The Faceless OneThe Faceless One by Mark Onspaugh

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


An ancient evil has been unearthed in Alaska and it seeks the proper human host to bring the world incalculable pain and suffering. Only former shaman Jimmy Kalmaku, now an old man in a retirement home, fully understands what is going on and can stop it. This first novel had some genuinely creepy and scary moments, along with a strong villain with a strong sense of menace. Some of the writing is a bit clunky, though, and it feels like it could have used more editing to tighten up the story, ratchet up the suspense, and keep a more continuous pace (there are times it really drags out). Overall, though, it's a decent horror novel with some memorable moments.


[This review is based on an e-galley from netgalley.com. The book will be released on October 28, 2013.]
