Bloodtooth D.W. Hitz After nightmares begin in the small town of Custer Falls, Montana, in 1992, it’ll be thirty years before they end.
Just outside of Custer Falls, something is sleeping. Life in the small town was never ideal, but it was safe, quiet, and predictable. After Wes Henson and his friends' field trip to Bloodtooth Caverns, all of that changes.
All they did was stray off the path. They didn't expect to break their bones and discover an ancient relic. But once it's in Wes's hands, he's the one that has to put it back.
Until he does, the town's nightmares are no longer harmless. The good side of your conscience may go quiet as the devil on your shoulder speaks up. Children fall into comas, while adults are torn to pieces in their sleep.
If Wes and his friends want to survive, they'll have to conquer the waking world and the dreamscape.
Because when this evil is awake, no one's dreams are safe.
Some students take a field trip to Bloodtooth Caverns. A few of them decide to stray off the path. None of them expected what would happen next or that it would haunt them for the next 30 years.
Oh, this book! It is suspenseful, thrilling, and packed with what nightmares are made of. Hitz did a brilliant job with this work of art. His descriptiveness plants you right in the story. It had me on the edge of my seat and feeling all the dread and terror the characters experienced. The sleep demon was haunting, spreading over two timelines and feeding on people’s anxieties and fears. If that isn’t horrible enough, it eventually learned to influence people when they are awake, too.
The characters were well done. I felt an attachment to several of them, especially Wes. Even the few that were repulsive were well thought out. You could just feel the darkness inside of them. All of this creates such a tense build up in the story as you follow their suffering, their sorrow, and the evil that motivates some of them.
Bloodtooth is an outstanding read. I’d recommend it to any horror lover. The graphic gory scenes don’t leave much to the imagination and show exactly what the main characters are up against. For me it was enjoyable, and I was rather surprised at how dark Hitz went with this. I’ve read his work before and enjoyed it, but this book raises the bar. I’d love to read more stuff like this from him in the future.
