It’s been a while since I read my first love, Horror. When I saw an opportunity to read Silk by L.M. Pruitt, I jumped at the chance. The premise was intriguing and didn’t disappoint.

Ms. Pruitt has woven a dark and foreboding place in Silk, GA. The three main characters are Elias, Shepard and Isaiah, three friends who survived the Mulberry Massacre, but have suffered the wounds of trauma. They are complex and flawed in the best possible way. Despite their weaknesses, I really grew to love and ha

Good story! Poorly Edited

This was a good book. The characters were honest. By that I mean you could really feel for them and understand where they were coming from. My only reason for not giving it five stars was the editing. Who ever edited this needs to be fired. The mistakes were everywhere. It was a serious issue in reading it. You can find a few mistakes in almost ever book you pick up but there were dozens in this one.

My review will be short, but will say a lot in a few words: I am blown away with this author's work. So yes, typos and grammar mistakes are numerous, but boy...I am so reading something else of hers!

They call it the murder tree, the Litz tree in a small town called Silk. The Litz family murdered several children. Once upon a time the town's inhabitants took their revenge at the Litz family by hanging them all. Ever since those days children like to go camping and tell the story of how the tree became the murder tree all those years ago.

In 1995, twenty kids went camping in the woods. Only three of them made it out alive. The crime scene was horrific and some of the personal items they had wi

Most of us have memories of being a kid and camping out with friends, scaring each other silly with campfire stories. Most small towns have those stories that leave history and enter mythology. When the legends meet the campfire stories, we usually remember jumping at shadows and then laugh in the light of day. Eli Crenshaw and his best friends Shep Jackson and Isaiah Graves weren't so lucky. The night they went camping with 17 of their classmates ended with those 17 classmates dead, Shep and El ...more

Shelves: mystery, suspense, horror
The introduction hooks you immediately, with a group of kids camping out in the woods and telling tales of the gruesome murders that founded their town way-back-when. The legend they share is entrancing, but just as interesting is watching the teens interact with each other and seeing the foundations of maturing relationships blossoming in their introductions. That, and the horrifying, yet not fully spelled out incident that follows, setting up the broken nature of the characters when we flash f ...more

L.M. Pruitt has been reading since before she can remember, and writing nearly as long.

She is the best selling author of the Jude Magdalyn series, the Moon Rising series, the Frankie Post series, and the Winged series. She makes her home in Florid ...more
