Review; Slash by Hunter Shea

When I came across Slash by Hunter Shea, I couldn't resist reading it as I have a weak spot for 80's and 90's slasher movies. Today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Five years after Ashley King survived the infamous Resort Massacre, she’s found hanging in her basement by her fiancé, Todd Matthews. She left behind clues as to what really happened that night, clues that may reveal the identity of the killer the press has called The Wraith.

With the help of his friends, Todd goes back to the crumbling Hayden Resort, a death-tinged ruin in the Catskills Mountains. What they find is a haunted history that’s been lying in wait for a fresh set of victims. The Wraith is back, and he’s nothing what they expected.

My Thoughts on the Book
Slash was a fun book for those who love gory slasher movies from the 80's and 90's. Run down area, ill-prepared friends and something (or someone) lurking around. It's a horror novel that would be suitable for a movie adaption. The book has a good pace with a few twists and turns, which made it even more engaging. Of course the book also plays a bit on a few horror tropes, such as the ill-prepared group of friends, a run down area, a killer monster and the whole "final girl" concept.

There were perhaps a couple of places where I would love a bit more depth to the story and a few scenes that were a bit confusing in terms of which characters were there or not (all of a sudden X was mentioned, even if I thought person X wasn't even there to begin with, for instance). There's also some cringe/cramp dialogue a couple of places.

Overall, Slash was a fun and entertaining read, even with the minor issues.
