It was passed down from generation to generation. The legend of the Dark 'Un, the strange beast that roamed Pale Dove Mountain. The dark monster that no one had ever seen -- at least not and lived to tell about it -- except, so it was said, old Fletcher Brice who lived at the foot of the mountain.

And my standards have risen a bit.

Full review to come.

It is entertaining but does not ...more

This book was fantastic. A wildly imaginative blend of horror, science fiction, fantasy and good old southern folklore. Kelly is quickly becoming one of my favorite genre authors. He's a truly original voice in horror lit. Recommended for those who want to read something very different.

The "monsters" are very cool and the story is great fun. The characters' relationships are tied up a bit too neatly at the end.
