T. Kingfisher – The Twisted Ones

When a young woman clears out her deceased grandmothers home in rural North Carolina, she finds long-hidden secrets about a strange colony of beings in the woods in this chilling novel that comes across like The Blair Witch Project meets The Andy Griffith Show.

When Mouses dad asks her to clean out her dead grandmother’s house, she says yes. After all, how bad could it be?

Answer: pretty bad. Grandma was a hoarder, and her house is stuffed with useless rubbish. That would be horrific enough, but theres more – Mouse stumbles across her step-grandfathers journal, which at first seems to be filled with nonsensical rants…until Mouse encounters some of the terrifying things he described for herself.

Alone in the woods with her dog, Mouse finds herself face-to-face with a series of impossible terrors – because sometimes, the things that go bump in the night are real, and theyre looking for you. And if she doesnt face them head-on, she might not survive to tell the tale.

From Hugo Award-winning author Ursula Vernon, writing as T. Kingfisher, The Twisted Ones is a gripping, terrifying tale bound to keep you up all night – from both fear and anticipation of what happens next.

I got this book because I read reviews of how terrifying it was. It isn’t scary at all. It gets a bit repetitive and there main character doesn’t seem to show she is terrified when she says she is. The reader also plays into the bland story and her performance is mostly monotone with terrible accents and no emotion. To each their own I guess, but if you’re a fan of Stephen King…. I’d stay far away from this “horror” story.
