The Devil Crept In - Ania Ahlborn

It's been a while since I felt so indifferent toward a book. Like . . . I'm having trouble thinking of anything to say, at all. Sorry 'bout that. It happens to every reviewer.


Ania Ahlborn has talent, okay? I can tell. She has talent in spades. Brother, though horribly gruesome and terrible, is well written and . . . well, horrific. That book still makes me a little sick.


The Devil Crept In is much tamer. I liked that. I'm not a fan of excessive gore and whatnot (though I do enjoy splatterpunk from time to time). This was a novel more about atmosphere and psychological scares. I liked the characters, especially little Stevie. And I loved part two, with Otto. I could have read an entire novel about that storyline.

Part three lost me. I don't know. I just got bored and had to force myself through. I'll give this 3 stars because I really enjoyed parts one and two. Maybe I'll reread this in the future and like it more.


Read for 'Terrifying Women'.
