The horrors of this book are once again an homage to those created by Lovecraft himself, and I continue to find absurd joy in heroes that would have completely pissed him off. At this point, I am thoroughly enamored by both Whyborne and Griffin, and Hawk continues to impress with their excellent character development.
The drama of Griffin’s life takes center-stage in this book, as his PTSD and rocky relationship with his own family are revealed. Both are handled with heart-wrenching realism.
At the time of this reading, I still have seven books to go in this series. I look forward to seeing how these characters and this world develop, and the fact that I immediately purchased the next book after finishing is always the highest praise I can give.
