This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This one took me a little time to get into, but once I did, I enjoyed the story and the characters as well as its interesting world (or worlds). I don't know that I've read much dark fiction/horror; this was probably at my limit. Sounds like Scot's other books aren't for me, but I'd be interested to read other similarly 'graphic' books by the author in the future.

Alas another book I didn't receive. Would like to have had the opportunity to read it. Hopefully it was a good read. I will have to pay closer attention to whether I have received the books I have won.

A Dark and Sinister Tale of a Very Broken Soul

Isobel is the broken soul, and if you are seeking a story that explores the psyche of the broken, then this is it. Because Isobel was abused. And this story, set in the near future in the midst of the Second Great Midwest Dust Storms, is less about where the broken girl is going and more about why she is where she is.

It's not pretty. Nor is Isobel, as her appearance literally pays homage to the girl from The Ring. There is a grotesque and heartbreaking nature to the things Isobel endures, a twisted wreck on the side of the road from which we can’t avert our eyes. The story explores Isobel's vulnerability and the lengths she will go to to survive.

This story is not fun. But it is well written. A deeply explored character piece for sure. I cringed while reading this. But I can’t shake the depth it holds. Well done.
