From the horror books I have read over the years I believe that it is difficult to put into words whatever is needed to scare a reader Words are not as effective as images which is why movies can make us jump and it takes a special blend to engage that visceral fear and bring it out of hidingIt was the combination of words that first aroused my interest Author Stephen Graham Jones wrote The Only Good Indians in a semi rambling deep from the heart mode and one can feel a cultural aspect seep through the pages and help mold the story This is a tale of four friends who were introduced to their culture but never uite understood it never embraced it never believed in its power until it took hold of them in all its fury and proceeded to teach an unforgettable lessonBe forewarned When you reach the final 20% of this book it will be impossible to stop reading The author begins with a mute fear that feeling that creeps up your back when you know you shouldn t walk in that old house or that dark basement but you tell yourself everything is okay and do it anyway That fear builds into a pulse pounding horror that drives a reader all the way to the final wordsThis story was my introduction to Stephen Graham Jones and the power of the tale already has me looking to see which one of his previous books I want to read next Highly recommended Five stars

No spoilers 2 starsDisclaimer Nobody gave me a freebie copy of this novel in exchange for my review I do not know the author personally nor his publisher so I paid full price for this preordered novel with my hard earned cash and my review is my honest opinionFirst the synopsis Four young Blackfeet men decide to go poaching a herd of elk on their elders land parcelUnder cover of night by moonlight they randomly shoot into a herd of grazing elk one of the animals slaughtered is a young elk cow trying to protect its unborn calfIt takes 3 bullets to kill the female elk all the while she is staring at her killer she is thinking You hide in the herd You wait And you never forgetTen years later the dead pregnant elk returns as Po noka in Blackfeet it means elk she is Elk Head Woman a woman with an elk s head and her spirit is a kind of shape shifter so she can possess different women and she will in order to get revenge against the Indians who killed her and her calfI looked so forward to reading this novel as I like a good Indian story like SCARLET PLUME by Fredrick Manfred and SACAJAWEA by Anna WaldoThe first 25% of the story was incomprehensible to me due to the author s style In addition Indian slang motorcycle slang and basketball slang and terminology are used throughout further confusing readers as to what is going on The last 20% was better but too little too lateI really can t recommend this novel to anyone and I don t think I ll be preordering anything else that hasn t been reviewed
