FROM GOODREADS:
Riverdale meets Stephen King in the terrifying new thriller from the author of Harrow Lake. 
The town of Burden Falls drips with superstition, from rumors of its cursed waterfall to Dead-Eyed Sadie, the disturbing specter who haunts it. Ava Thorn grew up right beside the falls, and since a horrific accident killed her parents a year ago, she's been plagued by nightmares in which Sadie comes calling—nightmares so chilling, Ava feels as if she’ll never wake up. But when someone close to Ava is brutally murdered and she’s the primary suspect, she begins to wonder if the stories might be more than legends—and if the ghost haunting her dreams might be terrifyingly real. Whatever secrets Burden Falls is hiding, there's a killer on the loose . . . with a vendetta against the Thorns. 

When I saw the Riverdale comparison I just knew I had to read this book.  While there's no Jughead, there are plenty of other characters to keep things interesting.  So to shake things up, I'm just sharing with you 15 Reactions I Had While Reading This Book.  You'll just have to read it to see how they play into the plot!

  1. Is a year really long enough for a body to knit itself whole?
  2. I want to see a tree full of ghost apples - how pretty!
  3. Aha!  THAT explained the cover.
  4. Ava needs a new car, but its so funny she praises Lucifer whenever it starts on the first try.
  5. Pepperoni never did me wrong either.
  6. THE FLYS!!! I can't believe the author referenced The Flys (runs off singing "Got you where I want you."
  7. Because of COVID the town started holding outdoor celebrations of important events called Danse Macabres.  What a great idea.
  8. Much respect to Daphne's Dimple Theory - I agree.
  9. Dead-Eyed Sadie is one spooky urban legend.
  10. Every phone needs a claw-back function to retract texts.
  11. That dog better not die!
  12. DON'T GO IN THE CELLAR!!!!
  13. I too have a thing for shark movies Ava :)
  14. Nerdy vampires - nice visual.
  15. What an intense ending!
RATING: 5 PAWS
