Review: The Hour Before Dark

User Review  - Purple Osprey - Goodreads

I'm not a fan of horror or fantasy, but I had to give it five stars. The book is very well written, and very non-american in a way that it doesn't slip into ramblings about ghosts and energies and whatever new-age crap is trending. Also big check mark from me for a not cheesy ending. Read full review

I would enjoy reading horror stories a lot better if more writers would take the trouble to write this well. Read full review
