Not being a regular reader of horror
stories I wasn't sure what to expect, but it just so happened
that I was in the mood for something dark, sinister, and creepy
and strangely enough, The Children Of Llothora did the trick!
From the start from with the surreal
description of the main protagonists's neighbours
to the clawing suffocation 'The Children Of Llothora' is
very cinematically and descriptive wording, clearly considered, by author Grant Hoeflinger.
The character of the main story, though we are not
immediately introduced, is clearly troubled,
sentimental, reminiscing of the past
which leads to a terrible personal revelation- sudden, almost
like the end of a first chapter of a book
that maybe ought to be developed into
a larger book.
Gripping writing, nevertheless. Maybe not amongst commercial horror fans,
what with the horror genre being so mainstreamed these days as faux teenager romance
but 'The Children Of Llothora ' definately deserves it's own cult following.
