Review: The Lurking Season
The Lurking Season by Kristopher Rufty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Lurking Season is the first Kristopher Ruffy book I have read. It was written in a way that I did not even realize I was reading book 2 until much later. Great stand alone read if necessary. I was provided this book to give an honest review of.
The book completely blew me away with the explicit gore and horror. At first I wasn't sure if the "tales" were true, or if it was just going to be a little scary. Complete gore, horror, gross, shocking descriptions that are truly worthy of nightmares.
The creatures ... evil Haunchies will definitely come to mind during my next camp out or hike! They tore up the characters and left me drained just hoping for my favorites to get away. Absolutely for anyone who wants a little blood, guts, gore, and cruelty.
The legends were true. The creatures were real. And now they’re back!
People have whispered about the tiny humanoid creatures in the woods and cornfields of Doverton for decades. Three years ago a wildfire devoured much of the rural village, but as the ashes were cleared, more questions were uncovered—including abandoned houses, missing people and dead bodies. Since the fire seemed to wipe out the majority of the town’s woodland acres, the murmurs about the creatures have gone quiet. The residents have begun to rebuild their lives, trying to forget about the tragedy that nearly killed them all. Yet the mysteries remained unsolved.
Now a group of people will go there with good intentions, venturing into the dead heart of Doverton, thinking it’s safe. But they will find out that the legend was only sleeping. Now it’s awake. And ready to kill again.(less)
