Twenty-one years ago, ten-year-old boys Cal, Fox, and Gage spilled a few drops of blood onto an ancient altar during a childhood ritual. Suddenly the world exploded, and nightmares came to life. Now, every seven years, that evil returns to wreak havoc on the town of Hawkins Hollow. Author Quinn Black loves researching spooky legends, but this one is beyond her and calls for reinforcements, including the three boys, who are now grown men, and two other women.
As they delve deeper into history, they discover unexpected connections to one another. Narrator Phil Gigante exudes the rhythms of the small town, the slower drawls, the hesitancy with strangers, but he also understands the main characters. For Cal and Fox, this place is their lives, their home; not so with Gage. His smoke-roughened voice and unresolved anger toward his abusive father colors his every word.
-Gigante manages the women well, with higher pitched voices and New York accents. He also keeps pace with the building tension and leaves us wanting more. Highly recommended.
