This week's book of the week is one that is near and dear to my heart. I am a huge horror fan as most of you know, and there are quite a few fantastic horror authors that are out there. However, I've been a huge fan of this author and honestly own quite a few of (if not all) of his works on Kindle, and even was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of my favorite novel of his in paperback, signed.
This author is absolutely wonderful, and I'm glad to share his work with you and feature this novel with you this week here at Confessions! So, without further adieu, I give you this week's Book of the Week:
I highly recommend reading this book during daylight hours, or if you read it in the dark do not do so before you are going to bed. I will not be blamed for your recklessness of reading this too close to bedtime! You have been warned!
I have owned this book for several years now, and have my review posted here on the blog, you can click here to find it.
Set in Millingham, Massachusetts, there are several unexplained suicides happening. There is a common thread to all of these deaths. The authorities have no idea how or why the victims are killing themselves, or more importantly - why they are gouging out their eyes.
Lysander Shore, a seventeen-year-old, knows that the deaths aren't suicides. He knows that there is a serial killer stalking Millingham. The killer has a list, a list dating back 350 years, and as Lysander continues to dig - he soon realizes he is next.
The writing in this book is phenomonal, and I've always been a sucker for a story that leaves my skin crawling and leaves me afraid to turn off the light for fear of what goes bump in the night.
If you are looking for a fantastically dark and twisted story, I highly suggest Griffin Hayes' Malice!
