REVIEW: The Girl in the Corn

They always said in the old fairy tales you shouldn’t eat anything a fairy gives you. Boy, does Thomas learn that lesson the hard way in this one. As a young child he is dazzled by a tiny girl in his family’s corn field, she does what she can to tempt him but he resists. The story follows Thomas as he encounters her over and over in his life. She repeatedly tries to convince him that he is the only one who can save his world from an evil force known as the Dauðr. He is a fearful person and ends up at one point in a mental hospital where he crosses paths with some other unusual characters. Thomas and these characters hurtle towards an epic battle as some are determined to destroy the world and some to save it.

This one has great creepy vibes, there are some allusions to Stephen King but they’re handled as an homage more than a direct pull, which I totally appreciate. I felt like the tone was more Dean Koontz than anything. I loved that fairies were portrayed in the traditional tricky manner. There is a lot of violence so if that is not your bag, then skip this one. But I loved the darkness! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Blackthorn Book Tours for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.

What setting do you find to be the most creepy?
