David Pierce needs a job and the offer from Hydro Development seems to
be the answer to his family’s needs. His marriage has been
teetering on the brink of disaster from the economic strain after he
left his previous job with questionable references. The plant is in an
isolated area but David, his wife Helen, and daughter Jessica, believe
they can make things work. But what about the recent horrors that
have occurred in the town of Jackson? Death is lurking for the
Pierce family and Jessica, who is uncannily perceptive, sees it all
Classic horror! THE BONE FACTORY hits all the right notes as Nate
Kenyon expertly weaves a dark and eerie tale that is reminiscent of the
masters of the genre. The vivid imagery evokes the lonely echoes of the
town of Jackson and highlights the isolation the Pierce family
experiences. The terror is intensified as it becomes
overwhelmingly obvious that this could happen to anyone; the realistic
nature of the overall storyline is startling.
Nate Kenyon does a magnificent job at atmosphere but it is in the area
of character development that he really steps it up a notch.
David’s plight, particularly in today’s economic times, is easily
understandable. One can’t help but admire him for his
determination to do the right things even in the face of
adversity. And Jessica… what can I say about her except that Nate
Kenyon captures her voice perfectly.
THE BONE FACTORY is a phenomenal addition to the genre. While
this is the first book I’ve read by Nate Kenyon, I can guarantee it
will not be the last. Bravo!
