Review: Horns By: Joe Hill

HornsHorns by Joe Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ignatius Perrish awakes on the anniversary of the murder of his love Merrin with horns.
He knows he went to the site last night and from there things get hazy. There is something strange about them - the fact that people forget that they are there - the fact they tell him their darkest thoughts - or how about the fact people ask him about whether doing dark deeds will be a good idea and ask permission.
This leads Ig on a journey into the darkness within to find out what happened to Merrin, to search for her killer. As he searches, he creeps into the deepest darkest recesses of the people around him and finds things that he wished he never did. The pursuit is on and embracing what he has become and the power that it wields is the only way he can begin to seek out the revenge that is due. There is no turning back.
This is a dark tale of revenge filled with humor and the wanderings of the inner workings of those all around us. I found this book so delicious, I devoured the book in one sitting refusing to put it down.
