4 AND 1/2 STARS.

This is hands down one of the best horror books of the year. It's the writer's job to take you by the hand and lead you on a journey. However, Gifune doesn't just grab your hand. He yanks at your hair and pulls you by the neck, never allowing you to take even a single breath. He delights in smothering you in evil for 300 fantastic pages.

Children Of Chaos is filled with vivid characters and a fascinating and addictive premise. Gifune's writing is smooth and poetic and wonderfully consistent with its darkness and tone. That being said, I did think the showdown was slightly muddled and too close to Apocolypse Now / Heart Of Darkness for my taste. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this book is near perfect. Anyone calling themselves a fan of this genre needs to pick this book up fast. I'll be getting the rest of Gifune's titles for sure.
