Once Upon A Book – Charlee Rae's Book Reviews

"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"

That Which Should Not Be by Brett Talley

4 out of 5 stars.

The main tale concerns a student of Miskatonic University, Carter Weston, sent to find an ancient tome in a remote village by his professor, Dr. Thayerson. Weston’s journey takes an unexpected turn, however, when he ventures into a tavern in the small town of Anchorhead. Rather than passing the evening as a solitary patron, Weston joins four men who regale him with stories of their personal experiences with forces both preternatural and damned. His unanticipated role as passive listener proves unexpected, and Weston fulfills his goal. Bringing the book back to Miskatonic, though, proves to be a grave mistake. Quickly, Weston realizes he has played a role in potentially opening the gate between the netherworld and the world of Man.

I received a free copy through Goodreads First Reads and I have to say, wow. It was absolutely amazing and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read it. Fans of the horror genre will definitely like these stories and all the twists and turns they take as it finally rolls them all into one. It kept my interest through all the journeys each character took and left me wanting even more. I would definitely recommend this book to any book reader regardless of what genre you prefer.
