Omtale; Boy in the Box by Marc E. Fitch

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the horror novel Boy in the Box by Marc E. Fitch through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Ten years ago a mysterious and tragic hunting accident deep in the Adirondack Mountains left a boy buried in a storied piece of land known as Coombs' Gulch and four friends with a terrible secret. Now, Jonathan Hollis and brothers Michael and Conner Braddick must return to the place that changed their lives forever in order to keep their secret buried. What they don't realize is that they are walking into a trap - one set decades earlier by a supernatural being who is not confined by time or place: a demon that demands a sacrifice.

My Thoughts on the Book
Boy in the Box was a creepy read with a bit of unreliable narrators (which of course makes it even more fun read). The plot and story starts a bit slow, but it gains momentum roughly in the middle. The storytelling is amazing, with vivid imagery and great descriptions, which adds up to the creepy-factors. The character development is well done, especially for Jonathan.

It's overall a fascinating horror novel worth the read.
