Back in October, Amy interviewed the authors of Creed, Lindsay Currie and Trisha Leaver. I’m curious who’s read since then, and if you haven’t yet (like me), we can discuss it this month. I’ve also made some reading resolutions this year (maybe you have too), so this will help with accountability. Fun, right?
Here’s a synopsis:
Three went in. Three came out. None even a shadow of who they once were.
When their car breaks down, Dee, her boyfriend Luke, and his brother Mike walk through a winter storm to take refuge in a nearby town called Purity Springs. When they arrive, the emergency sirens are blaring and the small farming town seems abandoned. With no other shelter, they spend the night in an empty house.
But they soon discover that not everything in Purity Springs is as it seems. When the town’s inhabitants suddenly appear the next morning, Dee, Luke, and Mike find themselves at the mercy of the charismatic leader, Elijah Hawkins, who plans to make Dee his new wife. Elijah’s son, Joseph, offers to help them escape . . . but the price of his help may be more than Dee and her friends can bear.
Sounds groovy, huh? Rather than a live event, you can post below at any time regarding the book.
Here are some general discussion topics to get us started, but when the book comes in later this week, I’ll start posting some more specific ideas:
- Favorite quotes
- Thinking like a writer–what can we learn from these two as authors of horror?
- Genre development: while there’s still room for the supernatural in horror, a lot of agents are requesting psychological/realistic horror right now. What does this book teach us?
Who has already read Creed? Who’s in for this month?
