From New York Times bestselling author Stephen Graham Jones comes a novel that is equal parts psychological horror and cutting social commentary on identity politics and the American Indian experience.
Fans of Jordan Peele and Tommy Orange will love this story as it follows the lives of four American Indian men and their families, all haunted by a disturbing, deadly event that took place in their youth. Years later, they find themselves tracked by an entity bent on revenge, totally helpless as the culture and traditions they left behind catch up to them in a violent, vengeful way.
I loved this book. It's dark, and quite gory—which isn't what draws me to horror, but it sure comes with the territory, and very scary. And it's haunting, which is what I do come to the horror genre for. I enjoyed the way the story was broken up into sub-stories, and there was more than one twist I didn't see coming despite some well-executed foreshadowing. It has all the hallmarks of what I consider to be great storytelling. I expect I'll be thinking about this book for a while, and will definitely buy other books by this author.
I'm loving it so far, I'm still in the beginning. But it's getting good.
