The Plague Son By R.K. Finnell Beta Review ~Kami

This is the follow up to Kickshaw's Candies, an excellent story with elements of horror and Irish folklore. Finnell has a real talent for storytelling. This book is very well written. I liked the feel of the story. It has a dreamy, oral storytelling style that immediately draws you in. I felt compelled to keep reading so as to find out what was going to happen next. The writing is very descriptive, creepy and at times gruesome like a story told to Stephen King, Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) as they sit around a campfire. Each chapter reads like a short, scary, self-contained story that builds on each previous vignette. An amazing follow up to the excellent mythos that began with Kickshaw's Candies. 5 stars.
