My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So, I immediately bought the next book, just like I said!
After Whiddershins, I kind of wondered how the story could go on, what would happen, and if it would be nearly as good as the first… it was. It really was.
Threshold follows our favorite philologist, detective, and archeologist trio as they go to investigate the strange happenings at a mine Whyborne’s father has a stake in, a mine in a godforsaken gorge in the middle of the wilderness at the base of Threshold Mountain. With frightful stories of disappearances of anyone who goes into the woods – and some who didn’t – after the discovery of a cave in the forest, I knew that this was going to get creepy, but DANG it got dark!
I would say this reminds me of Hound of the Baskervilles meets At The Mountains of Madness. It gets very creepy and super dark. There’s some really frightening stuff in this book and I loved every second of it. Also, Christine is still my favorite person in the whole book.
I cannot WAIT to get to the next book.
