She Who Rules the Dead by Maria Abrams Review

Today Alex recommends SHE WHO RULES THE DEAD by Maria Abrams. We hope you'll check it out! 

She Who Rules the Dead by Maria Abrams

"Henry has received a message: he needs to sacrifice five people to the demon that's been talking to him in his nightmares. He already has four, and number five, Claire, is currently bound in the back of his van.

Too bad Claire isn't exactly human."

Alex's Review

Yes, please! SHE WHO RULES THE DEAD is the debut novella from Maria Abrams and she comes out swinging. This novella is so unique, both in plot and formatting. Switching from a few POVs as well as news articles, interviews/transcripts, etc, it is not totally clear what is going on the whole time. Each chapter is another piece of the puzzle that is complete at the end. The story is extremely fast-paced and the writing is sharp. This is an example of a story where less is more in terms of upfront knowledge of the actual plot. With that being said, I think everyone should pick this one up and find out for themselves exactly what I am refusing to divulge with this review.
