Review; Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

A while ago I ended up reading Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
From the New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn comes a breathtaking and spine-tingling novel about three teenage girls who face off against an insidious monster that preys upon young women. Perfect for fans of Victoria Schwab and Stranger Things.

Who are the Sawkill Girls?

Marion: The newbie. Awkward and plain, steady and dependable. Weighed down by tragedy and hungry for love she’s sure she’ll never find.

Zoey: The pariah. Luckless and lonely, hurting but hiding it. Aching with grief and dreaming of vanished girls. Maybe she’s broken—or maybe everyone else is.

Val: The queen bee. Gorgeous and privileged, ruthless and regal. Words like silk and eyes like knives; a heart made of secrets and a mouth full of lies.

Their stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock, where gleaming horses graze in rolling pastures and cold waves crash against black cliffs. Where kids whisper the legend of an insidious monster at parties and around campfires. Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight…until now.

My Thoughts on the Book
Sawkill Girls is an atmospheric, haunting and eerie read with multiple POV's. It's certainly a character-driven plot and the characters are well-developed, flawed and complex, even if one might not like all of their traits. It's also to a certain extent a feminist horror story with diverse characters. One of them being black and asexual, while another one is bi.

Sawkill Girls are certainly worth the read.
