Skullbelly

Skullbelly - Ronald Malfi I read this novella in a matter of an hour or two.

I found this to be an unique take on the horror story. There were no big scary monsters. There was no fog or atmospheric chill in the air. There were no ghosts or phantoms.

What there was was an interesting story about 3 missing kids and one surviving kid, covered in blood and now in a coma. What happened to the missing teens? Will the surviving teen wake up and tell what happened? You will have to read this story to find out.

This was a subtle read with no jump scares. The writing was excellent and the denouement was awesome, even without a big reveal at the end. If you like subtle writing skills that can deliver a punch, this novella may be the one for you. Recommended!
