Here’s an excerpt from my review of Stolen Away by Kristin Dearborn. Read the rest at This Is Horror.
“Recently there have been a lot of novels published that could be thought of as action-horror fiction. Motorman, by Robert E. Dunn is one, as is Christopher Buehlman’s The Suicide Motor Club. Another book that falls firmly under that heading is Kristin Dearborn’s most recent novel from Raw Dog Screaming Press, Stolen Away. While not necessarily a new voice on the scene, many readers may not yet be familiar with her, but that will likely change soon. She’s too damn good not to sit up and take notice of. Dearborn’s no stranger to the horror scene, having several previous publications that have enjoyed success and proved her to be a force to be reckoned with in horror fiction. She’s got a knack for taking something that seems, on the surface, to be an old trope and making it into a thing that is purely Kristin Dearborn. Woman in White, her most recent novella from Darkfuse is a perfect sample of this. It’s a tale that takes a tired and oft used urban legend and turns it into something completely new and unexpected. And, as with that book, so it is with Stolen Away, but on a much grander scale.”
