There is something lurking in the darkness and Andrew Cull has captured it.
The four stories in Bones all deal with death in different ways. The sudden, untimely death of a childhood friend and how that might haunt someone years later, a small town murder and how it affects a young girl, the chilling outcome of visitations from some unknown thing in the woods, and the death of a father and the haunting consequences for a mother of three.
All of these stories weave in and out of the supernatural in that masterful way that makes you check the locks on your own door and take an extra glance at the dark shadows in the night. Here, the dead walk along another plane of existence and they aren't the people you remember.
Cull creates believable situations and characters that you want to hear from. Each story brings something new: ghosts, monsters, a different kind of narrator, but it is obvious that Cull excels at stories about family dynamics.
At the very end, there is an extra short story of just a few pages that might have actually been my favorite piece of writing in the whole book. Very impactful and such a brilliant spooky story in just a few pages.
I can't wait for more from this author! Highly recommended!
