I loved this story when I first read this in the Toes Up collection last year and it was a favourite of mine. Its set during a hurricane in Florida, and has Mitch and Natalie as the focus.
The story sets a good pace and we find a lot out about the characters. Natalie's dad, a big name author never trusted Mitch, and so set about finding away to keep his daughter save. Enter the huge man sized statue.
The setting was good, the hurricane the perfect setting for what Mitch has planned for Natalie. With power outages, the violence of the storm echoing the violence in the house, but Mitch hasn't planned for a statue that is hungering just for a taste of him. Magic mixed with a big dose of horror.
