Jake McAllister, an AA member author of horror fiction, returns to his hometown of Rockville to try to help his younger brother, Trey. It seems Trey’s new girlfriend, Myra, is a bad influence. What Jake doesn’t know is that she is evil incarnate. Myra has the men of town acting as her slaves while the women worship her–literally. There’s death and gore everywhere when Myra’s evil plan starts coming together.
This is a good story. Bryan Smith revived an old mythology and modernized it. The prose is good and the characters are believable. It was definitely worth the money I spent on the book and the time I invested reading it.
I don’t have any cons to mention. All I can say is, while it was a good book, it was not a great book. Unfortunately, I cannot express what makes the difference. If I were friends with Mr. Smith and he asked my opinion, I don’t know that I would have any constructive commentary other than the epilogue was a tad predictable.
