Read Time:39 Second
I picked this up as a audiobook and then got the Kindle version – or maybe it was vice versa, on a recent office trip, and generally enjoyed it. It was well written, and an interesting take on the Lovecraft mythos, although it had less Lovecraft to it than any Lovercraftian fiction I've ever read. Usually stories load the narrative up with shoggoths et al. right out of the box because they love the universe so much. This book seemed almost uninterested in the actual corpus compared to telling the story in the book. Which you have to respect. It will be interesting whether the subsequent books delve more deeply into HPL, or simply continue with the story (and universe) this book has created.
