Melanie V””V #NerdGirlVamp
Title: Chapelwood (The Borden Dispatches #2)
Author: Cherie Priest
Published Date: September 1st 2015
Genre: Horror / Dark Fantasy
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
From Cherie Priest, the award-winning author of Maplecroft, comes a new tale of Lizzie Borden’s continuing war against the cosmic horrors threatening humanity…
Birmingham, Alabama is infested with malevolence. Prejudice and hatred have consumed the minds and hearts of its populace. A murderer, unimaginatively named “Harry the Hacker” by the press, has been carving up citizens with a hatchet. And from the church known as Chapelwood, an unholy gospel is being spread by a sect that worships dark gods from beyond the heavens.
This darkness calls to Lizzie Borden. It is reminiscent of an evil she had dared hoped was extinguished. The parishioners of Chapelwood plan to sacrifice a young woman to summon beings never meant to share reality with humanity. An apocalypse will follow in their wake which will scorch the earth of all life.
Unless she stops it…
***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***
I love the history surrounding Lizzie Borden and the true crime facts and having just finished book 1 I was eager to get to book 2.
As with the first book in the series book 2 continues with a very Lovecraftian feel which I do rather enjoy. Although listed as a duology, this second installment could totally be rad as a stand alone with no real relevant knowledge from book 1 coming into play.
I personally enjoyed book 1 a little more than this one although I can’t really put my finger on a reason why. The writing is very similar and the story is solid, it just didn’t grab me in quite the same way.
That being said this was still a good horror read and fans of this genre I think will enjoy it.
Another 4 stars from me.
ftian horror books sub genre but it won’t be my last!!
4 Stars and a tip of my Nerd Girl hat!!
