Inhaltsangabe zu „Unseemly: A Novella of Horror“ von Jason Parent

Some discoveries are better left unmade. Peter thought he was done with grave robbing, but when a former business partner lures him out to Dungarradh, a small Scottish island with a big secret, he finds himself waist deep in more than local folklore. Is the disappearance of his teammate truly the work of the legendary fae, or is a sinister force at play? A brand-new tale of dark fantasy and horror, from the bestselling author of WHAT HIDES WITHIN and SEEING EVIL.

    While this was a fast read, the pace of the story was not - which in this case is not meant as criticism. Of course, the action traveled in high gear, but several descriptive scenes appeared like in slow motion, where you are able to notice every little detail in perfect clarity. Another well-working constrast of the story was between the mystical cute little fairies and the horrendous otherworldly creatures. (The first image that came to mind was the cuddly little Blawp from Lost in Space - caused by some weird mental short circuit I guess.)While I did not care much for the colorless main character, and not at all for his shady companions, I loved the descriptions of the secret world they entered on their mission to find some real fairies or at least some valuable treasures. The ending was nasty of course, but somehow it managed to do so with a weird kind of grace. This novella conjures some very beautiful images to tell a not at all beautiful story...(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
