I bought this book because I saw a blurb from Stephen King praising it. While the story was good, and I liked the main characters, I saw the conclusion coming long before the end of the book and it wasn't as well-written as I would have liked. I'm not sure where the comparisons to Stephen King's work are coming from, this novel wasn't nearly as inventive, well-written, or compelling as one of King's. I did enjoy reading "The Burn Palace" but it wasn't great.

This book was really disappointing to me. I struggled through it but really did not enjoy it.

I've read rave reviews on this book, including one from no less an expert in writing than Stephen King.  I wish I could agree with them, but I neither liked nor hated this book.  It just sort of “was”. Mystery and horror combine as unexplained deaths occur in Brewster, Rhode Island.  Along with sightings of a few unnaturally large – and organized – wolves.  To say much more would risk providing the spoilers which I absolutely hate to discover in a review. Why didn't this book grab me?  Perhaps it was because found I never actually grew attached to the characters of Brewster – I neither hated nor loved them; they just “were”.  In addition, I was disappointed in the resolution (again, I cannot detail without major spoilers).   As such, the only thing I can say is that out of all of the books I read in 2014 – this was one of them. RATING: 3 stars,. DISCLOSURE: This book was provided free of charge by the publisher without obligation.  I'm sure they will appreciate an unbiased posted review, but probably wish I was more enthralled with it.
