    Hello, it's me! Your friendly neighborhood BuzzFeed writer! I'm writing here to tell you that this is my very very favorite book. Number. One.

    Promising review: "This is one of the most original and truly disturbing books I’ve ever read. The pacing is spot on, the characters well-defined and Heuvelt creates a believable and frightening world of a village under siege by a force beyond understanding. A finely wrought and pervasive malevolence haunts the villagers and their ways of coping with their reality are all at once brave, sympathetic, bizarre, humorous and truly savage. This is a great psychological thriller that is deliberately paced and leads inexorably to a devastating finale. Odd, quirky, bizarre, frightening and truly disturbing." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49.

    several cards on display
    Amazon
