The book is beautifully paced the tension builds and builds with little relief, just like a Pink Floyd concert. The story is told with honesty and in a way that suspends your rational thought. ‘Leave them wanting more’ is an adage that Chris Rush refuses to acknowledge.
His writing leaves you spent and whimpering, with a strong urge to run home to your mother. A great read and money well spent. I will be reading his next novel All Shall Suffer, it will, however, take me a while to work up the courage to turn the first page!
But as children growing up in Ireland we could sometimes find ourselves alone and outside, on dark winter evenings, or even in sleepy wooded hollows on bright summer days.
It was the fact of been alone regardless of the surroundings which fuelled our natural defence of fear, especially when subjected to hostile sounds or unnatural weather conditions.
Whether it was the sound of an owl, or an unexplained dark shadow moving in the background on a rainy evening, the knowledge of technology and electricity did not prevent us been consumed with fear of the unknown and unexplained.
We would find ourselves running home or to the nearest safe haven, such as a busy street, or car park, once again, feeling safe and relaxed within the presence of people and technology.
But now grown up we often wonder how we would react when challenged by something that breaks all the rules of reality.
Would we stare at the anomaly, and try to challenge or rationalise it with our techo minds?
Or would we allow our natural defence kick in and run like hell?
Well Chris Rush is an author who captures all this in his book, with his unique method of captivating the reader right down to the last word of each sentence. You will find yourself shouting “get the hell out of there”, at the characters while thinking “I probably would do the same and stay”.
I can only think Chris may write from personal experience of wandering alone through the Irish country side, while harbouring a fear of Irish folklore stories that he heard as a child,
and now with his unique style of writing he can pass on that fear to the reader.
If you ever had a fear of folklore and want to be scared, Read this.
Regards Seamus Fitz.
This is a must read for fans of all things horror, a fresh new story that captivates the imagination, and does not let up until the end.
Rush has got his wish. A lingering thought has stayed in my mind. What If the stories are true?
