Overall, I really enjoyed the horror elements within this novel, but it felt dry and long-winded in between all of the dark and creepy moments. It is north of Frederica at the interchange between Delaware Route 1 and Bowers Beach Road/Clapham Road. The story and characters were compelling, but I especially liked the seemingly idiosyncratic details Cutter sometimes adds to make things a little stranger. While this book is just under 500 pages, which isn’t terrible in terms of length, it felt much longer. Then, the book went from slow to confusing to horrifying really quickly and left me on edge until the last page.

It is a religious haven but, soon, something evil arrives in Little Heaven and nothing will ever be the same…. Micah, Minerva and Ebenezer are all 'gunslingers' if you will, working as bounty hunters, hit men and such. It was slightly reminiscent of Stephen King (in character development and in that the setting of the book was almost a character of its own), and caused flashbacks of The Twilight Zone. Next, while things seemed to kind of churn around in one place for too long with nothing really going on, the ending wound up being pretty satisfactory.No I don’t give 2 stars often, and I was so crushed about giving it to this one because I really wanted to like it! While the dark and disturbing elements worked well, it was everything in between that forced me to bring my rating down. But there is something else lurking in the woods surrounding the camp, and the residents live in fear. That’s what Cutter tries and succeeds to convey in this novel (adorned by reproductions of some pivotal scenes by famed artist Adam Gorham).

The image that Cutter sets forward never leaves us and give us the kind of promise that he delivered in his first books.

But what’s going on the compound itself is no less horrific, as children begin disappearing, and people turn the other way, never wanting to acknowledge what’s happening. Whether that’s because they’re blinded by faith, or something supernatural, doesn’t matter; what matters is that it happens. Before we get there, though, Cutter divvies his antihero protagonists' stories across the time stream, jumping back and forth between 1980 and 1966.

Placed throughout the book are illustrations by Adam Gorham as well, who helps bring the characters to life and gives face to things you’d rather not see.Outside of “No Country for Old Men” I’m not terribly acquainted with the genre, but if you have three mercenaries hired to check out a small town in the middle of nowhere, with little trust between the three of them, I feel like that just screams Western.

When the three mercenaries show up at Little Heaven, it doesn't take long for them to realize that the name of the place is incredibly misleading. so, yeah, the pen name is a little bit of an honorific for my son, too; we'll see, in time, if he thinks that was such a hot idea! rounded up because i freaking love nick cutter, but this one falls into that particular brand of horror i've just never been able to get into, which is my own taste-fail, not the book's fault. Overall though, this tale's creativity and imagination beckoned to me like a bright star moving across the sky, and I willingly followed it-right down into the dark below the big, black rock.Against a backdrop painted in many shades of human evil, from hired killers to religious fanaticism, Cutter strips the whitewash from the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, revealing an unspeakable horror. As most of you know, I tend to enjoy everything dark and creepy, so this element of the book worked extremely well for me. Indeed, take everything I say here with a grain of salt since the vast majority of other reviews I’ve seen so far have been positively glowing.
