For lovers of shadow realms hidden behind a thin veneer of normality, Home by Carson Buckingham will offer a tantalising glimpse into a world of mysteries. Kate Kavanagh has tried her entire life to fit in--and this need of acceptance from those around her has resulted in her marrying an unsuitable sociopath of a husband.

At its heart Home is a tale about Kate's inescapable acceptance of her fate and how it changes her. Her passive acceptance of events around her is maddening at times. The first

With "Home," Buckingham's put out a work of dark fantasy of the kind to make Caitlín R. Kiernan smile, and yet the work's not derivative or copy-cattish, not of Kiernan's work, or that of anyone else. Instead, the tale is all Buckingham.

Kate Kavanagh’s life is changing, in many ways. Secrets, weird allies, and changing views of the world are only few of the elements Kate has to face to carry on with her life.

I was pleasantly surprised that 'Home' turned into a dark fairytale, as I can never find enough of dark fairytales to read that don't involve someone falling in love and living HEA--that type of story is not a dark fairytale.
