Pub Day REVIEW: The Dead and the Dark

“How our mind rewrites our memories from scratch every time we think something up. If we wanted, we could forget a piece of our lives completely. Just… write over it.”


The Dead and the Dark is a creepy, complex paranormal mystery that should be made into a movie ASAP!
Logan is the daughter of two TV stars who investigate paranormal activity and she firmly believes it’s all bologna. When one of her dads is drawn back to his small town home to investigate a missing teenager, she and her other dad follow him. And then another teenager is killed. There’s a definite body count in this one. The town suspects her dad and after a while she does too. She’s drawn into the mystery and begins to realize that all those creepy things she didn’t believe in… might just be stalking her.

Lots of uncomfortable, hair-raising moments in this one. There’s good character development, we learn a lot about this family and their history in this town. We see their sexuality impacted their ability to live in a small town. Some great moments about standing up for yourself and acceptance scattered through the story. The Dark as a character was fun to read, very Stephen King-esque. I really liked how the character was formed and how things ended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Netgalley for access to this novel. All opinions above are my own.

What’s the last book that sent chills up your spine?
