The Fallen: A Novel

The Fallen - Dale Bailey

This is one of my favorite [new to me] horror novels of this year.

 

I think if you are not a gore-hound, but someone looking to start reading the genre, this would be perfect.

 

There is some rape, child abuse, and animal death (but not overly graphic).

 

I thought the writing was well done, and the build-up of tension and mystery was well-done. The various story-lines were all tied up seamlessly.
