Twin Lakes: The Autumn Fires By Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason (Sisters of Slaughter)

I’ve only read one book by two different authors before. Needless to say I didn’t like it. You could see where one author ended and the other began. It wasn’t seamless and it was hard to get through as you could see two different writing styles. However, in our wonderful horror community we have the Sister’s of Slaughter. A twin sister horror writing team who where able to meld two separate voices into one in Twin Lakes: The Autumn Fires.

Summary:A hitch hiker lands in a bunch of trouble in a small town with secrets.

What I liked: I really enjoyed the story. It almost felt like two stories wrapped in one. The hitch hiker story and the ancestors story. But the sisters writing really draws the two stories together seamlessly. The characters where very well written and three dimensional. As a reader the motivations of each character was clear and crisp. The setting was well written and draws the reader in. The pacing was spot on. There were no parts of the story that dragged at any point or where I felt the pacing was slipping.

What I didn’t like: I would have liked more of a backstory to the ancestors. We got to glimpse into the past but I feel it was like a snack sized bite in a whole world that can be built on.

Star Rating:4 Stars

My thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. There were supernatural elements, beasties and demons. There were no real love type relationships in the book but the friendships that are peppered throughout the story are heart warming and don’t feel forced. As a reader you want to meet some of the people that are players in this drama that is unfolding before your eyes. This is a story when you start reading it you don’t have a full idea as too the talents of each character. But by the end you are rooting for the good guys and hoping the bad guy losses. I can’t wait to read more from the Sisters’ of slaughter!!!
