This book isn’t what I thought it would be from the description and I most likely wouldn’t have read it if I picked it up in a bookstore. That being said, I enjoyed it.
The novel is partly action-driven, with a large portion character-driven and slow at times, but what you learn about the characters can be fascinating. The reader discovers along with the characters that they may not be what they always thought and by the end of the story, some have undergone tremendous growth – some not so much.
Changing narratives allowed different perspectives and aided in explanation of the “evil spirits” and the writing was so descriptive I could easily picture the intense action along the river. Not everything in this novel is black and white, leaving some things up to reader interpretation and I like a book that makes me think.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys outdoorsy man vs. man vs. nature action/adventure along with some introspective characters.
I received a digital ARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
