Let Darkness Take Hold is an enjoyable novelette and continues Trost's tradition of vengeful horror tales. I couldn't put it down.
Trost has the uncanny ability to quickly develop a story while keeping the resolve at arm's length from the reader until the very end - making his works superb page turners with unexpected twists and deliciously gruesome conclusions.
I would highly recommend this piece to any fan of the genre - and if you aren't a fan yet, then this could very well turn you into one. So let darkness take hold!
