to free his sister. Like kidnapping.
The best character was Elijah and that was simply because he was so malicious and vile. I really enjoyed hating him and stabbing him in the eyes with pencils... in my thoughts. I haven't hated someone this much since... well not sure when but its been a long time. He was super easy to detest.
The story was pretty insane too. It seems to be a ton of cult books out there right now and it doesn't matter how disturbing they are, they seem to be an experience to read. This one for sure was one of the most insane ones I have read. If you like gruesome tales you need to read this one. Its pretty horrid.
a very solid, wicked, terrifying read.
After a young boy approaches the group and says that he can help them, they follow him outside. Things seem to be turning around for the three until they realize this young boy is the son of the cult-like ruler of this small town. Dee, Luke, Mike, and Joseph now must fight for their lives against Joseph’s father Elijah while trying to save Joseph’s younger sister from the wrath of Elijah.
This book was absolutely fantastic. It dealt with so many tough issues in such a delicate but fascinating way that I devoured the story. Absolutely deserves a 5/5.
