Overview

A scarecrow crucified on a wooden cross made from a pair of two-by-fours sits in a field of corn, placed there to frighten away birds and protect the crops. Under its straw hat large buttons pose as its eyes, placed there by child's fingers, view something sinister in the grave sky, appearing in front of the full moon.

Twisting, it forms into a sleek black mass, peering down upon the town of Woodbury. Four demons called The Reckoning has pulled this shadow, this urban legend from the past, out of an unmarked grave to bring terror across the planet, shoving it toward an apocalypse.

Now it cuts through the air, as if it were opening wounds in flesh, peering down at the first house that it hovers over...

Just imagine…Children are changing. Changing into brutal, gleeful killers. I’ve loved horror books and movies ever since I was young. Something about being scared by fiction gave me thrills. The creepy crawlie covers always jumped out at me from the shelves and I scoured libraries and book stores for the next big scare. This one is disturbing. Just warning those of you who are sensitive about monster children doing terrible deeds. I often wonder, especially after watching my favorite TV show The Walking Dead, if I could pull the trigger and shoot a child. Even if I know it’s not really a child anymore and it will kill me. Not to say these kids are zombies. Oh no. They’re something else. Something dark and evil has changed them. You’ve seen those movies where you can hear a child giggling in the dark? Such a hair raising, evil thing. These kids not only giggle, they taunt, and then they attack. Not much can stop them either. I didn’t have much time to care about most of the characters as they didn’t last long. The ones I did connect with? A couple I could care less about, not such good people anyway. I did feel sad about some that fell under the knives of the kids. There were some fun illustrations in the book too. I always enjoy it when the author shares their view of things. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for some old school, edgy horror. I received this book for my honest review.

I received this book to give an honest review.    So if I was to pick this book because of the cover I would probably pass it up. For the amount of gore and amazing graphic stuff written within the book this cover doesn't do the book any type of justice. With that being said I have to review and rate the book and not the cover.   We have a small town who is going on about their daily lives that is until all of a sudden the kiddos start becoming murderers. Yes I know kids killing adults what is the world coming to?  Now the book gives you different narrators and as anyone knows I am not a big fan as at times it gets confusing as to who is who. Though I have to say in this story I wasn't confused I knew which character was who and I am thinking because of not only the personalities of the characters but the names were no where near being close to each other so it was easy to tell them a part.  What has turned these kids into killers you may ask? Well that all has something to do with the revenge that has been set into the town hundreds of years ago.  We watch as the adults fight for survival from an entity not of this world.  Now all the characters come together in some sort of way, but not in a good way. The one survivor that is at the end is someone I didn't even think would be a survivor. The way scenes were described I literally was going OMG half the time, some of the kids asking "do you want to play" reminded me of the child in Pet Cemetery.  See freaky right there. Now when the kid's transform into something else entirely I was kind of like whoa! Where in the hell did that come from, but it all goes back to the history of the town. It seemed way supernatural. I have to say I was in awe of how good this book was. This story is what I look for when I read horror. The graphic and gory scenes are amazing and had me making sure my own kiddos weren't under demon possession lol.  I really enjoyed how the author used the old story of the pied piper and had it twisted in an amazing way the plot was unique and the characters were relatable in some way. I honestly don't know how else to write this review but say get your copy if you are into horror and gore.
