The title for Dead Man’s Curve by Alex Van Tol made me curious, so here I am, telling you about this horrifying novella. Like a true horror story, I knew it would not end well.
The kids were taking a shortcut home after the Halloween party. Hmmm, think something wicked this way comes.
After hitting someone or something and hearing a cry, they search the woods. Oh no, we all know not to go there!!
Blaire Witch meet Stephen King. I was already leery of clowns and this only reinforced it.
Wait..is that the house settling, or…
Alex Van Tol grabbed me, twisted me, not letting me go until I found all the answers.
Dead Man’s Curve was not what I thought it would be and the ending only confirmed Alex Van Tol’s ability to take a rollercoaster of a ride horror story to frightening level. And, no, I did not figure it out until the very end. He totally surprised and the ending left me flabbergasted. Great job, Alex!
I received a copy of Dead Man’s Curve from Alex Van Tol.
Summary from Goodreads:
The road to Hell passes through Dead Man’s Curve.
It’s been two years since Booker broke up with Rachel, and he wants to get her back. Only problem is, he doesn’t realize it until he and his four friends are hip-deep in a deadly nightmare. They’ve run over a wispy figure on the highway on Halloween night and now something is preying on them, one by one, going after their deepest fears.
Lost and scared in the New England wilderness, the group realizes they’re trapped in their own twisted version of The Blair Witch Project. They’re powerless against dark forces. When Rachel’s life is threatened, Booker realizes it’s up to him to figure out a way to stop the unholy madness.
If he’s man enough to face it head on.
