Book Review: The Faceless One
Not since Jeff Gunhus's Night Chill have I been so creeped out by a book! If you want a good, scary story to read for the Halloween season, grab a copy of The Faceless One. But if you do, be prepared to have a major case of the heebie-jeebies! (read: warning - graphic!)
There are many different angles and perspectives in this story, but rest assured that they will all come together somehow. A man in a nursing home, a police detective, a suburban family - the Big Bad Thing (aka faceless one) is tormenting everyone in some way. Previously held prisoner in Alaska, it's out and world destruction is at the top of it's to-do list.
I read through this book in less than a week. I really had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. If you like mystery, sci-fi and gore, read this book. It's also got a bit of history to it, although fictional. Mark Onspaugh did a wonderful job of creating an intricate, convincing plot.
