Book Review: Carrion by Betsy Reavley

Monica has been in a car crash in which she loses her husband and unborn son. Her memories leading up to the accident are buried and she fixates on a crow, who she thinks is following her. Her mother tries her very best to support Monica but the reality of her marriage is the key to her mental salvation.

A really gripping and well-written horror thriller which had me hooked. The underlying sinister element through this book made it a very worthy read indeed. I felt Monica’s devastation to lose essentially everything in a moment but the chilling truth of her life with Tom sent shivers down my back.

A definite must read for horror and psychological thriller fans.

Carrion is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

  1. Back in the 1970s Gary Brandner (“The Howling”–remember that? but you might be too young) had a horror novel called “Carrion.” His novel was very heavily laced with humor, providing some quite unusual effects. I recommend his work to you.
