Starts out slow but steadily builds momentum. I was completely absorbed by the end. It was really good, with several gruesome scenes reminding me of The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey.
Loved it. It is a kind of Lovecraft Mythos book, but it has its own style and its own pacing. The characters come to life, and the story gains momentum as it goes along until you just can't stop reading. What is puzzling at first becomes disturbing and then horrifying. You really care what happens to these people, and you will remember the story long after finishing it.
