“Last but not least, there are two elements that Chandler handles very well and make this book worth a read: sex and gore. Two staples of horror, sex and gore are used here to add to the story instead of becoming the story. The women turn into homicidal nymphomaniacs, but there is a powerful reason behind it and they undergo a spooky psychological process that makes the change very interesting to read about. Similarly, gore is used at irregular intervals, which heightens its effect. For example, a regular housewife tearing off her husband’s penis with her teeth is something that stick with you after finishing the book.
If you’re looking for a story that seems like a classic spun into something entirely new, give Daemon of the Dark Wood a chance.”
