Elder Gods knocking at the gates of reality. Cthulhulian monsters devouring innocent women in the river. Suicides, murders, and mayhem rampant in the streets.
Welcome to Hastings Mills, where an agent of Evil is driving a town to madness and only one man knows how to stop it. But can he defeat his ageless enemy before Hastings Mills is nothing but a smoking ruin and the townspeople become unwilling blood sacrifices to the Old Ones? With only the help of a young woman and her teenage son, he will have to use all of his arcane knowledge to thwart his adversary and prevent the final apocalypse.
I've not read a huge amount from this specific genre. But after reading this, I want to read more. This book is fun and exciting. JG does a great job of keeping you wondering what's going to happen. You want to know what will, but you don't. It's a great read.
I love the characters. JG does a great job of creating an awesome character arc and storyline that surround them. You get really invested in them and what to see what JG is going to throw at them next.
The mixing of the myths in, add another flavor to it.
This is a great book, I recommend it those that enjoy Lovecraft and this genre.
