The Smell of Ginger

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
It's Halloween in Jasper, Texas and Butch and Suzy are driving with their dad to trick or treat at the strip mall and the local churches. They didn't count on the truck breaking down, getting lost in the woods, or coming across the ordinary old cabin, but there's nothing ordinary about the tenants - two spinster sisters who have been waiting eternally for children to call their own.

An awesome twist on a classic tale! I absolutely loved this book! It was truly gruesome and terrifying. Parts of it literally made me cringe and say OH NO! NO! out loud. It was very well written and the story flowed flawlessly. I would recommend this book to anyone!

Review by: Blaze McRob on June 24, 2013 :
The Smell Of Ginger is a masterpiece of horror! Timothy C. Hobbs has done what very few authors are able to do: get all the elements right; back story where and when necessary; plenty of description, but not to the point where you gag on it-I hate it when some authors do that; and a fast moving story which will keep you on the edge of your seat. The protagonists and antagonists both are superbly drawn and are highly believable. I need to read more of this great author's work. He is comparable to the best the genre has to offer.
