Wow! I had wanted to read a full novel by Caitlin for several years (having read her Vertigo work and the story in The Sandman Collection) and boy was it worth the wait. This shoots onto my all time favourite list. The quality of her writing, both lyrical and moving, is stunning. There were times reading this when I was gob smacked at her use of the english language. Gaiman's quote about her being 'the poet and bard of the waste and the lost' is spot on.
The story itself moves at a wonderful pace, the ending - if anything - came too quickly as I wanted more. More of Chance, Deke, Dancey and Sadie, fully realised character with quirks and differing traits. More of the creepy dog people and Beowulf monsters. I want to be immersed back into Kierman's deep Southern vision of horror. So much so that I have already order another of her books.
Read This Book. Say it with me, "Read this book"
