Review - Snow Angels

Snow Angels Lucas Mangum Thirty years ago, the town of Silver Lake left a bus full of ex-convicts to die in a snowstorm, and the legend of the Snow Angels was born. Now, the forecast is calling for a blizzard... and murder. The Snow Angels are back for revenge, and no one is safe--not unless a trio of paranormal podcasters and a few brave townspeople can stop them. Snow Angels is a two-time Splatterpunk Award-nominated author Lucas Mangum's ode to classical supernatural horror and a novel about reckoning with the sins of the past.


Silver Lake is bracing for a blizzard. It hasn’t even started yet, and strange things are happening. Power outages, fast temperature drops, and stalling vehicles. These are most likely storm-related events until someone sees “We’re Coming” etched on an icy window. The legend of the Snow Angels is about to come to life and with it many others will lose theirs.

So, I’ll start off by saying Mangum has created an amazing story within this snowy hell. It’s creepy, chilling and is filled with so much uneasiness. When the dead inmates start showing up, their victims get an icy chill that runs up their necks; as the reader, you feel that too. That’s your hint that things are about to get ugly and there is absolutely nothing you can do but watch it all unravel. I enjoyed following all the characters through their trials and how they questioned themselves. Are they going crazy or is something really happening here? It was entertaining to watch the nightmare progress with each one of them. All this turmoil led to an ending that left me a bit stunned.

If you enjoy supernatural horror and snowy environments that will leave you feeling chilled, I definitely recommend this one! I look forward to reading more from this author.
