Bottled Abyss

Bottled Abyss - Benjamin Kane Ethridge

by Benjamin Kane Ethridge

 

This one went strange on me.

 

The first 2/3 was really good. Original concept about the mythological Ferryman who ferrys souls across the Styx river. Lots of action and well defined characters. Then near the end it goes sort of surreal.

 

I enjoyed the read, but not so much the end. Before then the book took me through a lot of strong emotions. The writer is good and I would read something else by him, but I wasn't quite satisfied with this. I don't know how else it could have gone, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to Horror readers. Just expect some weirdness.
