really liked it

Twins reunited, the Waite girls, a decade apart, on a road journey with strange folk song and wilderness things, possessing of a kind and changing of fates, a mysterious mystery with the hawks in the woods.
The twins dark past will be unveiled with some walking blindly, the narrative slowly burns into your psyche into its finality.

The outer, the apparent, twins looking alike and the Hawks, birds of prey, a beautiful species, and there is the creepy inner crafted by this author that has you eerily look at hawks with different contemplation, just for an instant that is.
I still love the majestic birds of prey despite the authors spin on Hawks, that may for a time have you feel some creepiness with them in your midst.

Nicely crafted with careful withholding, showing, and unveiling, a succumbing haunting tale.
Writing about death, crimes past, kin and sisterhood, with nature and the birds in the framework of cosmic horror.

Thanks to author John Langan for recommending this in my interview with him.
