It’s been a while since I read my first love, Horror. When I saw an opportunity to read Silk by L.M. Pruitt, I jumped at the chance. The premise was intriguing and didn’t disappoint.
Ms. Pruitt has woven a dark and foreboding place in Silk, GA. The three main characters are Elias, Shepard and Isaiah, three friends who survived the Mulberry Massacre, but have suffered the wounds of trauma. They are complex and flawed in the best possible way. Despite their weaknesses, I really grew to love and hate them.
Pruitt has an easy style and weaves the darkness into a visual display. I couldn’t put the book down and had to find out what happened. I was extremely satisfied with the end, as well as the progression and growth of the characters, or lack thereof.
My only issue with this book is a need to be proofed. There are several instances where the word in the book is wrong. At first I thought it might be a local thing, but as the book went on I realized the words were similar but incorrect. Despite this issue, I was still enthralled and loved it. If you are looking for a dark, gritty read, this one is for you.
