Read full description of the books:
In the silent wormy darkness, he waits…
There is one very important factor to remember when reviewing a book like this: namely, it has corn fields.
The dark shape hunched over [the corpse] raised its head and looked at him without expression for a long moment, and then the bloody mouth opened in a great smile full of immense darkness and hunger, lips parting to reveal hideous teeth that were grimed with pink-white tatters of flesh.
Indeedy. It’s like that…
…but it also isn’t. See, Dead Man’s Song is actually a slower burner (compared to its predecessor), but the end result is every bit as rewarding. I really enjoyed the first book in the Pine Deep Trilogy (Ghost Road Blues), and imagine my pleasant surprise when the author himself commented on my review, even if it was to set me straight on one or two things. This second instalment in the trilogy, takes off exactly where the first book stopped. And boy, does it ever.
The dead body in the mound was struggling to sit up. It pushed dirt away from its mouth, pushed at the heavy clods, clawed at the soft soil for purchase until it sat erect. Then it turned a dirt-smeared white face at [him] and smiled. [He] screamed once, a shrill, tearing scream of absolute horror, and ran.
It’s a veritable labyrinth (conspiracy) of evil that reaches back decades. Expect some shocking revelations regarding a few of the main players. I appreciated the additional information regarding the Black Harvest and the fate of Oren Morse. The story is just so much greater once it starts making sense.
I do suggest, though, that you don’t let grass grow beneath your feet between books, otherwise you will be at least a bit lost. This particular entry also requires a bit of a paradigm shift on the reader’s part; if I learnt anything from Dead Man’s Song, it’s not to make any assumptions about where a story is headed.
This whole thing was giving him an increasingly bad feeling.
It’s atmospheric stuff all round, and while comparisons with Stephen King have been drawn I found that it really isn’t quite the same. This is a good thing: while there are definite echoes of the likes of 'Salem's Lot, Maberry clearly has his own voice. I highly recommend this whole trilogy (so far) to readers who enjoy big horror stories.
He did not notice that all of the trees around him with filled with crows, each of them watching him with bottomless black eyes.
