Here's my review:
A new and refreshing take on the Young Adult horror genre
The Atheist’s Daughter by Renee Harrell is a new and refreshing take on the Young Adult horror genre. You’d think that after there have been so many books written in this genre that it would be difficult to come up with a storyline that is both original and exciting, but Harrell has done just that. I’ve read a considerable amount of horror stories and I have never seen or heard of the evil creatures of this type that haunt this gripping book.
This well crafted and subtle novel crackles with energy and tension and moves convincingly to a very satisfying conclusion. The principal characters are well developed and extremely believable. The mysterious evil specters that provide the horror are frightening and interesting in the tradition of classic horror stories. I hope in future novels we learn more about the evil monsters of the – Unending and the mysterious protagonist Kristin.
The main strength of the author is to develop characters that the reader will care about and they do so in a fashion that makes the plot move along quickly without any boring phases.
The author has perfectly set this book up to be continued in a sequel and I look forward to the next chapter in what I hope will be a series.
