Little Eve by Catriona Ward 🌟 Arc Review πŸŒŸ

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

This is so much more than what I was expecting even though my expectations were pretty high because I loved The Last House on Needless Street by this author.

After reading the author’s note at the beginning and upon finishing this unsettling gothic horror, I feel like this is somewhat the author’s horror love letter to Scotland… if there can be such a thing. I say that because I felt like much of this story represented different aspects to Scottish folklore so I have a hard time imagining this taking place anywhere else and having the same effect.

The story begins with a local butcher finding the “family” at Altnaharra dead except for one survivor. The story is continued in segments between Eve and Dinah leading up to that day. The father figure, “uncle”, kept the children and young women in thrall with this very chilling religion that also included the Adder, a role the “uncle” would take on. Through starvation and mind games he had control until the spell was broken.

This is so twisted, super dark and absolutely chilling. Not to mention that I simply could not stop reading!
