Not bad but I'd like more back story
The Jersey Devil - Hunter Shea

I love a good monster story and this one definitely qualifies. A local legend about a winged beast that sounds part goat, part bat and a few other things makes the woods a spooky and desolate place, yet occasional campers and the odd person hiding a body brave the solitude of the trees. Some don't make it back.

 

As monster stories go this was better than many, but it still lacked something. I think some more of the folklore on the Jersey Devil would have added to the feeling of horror.

 

It was still a good story. Plenty of blood and gore and suspence about when they're going to attack, kind of like in The Birds.

Teenage angst
Demon Flower - Christopher Alan Ott

This was an ok book, but no better. Too much teenage silliness and lack of common sense. The action happens mostly near the end, but even then it was a little flat.

Uneven but fun
End of Days - Susan Ee

I kept wavering between being annoyed by the romantic tumor and cheering from the spurts of awesomeness. Mostly I was carried by the fast current of fun. Some of the swerves in the rapids were umbelivably ridiculous but it floats on the rule of epic I guess. And the quotable anvil commentary.

 

Don't think about it too much and have fun if you strap onto this one.

the pieces are all there
American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition - Neil Gaiman

I knew about the pieces relating to Mr. Wednesday (and Low-Key Liesmith)...

 

But I'm pretty sure Mr. Wednesday just admitted to being involved with Laura's death

 

After apologizing for Laura's death/Shadow's loss:

"The man shook his head.  "If it could have been any other way," he said, and sighed." - pg. 29

(spoiler show)
